Been lurking for a while, finally pulled the trigger on building a mini. I'm a backyard hack at smoking meats on my kettle, and have really been eying the WSM's for a while. Found this project and I love a DIY over store bought product any day of the week. Smoked some chicken thighs wrapped in bacon today to get a feel for temps today, tomorrow I throw a pork butt on. Love this project and really appreciate everyone sharig your ideas and expertise.
