    Found the pot at Target for $21. Only issue I had was the top didn't fit on so I crimped the edges. Cosmetically I can't say she's pretty but I guess it has some character now and that sucker fits on pretty tight now. I added the handles on the vents because they did get hot and added the heat diffuser as welI.  had burgers planned for the grill but I fired the mini up and cooked them on it. they turned out nice; the smoker seemed to be sealed up nice and tight.....It looks promising for my pork shoulder on Saturday.

    Nice mini. They are great little cookers. I use mine a couple times a week.

    Have fun with it.

    Look great! You're gonna love the food!
     
  4. Nice build, I started using mine with out painting it and then later cleaned it up and painted the outside. I took my SJS lid to Target with me to try it on each pot and found one that fit perfect. Still trying to decide which I like better the 14.5 or my MINI. I do actually love them both! Of course the wife said NO MORE GRILLS luckily smokers are not grills

    I like it...even with the crimped edge...Nice job!

    The crimping adds character.

    HAHA, yeah my wife wasn't happy about "destroying" a perfectly good pot. I tried telling her it was going to get more use than any other pot we have in the kitchen and she proceeded to ask me which "grill" I was going to sell!! Iv'e had the thing for a few days and already cooked burgers, Cornish hens, and the boston butt has been in since this morning. I'm confident she will be sold after dinner tonight.
