    Looks really good!   Kinda surprised you painted stainless but yea it looks good.   How hot is she getting now?

    I was debating painting but this will be my smoker I take to drill with me.  Heck I was thinking I could smoke a pork butt all day in the bed of the truck and have it ready for the party later!

    As for how hot it gets, I will be firing it up later to do 3 racks or ribs....I will see where she goes.

    3 racks went well and I did a butt yesterday.  I have 3 1/2 inch valves for air.  I think I still need ONE more.  I held 220 pretty well during my last smoke.

    All in all, great little machine.  I am doing 3 butts on it for family reunion in two weeks and I can't wait!

    And I bought a 22.5 inch WSM cover and it fits pretty darn good!

    I had it up to 355 during my last smoke.  I need some bigger valves but I do not see myself doing anything but 225-250.... I've gotten alot of compliments on it.

    By cover I meant the cover to keep her dry... Anyone have a WSM lid I can purchase? What are the dimensions?
     
  14. Great build mate and it looks to be working well..

    I also made a stainless cooker from a keg, but need a couple of shelves now for it.
    Did the 14" rack fit well?? And how close to 14" is it? My inside diameter
    Is 14.1" so needs to be pretty accurate.

    The 18.5" grates are what I have in mine. They are 17.5".
     
  16. I though you grabbed a 14" for the charcoal basket?

    It's probably 13.5".  I will take a measurement on my mini - same grill grates.
     
  18. That would be sweet.
    Thanks
     
  19. All good mate. I just found my answer lol.
    Actual grate diameter is 13.5"
    Prefect for my setup.
