    Just got me a wsm 22.5 and I'm a bit puzzled by the assembly instructions for the screw, nuts and spacers. Mostly it's in what order and what side of the smoker I should be putting these on. They have regular metal washers as well as some kind of synthetic or non-metal spacer. What order should I be putting these on for the legs as well as the water pan brackets?

    screw > leg > smoker > non-metal spacer > metal spacer > nut

    screw > leg > non-metal spacer > smoker >  metal spacer > nut

    screw > leg > metal spacer > smoker > non-metal spacer > nut

    etc...

    I just don't want to load up a pile of coals and have this thing tip over onto my feet after 3 hours.

    The non-metal spacers go on the outside against the enamel finish. They are there to protect the outside enamel, the metal ones on the inside.
