Well I am done with the mini WSM. I will fire it up in the next couple of days to test it out. I had so much fun making this thing I want to make them and sell them.
Smokey Joe Silver - $8 - Flea Market
32 Quart Tamale Pot - $18 Flea Market
2 - 7431 grills - $20 (Do not buy the 7440, they are about 1/4 inch too small.)
1 - 10'' terra cotta pot saucer
1 - bbq gauge stole from other smoker
1- Engine paint (black)
4- 1'' magnets (converted the silver to a gold with side air vents)
I did the whole thing for about $65. I cut out the bottom and then cut the ring off the steamer plate the pot came with. This way I can have the steamer tray in for low and slow cooks and remove it for high heat cooks.
Let me know if you like it and have any questions
The lid did not fit good so I used the vise grips and clamped down the lip of the pot a little bit. Now it has a great seal.
