Mini WSM?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Maybe this has been answered already, but would it be possible to use the 18.5 midsection to make a WSM mini starting with the Smokey Joe?

Yes but only the Jumbo Joe and most likely only if it's upside down like the extensions.

So the midsection would have to be upside down?

Maybe.. Not for sure. Either way it should work. All I know is the extensions needed to be upside down to fit the Jumbo joe but it works.

Hmm. I wonder if anyone has tried it. I would think the it should be about the same on dimensions.

Sure but the mid section is expensive which is one reason I'm building a 30 gallon UDS, it'll have an 18 " cooking surface

Well, I actually have an extra midsection, so I wanted to check before I looked into buying a Smokey Joe.

The math says it'll work, worst case it wouldn't be hard to make it work but I doubt worst case would come into play.... Oh and you meant to say Jumbo Joe

Yeah, I mean Jumbo Joe. The lid and bottom should both fit you think? That would be a really cheap mini WSM.

Yea absolutely.. I'd do the same thing if I wasn't doing the 30 gallon. What's really nice with that set up is when traveling the joe clamps together to keep the charcoal secure.

I will try it, that way I can get a really cheap second WSM. Thanks!
