Another thing that I did was to attach the lid of the tamale pot to the bottom of the pot. Gives a nice lip to seat the pot to the Smokey joe.
Ah, I wasn't thinking about room for charcoal, good point. I will definitely look over all your threads before I start building.

Awesome, this is very helpful to see the placement of the bulkhead adapter.Did you start with a Smokey Joe gold or silver?
(oh and sweet looking ribs, too!) :)
