I just want to thank you all again. I'm usually a lurker around here learning from all the great advise that's freely given around here.
Last week my wife brought me a smokey joe silver she had won at a company picnic. I had it put together and charcoal burning in itminutes. What a fun little grill. The next morning I searched the SJS on the forum and I find the mini section.
I ran off to Target, grabbed the only Imusa pot they had, figuring if it didn't fit I could use it for its real purpose. The pot fit, ( with a little crimping around the top), and it was on sale $17.50.
A few more bits and pieces, extra grates, expanded steel charcoal basket, tin can ash shield, plus a new rib rack, and great ideas from here, my new mini. It's plain, no painting for me.
Tonight's St Louis ribs came out great. The thing held steady between 225 - 250 for 6 hours, without much trouble. Could have gone longer. I'm going to have fun with this!
Now for Q-View. Thank again to all.
