Damn stuff is thin and hard to weld.

Good thing I am good at it.
You're excellent at it. Your correct, very thin.  My basket had weld boogers all over it. But it's functional!!

Looks great!  How did the temp run during the smoke? 
Temps were good. I was playing with it and took very little adjustment.

Went from 250 to 350 very easy, and back down.

Thanks Case.

Amazed at how easy temps are to change and then make steady again.

That's one of the best features about the mini. I have no problem leaving the mini and running a quick errand if I have to during a long cook. (yes I  only do that when I know there is no possibility of it burning down half the neighborhood)

Old thread here peachey
I want to here your tip. Even if it is an old thread it’s still relevant.

Maybe we should have a throwback Thursday and feature some of theses oldie but goodie threads.

I don't know peachy. That's some pretty thick stuff. I'm thinking a 1/4" 7018 rod and about 260 amps..... I have a calculator somewhere for cutting truncated cones that would work great for Minion style charcoal baskets. Now I just need to find it....

Seriously though, I may have to build one of these for giggles. I have two Smokey Joes and have a Jumbo Joe in the box.
