So I'm about 90% done. Basket and air intake is all that is left. I would be done with the air intake but I'm debating one large ball valve or just a 3/4 with two nipples and caps. I'm very excited to fire this guy up this weekend. A lot of credit to all the previous builders on here for lots of ideas and a solid blue print of what to do. I'll add pics one I realize how to do it.

Been enjoying my mini so far this summer. Can't wait to join you and the others with the Jimmy build. Already have the jumbo joe just wanted to wait to see if I could find a cheap pot to keep the build price low. Did you use the concord pot?

Any smokes on this bad boy yet? Still haven't built mine. Can you lay a whole slab of spare ribs flat in there. Can't decide if I want to build the Jimmy or a UDS.

It’s pretty awesome. Here are two full slabs on the top grate. So I could run 4 easily and several more if I stood them in a rib rack.

Looking good! Are you aware of gallon drum that would work with the jumbo joe? I have seen some pictures with the jumbo joe and 18.5 kettle tops on ugly drum smokers but can never find out the size.
