22.5 Super Jumbo Joe/WSM
1 Attachment(s)
A month ago, I was the recipient of fellow Brethren Bob In St. Louis' scuffed lid and out-of-round barrel from his 22.5 WSM. (See:

Well, I finally have it just about ready to use. I acquired a grey, 3 daisy wheel, metal handle Bar B Kettle shortly after getting the WSM parts. Door and water pan arrived earlier this week, and I sacrificed my old, rusty Meco bullet smoker to make the charcoal ring (16" diameter). Finally found a bit of time this evening to get the kettle bottom cleaned out, and also shortened the legs on it (it's now just 8" above the ground).

I was able to work on the WSM barrel a bit, and hopefully have "fixed" it enough so that I don't have the same problem Bob was having with the lid getting stuck to the barrel... if I do, the Kettle lid fits quite nicely on the barrel.

I love it in it's current state... it looks like a Super Jumbo Joe! That being said, I can't wait to add the WSM parts. Hoping to get a test burn in tomorrow... maybe throw a fattie and some wings on, too!

I'm a bit concerned about ash build up over the daisy vents on the bottom. i might need to add the miniWSM SJS can mod to cover them. We'll find out. If anyone has any suggestions or thoughts about that, please share.

Here's a pic of the Super Jumbo Joe... will be adding more of it in WSM form (hopefully tomorrow)!

Wow, that's a great score! Congrats!

WSM fully assembled and just started a test burn! Going to throw on a naked fattie and some wings in a bit...

It was definitely a good test burn... can't wait to throw something bigger on! Here she is, as well as the fattie and 3 lbs of wings.

How did you get the wsm body to fit on the kettle?? I didn't think they were meant to fit with each other. Pretty cool though.

If they built the barrel to not fit a standard kettle, they didn't do a very good job... it slid right on top, no problem!

Very cool! It looks cool as a shorty. Then you added the wsm parts and it looks even cooler. Lets see some mad pron off that thing:thumb::thumb:

That's a sweet setup. Let's see more food :)

I feel like a proud poppa!
Thanks for the ping Bob, I'm REAL glad you've got the WSM-F* up and running.
That's a great looking nekkid fattie too.
