30 gallons drums are scarcer than Jumbo Joes/Smokey Joe Platinums for me.

The new SJP's have the vent on the bottom, which I'm not a fan of on the 14" SJ's.

Here is one. There was another seller on there that was doing 'best offer' as well if you want to wait and see if they start selling them again...I got one for $40. Good luck

That didn't work at all on my new Jumbo Joe. Waited on the edge of my seat for a week to get it, threw it away a day later.

I'd dig it out of the trash. Supposedly they fit the 18.5 ots very well. Or just resell it.

would it be a "mini"? isn't the jumbo joe the same size as an 18.5 WSM without the barrell?

i suppose one could call weber to get an 18.5 WSM barrell. my concern would be due to the volume the single intake may hinder proper airflow.

It is a big snug but nothing a little modding can't take care of.

FWI has made a midi out of a Jumbo Joe. I am not sure what pot he used

I would listen to him.

He is royalty ya know.

TroyA65 06-18-2014 06:58 PM

To answer your question, YES and he calls it a "Jimmy". Here is the link http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=173767

Thanks for the link to FWI's thread. I see that the pot he used was a Concord is the brand and the measurements were 17.5" bottom and a 18.5" top. So from that I will assume that if 17.5 inches was perfect for the bottom then the one that I found that was 18" diameter will not fit. Am I correct there FWI?

Thanks.

Yes sir you are correct. The bottom of the Concord fits perfect. The top is a tad small for the jumbo lid but it's way workable. I put some stove gasket in the lids lip but i imagine one could put it around the pots lip also. Either way it's better the lid be a hair large then too small.

Originally when i asked the seller for the measurements they were off by 1/2" on the top.

kajunatwork 06-18-2014 09:15 PM

Well that's no good. I thought I had found a stock pot that would have been a little more economical than the stainless steel one. Oh well.
