you would have to find a properly sized pot- that might be a problem

True, but in the short time I've been here, I've seen brethren turn barrels, propane tanks, trailers & everything in between into functioning smokers that turn out fabulous q.

I'm convinced that its a matter of "when," not "if."

just get a pro q staker for 50 bucks off ebay.

I've only seen a handful of reviews on the Jumbo Joe period. I really thought there would be more.

30gallon drums fit the Jumbo Joe perfectly and you can make a Jumbo mini with it. I have seen several pictures of them when i was searching for Jumbo mini's

I'd like to see that!

I have a 30 gallon and my Gen1 SJP would not fit on it. Not that I would have wanted to make one but at least I tried it on. I ended up cutting up a rustbucket 18" kettle and welding the flange on the drum so the lid would fit on it.

My drum was to large in diameter, if you can find one that fits good luck.

Probably because the Jumbo Joe was pretty hard to find until its revival for this year. Add to that the problem of 30gallon drums being pretty rare and you have a scarcity of midi WSM's.

I bought a Pro-q stacker off of eBay that fits well on my old Jumbo Joe, not sure if it fits on the new ones. It has to be inverted to fit but it works. Sorry, no link but you can just search on eBay.

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

Add to that, the 18.5 WSM which is the same size. The mini-WSM at 14.5 fit my desire for a smaller smoker. Perfect for a couple of chickens, small turkey or medium size brisket. My original motivation was to have something for small smokes to try different smoking woods w/out committing an entire smoke in the 18.5 WSM to a test. Had Weber sold a smaller product I would have added one to my collection. (In fact they did at one time, but I have never seen one on sale and if one showed up now, the price on CL or eBay would probably be prohibitive.)

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.

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.

boogiesnap 01-17-2013 07:25 AM

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.

Has anyone tried one of these to make a Jumbo Joe Mini? If so, how is the fit?

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

pitbossJB 06-18-2014 04:19 PM

I'm sure that's next on my list, I'm officially looking for a drum right now.:thumb:

Fwismoker 06-18-2014 04:28 PM

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

kajunatwork 06-18-2014 08:10 PM

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.
