Oh man, what a shiny cooker!

The door looks a bit off, you might want to try and bend it ever so slightly to get a tighter fit.

Yah I was wondering about the door. I'll try adjusting a bit. I noticed there are some replacement doors out there that are made of steel. I wondered if they were worth exploring.

Yeah, you can bend it to proper shape. The SS door is a great option as well. I'd roll stock and spend my $ on meat. :becky:

Hey Dan,
Everything looks good. Gotta love the WSM, eh?
But, if you're lookin', you ain't cookin'.
Keep the lid on the WSM and let it do it's magic.

Some final pics. I only took a picture of one of them before I pulled it. Not the best one, but they both turned out great.

Looks great, but ....

There's nothing on the lower rack! You could have a brisket down there. Or a couple more butts. There's space on the top where you could throw a few brats on (not the precooked ones) or some Polish and Italian sausage. I like to smoke up a few of something if I have space on the grate. Even a couple chicken legs would be nice.

Looks like excellent results for your first cook! :thumb:

Hey Hank,

Thanks! I was amazed at the space. I remember barely getting 1 10lbs butt on my kettle. I was gazing at the space today thinking about all the different combinations o things I could have smoking on that monster. Its awesome. I'm going to try loading it up real good in a couple weeks :D

I can squeeze 6 butts on an 18.5" WSM, can't imagine what you can fit on the bigger one.
