Great work on this lil monster. Enjoy it.
Not quite :)
Smokey Joe Silver - $30
Stainless Steel Pet Food Bowl - $4
Tamale Steamer Pot - $24
Clearance Price Grill to rob grate (and lid for another project) - $8.50
SS Nuts/Bolts/Washers - $10
Total - About $77
In reality, $45 because the Smokey Joe is still completely functional as a grill. This is a two-fer-one setup. I could have saved a couple bucks by NOT buying those stainless steel acorn nuts. They look nice but a 5 pack of the from Lowes was a little over six bux.
It's been running for 5 hours now and the temp is sitting fairly steady at 255°.
I also found a use for the tamale steamer insert from the pot. Inverted, it will work very well as a trivette for the pot if I need to take it off the kettle for charcoal and/or wood chip maintenance.
