Talking Mini WSM Build and First Smoke (also first smoke ever)

Well, I received all my parts for the Mini on Friday and got to work. An hour later and I had my first ever smoker, with big plans of having a new addiction!

I used plans from Matt_A with a little help from everyone else that put pictures on here from their build (thank you so much for everyone's help)!

Using a jigsaw with a tile cutting blade, the bottom of the pot came out with no problems.

And... On the test run.

And for my first smoke (Sunday), I used a chuck roast because I was scared of messing up and didn't want to pay dearly ($$) for it. It took around 5 hours to get up to the temperature I was looking for and then I wrapped it and let it rest for 3 painful hours. Making a bbq sauce from a recipe I found on the forums killed a half hour.

Plated (my wife who thought I was crazy because we already have a nice gas grill, couldn't stop saying how good it was and already started planning dinner parties around my new addiction....mission accomplished!!)

Thank you so much to everyone on this forum, I love it here! Now I just have to decide what I should make next.

If anyone has any questions on my build, please don't hesitate, I'd love to help.
