It is easy and they work great.... I built this one for my Egg, it's diameter is closer to the charcoal grate. It;s just a ring only. It wasn't quite right for my Smokey Joe Tallboy (mini WSM)
So I made a second one for it...the ring is bolted together like the one above, and then wired to the round expando bottom. I bet one like this for a full size WSM would work fine too.
