The first smoke with the hinge and handle mod went very well. You wouldn't think it be a big deal just adding a hinge and handle but I wanted to make sure that I didn't add any unwanted air leaks in the lid and cause temp fluctuations. Did a 12lb butt that took 14 hours and it held a constant 240°. Very happy with it. I didn't get pics but my Mom did. So as soon as I get a copy I will post them up. Next up will be a paint job.
