I know its not a cabinet style but something to think about.

My only real issue with the 20" series is that it is thinner steel. It's 3/16" compared to 1/4". Plus I wouldn't have the same capacity. Granted it would probably handle 90% of the cooks I do, I rather have a little extra space. They do look like great cookers. I've seen some of the reviews on YouTube. Plus I like the ide of the tuning plates. Yes they're more work, but they provide flexibility.

Yep I do plan to get the 1/2" fire box mainly for the reason of longevity. If or when it starts to peal it'll be easy enough to sand down and repaint with high temp paint. And thank you. I was a bit concerned about binding as the metal expanded because it looks like LSG's moving parts fit pretty snug as is. I'm glad to know these cookers will do fine at the higher temps.
