Yes, the bottom of the pot fits like it was made for it.
The tpo has a small gap, the outer lip of the lid sticks out
from the pot maybe 1/8th to 5/32thsall the way around. When I do the break-in I'll see if I need a thin roll of aluminun foil to close the gap or not.
I'll post resultswhen I have them.

The mini-WSM is pretty damned awesome... it will be even more awesome the next time I cook on it since my Maverick ET-732 is en route according to Amazon.com!
I have a 10lb brisket that is about 1" too long. did you fold your flat under or over to make it fit? I was thinking I could fold my flat under until I get enough shrinkage to make it fit. any suggestions

Heres Mine



You can check out the complete build thread by clicking the link in my sig.

The main thing I did differently was creating a lip out of the lid to add to the stability.

We cooked MOINK Balls on one of the kid's Mini WSMs today. Very happy with the way it worked.
I think I need to put bigger holes in the can that covers the bottom vent holes though. Even with everything wide open it didn't want to go above 225 or so.

Default Recommended Rack Heights?

If you want to use two racks on the mini, what are the recommended heights?
