Default Finished my Mini WSM today

Had to share a few pics. I call him Wee Man

Installed a Brinkman thermometer, we'll see how accurate it is

Cut out the bottom of the pot and put a charcoal grate from an 18.5 kettle in the bottom

And a base to a pot as the diffuser.

Now I need to decide what his first cook will be. Thanks for taking a look!

Nice job. I have to finish the one I started a couple of months ago. I already cut the bottom of the pot out, bought the 18.5" charcoal grate and clay saucer, thermometer and stainless steel hardware to put it together. I have been procrastinating on making a charcoal basket instead of just using what I have.

After I built mine, I cooked on it so much that Mrs ~t~ asked if I was going to sell the Eggs.

Nice paint job. That looks great except for that big zero on the side.

Nice job. Don't forget to wrap that clay diffuser in aluminum foil before you use it.

Any tips on what to use for a charcoal basket/ring?
