Donk, yep there is a separate temp probe hole, and it is shown on one of the pics by the handle.

Steam pans, don't know the answer to that question. I believe the grates are 23 1/2 X 23 1/2 inches to fit into the 24X24 inch box. Does that help?

I've only done an intial season on it so far, and then I immediately left the state with the family. So it's sitting in my garage miles away, patiently awaiting it's inaugural brisket run!!

I'm looking forward to cooking in it soon.

The quality of the construction is impressive. I've got a couple of Engineering degrees, so I tend to look at mechanical devices / tools / toys with a "discerning" eye, whether it be a new car or as in this case, a new smoker.

I don't believe you will be dissappointed in the quality of the Assassin. Stumps I hear are awesome smokers too - don't know what your current wait time is. I had my new Assassin delivered to my home in approximately 21 calendar days, and I'm in Texas, Jeff Conley is in Macon Georgia.

Donk, sorry I missed your guru question. Yes, Jeff Conley sent a brand new BBQ Guru with fan and attachment piece that fits on the Assassin. I haven't run it yet, but will soon.

Astonishingly beautifully crafted cooker.

Thanks for the info. You are a Good man putting family first. Must be hard leaving your new toy in the garage! I've just put an Assassin on my Christmas list. Damn you Dave Ramsey! I don't know if I can wait that long.

We just got ours this week. The thing is unreal. Just one problem though....the assassin sticker was put on very crooked and is full of air bubbles. Other than that she is incredible. Can't wait to season her on st. Patrick's day while sipping on a few Guinness

Does the BBQ Guru fan just snap in to the end of the ball valve or was there supposed to be an attachment to connect it? It fits in the opening but not sure that it will stay secure

Nice looking smoker. How far apart are the racks?

That's a bummer about the sticker. Can you remove it without messing up the paint?

I wonder if you can order one with the sticker not attached?

I'd call Jeff or Robin. My guess is, and this is a guess, they'll recommend you carefully pull off the old sticker and they'll send you a new one with instructions for properly installing it.

Again, I'm willing to bet a Coke that they won't leave you hanging on this.

Matt and Perfect Rack: Currently I'm about 600 miles from my smoker three states over on Spring Break with the fam. So, I don't know about the guru or the rack spacing. I'll be home tomorrow and check on both those.

Perfect Rack, I was hoping the BBQ guru install was a simple screw together affair - but I did not play with it during my initial seasoning run. I did get it out of the box and look at it, but didn't do that while I was near my Assassin to "see" how it fits on the open ended valve.

Did you figure it out by chance?

In all candor, it really does appear to be fairly "robustly" built. I'm hoping I'll be able to get years of smoking from it before I have to repair / retrofit parts. Only time will tell.
