This smoker is 4 years old, some moisture will get by the metal.

OK, this is cool. Thanks for posting this - I got it now. I'm going to do the same. Great idea and again, appreciate you sharing!

He doesn't have D-rings?
Not sure if you have any fab skills but the winch can be mounted under the deck and the cable run on top with a pulley or even the rollers that are commonly used for atv/bumper mounted winches. I'm in Orland if your close I could lend a hand.

I can't even cut a straight line with a table saw

We cook out of a toy hauler and use the inside as our prep area and then sleeping area, so I really can't have anything that is permanently mounted above the floor otherwise we would be tripping over it.

Is everyone that has the assassin still happy with their choice? I am seriously considering ordering one in the next few weeks.

I am definitely happy with mine. This past weekend I smoked two pork butts and I basically fired it up, set the Guru and didn't touch it until the meat hit 190 degrees, then I started checking until it probed the way I wanted it to. Came out great. I posted this thread about it: http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=173985

You do have to learn to use it but for me it only took about three cooks. I find that food seems to get done a little faster than it did in my BGE, even when using the same cooking temperature. Personally, I can't imagine you being unhappy with the Assassin.
