Very Nice build. I would like to see how well it seal and the temps you can get with it. Are you going to install any thermometers?

Wasn't me doing the welding I owe that to a good friend of mine. If you need a reference I am sure I can do just that.

Ordered some cheap temp gauges from Amazon but will still use my maverick regardless. Any gauge I put in wont be really long enough to get a accurate reading. I just need an idea so that I can have 3 diff cooking zones if needed and need the gauges just to be a quick reference. Plus I needed something above 475 degrees too.

Ordered 3 of these

I have one of these that I got from Spicewine:
Amazon.com: 3 Inch Large Smoker Thermometer: Home & Garden@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41UChDDa-WL.@@AMEPARAM@@41UChDDa-WL

The probe is like 3" long. It works fine. You just need to monitor the middle and then look at the side thermometer and learn the conversion factor. In my drum, it is like 20* diff without a diffuser, but with a 16" terracota pot diffuser it is often almost the same. But, it can shift back and forth between the center hotter and the edge. So....

I got a maverick that is rock on all the time. I need to set up 2-3 cook zones most of the time so just need to know whats going on side to side of that grill. I was going to but the Spicewine ones but they only go to 475 and the ones I got go up to at least 550 and they were $7 each. Going to put 3 on the lid. One on each side and one in the middle.

Did burn it out and seasoned it up over the weekend. Did a quick first cook of some brats and chicken. Didnt get pics as I was tired and lazy . Cooking on it was pretty sweet but noticed this sucker is going to consume a bit of fuel lol. Everything came out fantastic too. Having the room to set up zones is a huge plus.

I still want a Weber Ranch though :) but this is working out just fine.
