Default Smokey Joe Mini Done!

Finally got all the parts and pieces for my little smoker. I used a 32q Winware Aluminum pot, I used rivets to hold the grates up, I powder coated it black and drilled several holes in the bottom. Then added a Taylor thermometer to the outside...

The bottom grate is a Craycort cast iron...


Holes drilled...


The powder coating done and thermo in place!

Thanks for looking.

I was asking around about the size/fit of the Winware pot and Hankeye (many thanks) suggested the CI for a little more weight in the bottom of the pot for stability. I also really wanted a set of the CI grills for searing steaks and stuff on the Smokey Joe. They do a fantastic job of searing btw.
