Default Pot size for mini help

I saw a post last week about building a mini, and I'm going to give it a try. I'm using a smoky Joe gold and not sure what size Imusa pot to order. I think its the 32 qt. but not sure. It says the 32 is 13 dia, and want to be sure it will fit before I order, because I can't find one at a store. Just like to know if its the one that fits the bottom and the lid fits good with out any mods. Any help would be great.

I just built one 2 weeks ago and used the 32qt IMUSA. I bought it from Bed Bath and Beyond for $39. Fits like it was made for it.

When I built mine I checked all the big/little box stores to no avail. Now I see them any and every time I go to the GROCERY store. Any and all of them. Top shelf of the kitchen gadget aisle.

Vasconia is normally the best fit but Walmart is out of stock. There is another place online that has them for a decent price but the name is escaping me right now...If i think of it i'll let you know

I have never used or heard of this site but it turned up in a Google search and they appear to have stock.

Amazon has it but the cost is a little high, $57.47. I got lucky when searching for mine and Pfaltzgraff had just got some in and had 1 left in stock for $29.99. Still have not got the Smokey Joe or any other parts yet though.

I just finished my mini. I tried the IMUSA pot from Walmart but the top was too big. I got lucky and scored a Vasconia from Pfaltzgraff for 25 bucks so i used that.

You can use the IMUSA pot but you have to crimp the top.

A few reasons why the vasconia is better.

1. The top of the smokey joe fits with no mods
2. The handles have silicon grips.
3. You can use the Lid knob from the vasconia as a handle for your smokey joe damper.

I ordered the pot today from Walmart, and the Smokey Joe gold. I couldn't find the pot any where. I looked on the virtual Weber bullet build site and they said get the one from china not Columbia and it will fit great. Guess Ill find out and let every one know.

I've heard the imusa can vary in size and it's worth going to Walmart to see if you can see if one fits the lid.
