Crimping the lip ain't no big deal. It is gonna get gunked up after a few cooks anyway...

You can order the vasconia 32 quart steamer pot at walmart.com and have it shipped to your local store. They will ship from a store that has one to your local store for a pretty reasonable price. I checked there is a bunch of stores that have them in California. When I ordered mine thru walmart that's where mine came from.

I got this one from WalMart online, it's the "Made In China" one and is a great fit.


My second one is a Vasconia and I think I got it on Amazon, I like the heavy duty handles, and the fit is just as good.

I bought the Vasconia from Walmart when it was on sale, a couple of months ago. I have been looking for a deal on a S J Gold either new, or used on Craigslist. No luck so far.

Great looking smoker! It looks like it is built with the SM Silver. I can get a Silver from my local Ace hardware for about 30 bucks. I was thinking that the Gold was the "go to" for the mini WSM. What is the difference in the performance between the two?

The difference if mostly preference. With the silver most people put a can with holes to make sure the intake doesn't get ashed up. I like the intakes on the side of the gold so I went with that. Ordered it shipped to store from Walmart.

It's all good Peeps, everybody has something that they spend way more money on than they should.

The way I see it, I cook almost everyday and before I was going thru 2 1/2 bags + a week, now with the mini, one bag has lasted a week and a half. That $40 pot I bought will be paid for very quick!!!

Even if you spend double (or triple) on the pot, you are still in it for less than half the cost of a 14.5" WSM from Weber, so

I use the mini almost daily and a 20 lb bag will last several weeks in the mini....granted some are smaller cooks.
