I think I'll call it "Little Miss Sunshine"!

I salvaged an old steel canister vacuum and cut the bottom off it and gave it a new place to set a spell, the bottom of a modified Smokey Joe Silver. I plugged the bottom vents and drilled three 3/4" intakes on the side (same area as the Weber Tuck n' Carry & SJG)

Use magnets to control the draft, like my UDS's

Made a charcoal ring from expando and got a 5 Qt. stainless steel dog bowl for a waterpan/heat sink.

Smoker Joe needed some attention and I filled his innards up with some Maple Leaf Lump with Cherry and Maple for smoke and tossed on a CAB Tri-Tip for good measure!

I can set it on the Cajun Bandit Smoker Joe and get 2 more grates for smoking too!

Stay hungry!
