Mini WSM build complete!

Postby Clayfish » 13 Aug 2012, 11:00

I put together my Mini WSM last week and seasoned it with brisket and wings but I didn't paint it until this weekend, so here goes my build...

Tamale pot from Amazon.com shipped to the UK, it was slightly out of round from the journey but nothing a little strategic pressure couldn't fix and it fits the Smokey Joe like it was meant to be. Ordered an extra Smokey Joe grate, an ebay thermometer from Korea and some stainless nuts and bolts.

Drilled 20mm holes in the bottom with a step bit using the steamer plate for the template.
Image

Added the thermometer & bolts for the grills.
Image

Put it all together.
Image

Full of lump and oak.
Image

An unrolled brisket roast.
Image

And a few test wings, rescued from the dogs dinner.
Image

Cheap Korean thermometer seems to be doing well so far.
Image

Snack time...

Newly painted with gloss black high-temperature paint and standing proudly next to his big brother.
Image

This time loaded up with two grills of wings - Soy/Sesame/Honey below, Butt Rub with added Chipotle powder on top.
Image

Chugging away, making me fatter.

Family photo.

My guests ate the wings before I could take a photo.

Thanks for looking.

What is the outside diameter of this tamale pot? I wonder if there is anything available in the UK which one could use instead.

Just built one of these myself. Ordered the pot from Amazon but after I ordered it I seen a similar on in Makro. It was a 36cm stock pot. Didn't try it but it sure looked close to the right size.
