Another one of my readers, Joe, built his first “Mini” Weber Smokey Mountain (or “WSM”) the other day and was kind enough to send me pics of the build. I gotta hand it to him, he did a great job. I especially like the blue paint job. Pics and Joe’s captions are below. Also check out my step by step guide for building your own Mini.
“I decided to cut out the entire bottom out instead of drilling holes. I hope this will give me higher temps when needed for chicken and hot/fast recipes. I am going to use the steamer rack that came with the SJG and cut it down to size and foil for the diffuser. I also added an extra rack so that I can have 3 if needed.”
“I also added a cajun bandit grommet for my maverick temp probe instead of adding a built in temp gauge.”
“I added a few die cut decals and peeled them off after the paint job.”
“I painted in VHT Blue and clear gloss and added a handle and came up with this.”
“It goes well with my favorite weekend toy.”
