Congratulations! Get your self a Tel-Tru thermo and if you plan on storing your new toy in the garage or someplace else, build yourself a mobile cart to push it around on. Much easier then taking it apart each time. Here's a link to what I did. I had a better shot of it but can't seem to find it. http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tp ... 4390060245

I don't think it really needs any immediate mods. I'd get a candy thermometer to stick through the top vent and you're ready to rock!

It's pretty much money out of the box.

I agree. I bought a therm and put it in the top vet thru some cork. That's it and that's all.

Oh wait...I lied. I made the Piedmont Pan, life is so much better!!!

No mods to think of, but if you have trouble getting the temp to 225 quickly it may be because of the water. I have stopped using water in my pan and if I need to I take off the side door for a min or two to get the air moving.

Have fun! (like I need to say write that )

Dude! Fill the charcoal ring, mix a few chunks of wood in with it, light about 15 of KingsFord's finest in a chimney starter, Light that bad boy Minion Method, throw a nicely seasoned butt on, and let her rip!!
Take lots of pics!
Congrats and good luck!

I love mine. I put 8 butts on 2 WSM's last night at 7 and they are at 175 now. Nuthing like making money while you sleep. They dont need any mods. I use a Maverick therm in the top vent ( www.wolferub.com ) and sand in the pan. Great buy. Lets see some pics.
