FF version 22.5

I've started cooking and elected to break in the new WSM 22.5. Afterall this is a contest where only I will know if everything came out OK. I did notice a leak where the Maverick probe wire comes out under the lid. It's not a roundness issue because it seals without the wire. Must be a lack of grease seal issue and there's only one way to correct that. I won't post any pics of what is inside until after the deadline so as not to influence the judges unduely (besides they may not have received their envelopes of cash yet).

Don't worry too much about the leakage where the probe goes under the lid Griff, I still get that on my one WSM that does not have the eyelets installed. It's not that big a deal and it will get a little better with the more cooks you do on it, but it will still leak a little.
