    Nice work.

    What style of handle is on the barrel? Where did you get them?

    Thank you.

Also added a gasket around the interior of the midsection where the lid rests on the upper midsection.

    Really took my time with this project to ensure the original finish wasn't scratched during the upgrade work.
    I used only stainless steel bolts, nuts, and washers so as not to have any failure of strength due to prolonged high temperatures.

    The handles look like they are made for a WSM. Where did you find them?

    A lot of that stuff looks like it came from a UDS parts supplier. Pretty cool.

    Me too, good idea.

    But in the 16 years I've owned my WSM, I bet I've not had the door off during a cook more than a handful of times. But I might've if I had that set up.
