Lee why do this if you have a probe port? For a more direct path to the top rack?Chris, our host, has a shopping list of mods. I did the slot for my probe cables and the charcoal grate/ring mods. https://www.virtualweberbullet.com/operating-tips-modifications/#modifications
Interesting. My list would be similar, but reversed. Heater meter would be at the top. I drilled holes in the damper tabs so I can stick a screwdriver through them to adjust. Handles on the shell interfere with the silicone cover, which is also high on my list. Lid hinge is handy, but creates it's own problems with tipping of the barrel. I guess my favorite mods are the ATC, rib hanger, silicone cover and stainless door, in that order.
What are your main wants or needs out of your next purchase? These are two very different animals. Either way, I’d suggest buy which ever one you think will make you happiest... but research the pros and cons of both and make an informed decision.Any upgrades to the weber smoky mountain 18 inch cooker?
I have a pellet smoker now and I am looking at buying either a Kamado style cooker or a weber smoky mountain 18 inch cooker any thoughts or recommendations?
