    Cutting oil might be a good idea when drilling through stainless.

    Well, I fired it up today and cooked a fatty to break it in.


    Here is the assembled smoker in the light of day.


    That is ROCK SOLID and held from about 4:00 until 10:00 when I shut it down for the night.


    Love me a fatty!


    This shot is too dark.


    But THIS one? Priceless.

    My ONLY disappointment with this build is that the holes for the air intake vents did not line up correctly. I used the paper templates as instructed, but the holes did not line up. My strong recommendation is that you drill your first holes for the vents and then push down the vent to mark the remaining holes. My vent mounts look awful, but the smoker works extremely well (after run 1) I just wish the vents looked as cood as the rest of the smoker. [This is not a dig at BPS. I just wish I had approached the vents differently.]

    I finished mine today as well and had the exact same problem. No worries just had to drill one more hole on each vent about 1/4" over
