    New WSM door from Cajun Bandit

    Getting ready for tomorrows smoke and just installed the new stainless door from Cajun Bandit on my WSM. Doing a quick burn just to christen it, (the new door) Its not near as tight as I thought it be but it looks like I can tweak it if needed. I'm not passing judgement till I cook with it. The order/delivery was perfect thats for sure.


    Watch this space for more info and pics....

    Oh BTW it looks flippin cool as all get out!

    How does it compare to the other door as for as fit?


      appears tighter on the X and a bit looser on the z which I should be able to adjust by spreading the x just a bit

              That's one fantastic rib!

            Holy smoke ring jrod. That's amazing


              For some reason ribs really soak up those gases. On the thinner pieces it is 99% ring.


                Have you lost pork to the coals from hanging to long?


                  Never. I have had some wanting to give some. Once they pass the bend test, typically about 15-20 more minutes, and they are perfect, sauced or not. I paint on sauce once they pass the test for wet ribs.


                    I'm looking forward to your experience with the new door, Jon. I'm considering one myself.

                    Really nice ribs, Jerod!


                      Hi Jon, I have one of those doors too. I like mine, it's a much better fit than the original for sure. This is the only mod I did to my 22'5" WSM. Well, I did add another great to cross/double up on the original for the charcoal. Have you done anything else to yours? I really want to find a good way to put handles on the mid section. Jim



                        Handles would be great especially on a 22. I wanted to put handles on mine but then the cover won't fit so I didn't. I hang my thermometer sending unit bracket with magnet for the same reason.

                        All I've done was cut a slot for my partyQ cable and blow holes in it for the probes and add the door.

                        Cable slot:

                        Therm bracket:

                        The CB door:

                          Very cool Jon. Yeah, I have a half baked idea for handles that could come off. Haven't thought it all out yet.

                          That's a great idea with the magnets. Also, that slot is really well done. How did you do that if you don't mind?

                        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
