    It's really up to the area you live in on what can be done. In a subdivision it gets to be a bit harder. Out in the country anything goes.

    I finally got the back wall and table finished.    Fulfills my needs now.   If I do another one in the near future, it will be at least a 20x20 for an true "outdoor kitchen".  Pic looks a little askew because I cropped it to fill the frame.

    Ah I see. The fingerprints and smudges sure make it look like it’s galvanized!

    Hello from a new kamado owner from Saskatchewan. Just recently purchased a rebranded Akorn (Master Chef) from my local Canadian Tire. It was on sale for $249.93 Cad. I also had a coupon for 50x CT rewards so I got $25.99 back in credit.  Pretty good deal for us up here in Canada.

     
    Since it didn’t come with a heat deflector of any sort, and a smokin’ stone is $100 up here off amazon.ca, I decided to make my own out of 1/8” steel. I figured while I’m at it, I may as well make it a drip pan too. 

     
    Works great!  First cook was a couple racks of beef short ribs but I forgot to get a picture. Had a bit of an issue getting the temperature below 300F. Lower cent completely closed, upper just cracked. It actually ran at around 300F with both closed. So I took the lower vent off, siliconed around it and put it back on. Then tightened up the slider with some foil tape. Still needs some more sealing as it won’t quite snuff the fire out. Anyway then I did some turkey drumsticks for my wife and they turned out great. 

    Third cook was a brisket point I turned into burnt ends and it was amazing! I have pictures but they aerial uploaded yet. 
     
    I put a second gasket on the ash pan but have yet to use it to see if the fire can be put out now. I gotta say, I really like it so far. So much that I bought an Akorn JR from Walmart yesterday on clearance for $129. I think I’m going to use the canning rack setup on this one.

    You used galvanized metal to hold the firepot in place?  None for me, thanks.
