The Cajun Bandit 18.5″ WSM Upgrade Kit has been packaged to increase the fuel capacity of
your Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5″ Smoker and provides much needed
improvement to the fit and function of the standard Weber door that
comes supplied with your 18.5″ Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker. This kit
will provide for increased charcoal capacity, ease of use, and a sure
seal to eliminate smoke loss through the door.
The stainless steel coal ring included in this kit improves both
air flow regulation and much needed capacity for additional charcoal.
Eliminating the common issue of vent jamming seen on the standard coal
ring, consistent temperature control and adequate airflow is greatly
improved. With an increased interior volume this stainless steel coal
ring provides much needed capacity for additional fuel (charcoal) for
longer, uninterrupted smoking sessions. With an integral four tab grate
support system the stainless charcoal ring provides for easier cleaning
and dumping as a single piece. The ring is 15 1/2″ in diameter and 5″ tall.
A well known failure point of the Weber Smokey Mountain series of
smokers is the substandard door that it comes supplied with. This kit
comes complete with the perfect solution to unnecessary heat loss and
pesky smoke loss. Featuring an all stainless steel constructed 18 gauge
door, your problems of temperature control are exponentially improved.
Included with this door is an upgraded Lift & Turn latch that
provides for smoother and more confident door closure. No need to deal
with sticky glues and gaskets that will degrade overtime; this door is a
permanent solution and built to last. This door will work with the 2008 and older and the 2009 and newer models.
