Got my 045 last week. First cook: St Louis Ribs. Good Eatin'!!
045 is great, but I don't like bending/kneeling over all the time to clean it, etc. Didn't want to spend the big bucks for the factory stand, but I found this:
Mounted the 045 to it yesterday, using the bolt holes on the 045 that were used for the casters.
Raises the smoker up 18", which is perfect for me. Even comes with its own casters with brakes.
