Are you the third guy on the right? Can't tell Wink

I just got my (new to me, mfg 1997) SM008 cleaned up and painted. Installed on a heavy duty file cabinet with 4 in casters (also had to clean and paint cabinet too).  I also put in a red LED indicator light so I know when the element is heating (camera makes it look white, you can see the red color in reflection on top).

Doing a first smoke doing a dismantled turkey, using 3 oz cherry wood.  I have a new thermometer to try also- Inkbird IBT-4XS that is bluetooth and can have 4 sensors.Irst Smoke-turkeySM008 on cartLED indicator

I recently found a powder-coated SM008 in decent condition, however the original powder-coated stand was really rusted out - to the point the door was no longer magnetic near the edge. I put together this stand using quasi-timber frame joints. This spring it will get a sanding and oil finish. I’ll also build a pull-out bin or two which will be hung on rails below the lower shelf.
