Wow. I think that's a little overkill.

Not sure if I'd spend a hundred bucks on a door!  But interesting to say the least.
Too many grills and too little time! Looking for a  BLUE GENESIS GASSER! Will pay a bounty!

I agree. Maybe a bit overkill. Still cool though!
Looking for colored 18's and SJ's.

I wouldn't put it on a wsm. But it would be sweet on a UDS.

Kind of agree.  Interesting concept.  A little high priced.  I'll with my Cajun Bandits.

For function, probably nice.
For looks, I wouldn't put it on a WSM.

I think it is a neat idea. I rarely if ever use the door on my 18. I never refill the water pan and normally do a good job guessing correct charcoal amount and don't need to refuel.

I wonder if it will change the way to cooker cooks. If it will change airflow being less streamlined.

I've logged more hours with 18" WSMs than anyone I know and I'm not sure I ever used the door even once.  I found the door the weakest part of the whole system.

What size pot is this? How big around, how deep?  What name brand ?  This looks pretty sweet, thanks.

Interesting... but my initial opinion is... HELL NO.  I rarely open my smokers except to place or pull the food.  If i need to refuel I usually just lift the body off so I can organize ideally.
