I'm trying something a little different this weekend. I nested a shichirin inside the Smokey Joe. As you can see the coals will be completely insulated with absolutely no wasted heat, and I'll be using a lot less charcoal too. I can still use the CI grate on top of the shichirin.
I also picked up a couple of sets of stainless steel chopsticks from a local Asian market..... all for under $5 total.
