The Cajun Bandit 18.5″ Stacker Combo Kit has been precision engineered to increase the capacity of your Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5″ Smoker while maintaining usability and increasing overall user satisfaction. Crafted from premium stainless steel and careful attention to detail, the typical short comings of a Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker are addressed in three target areas with this product: The charcoal coal ring, the door, and the overall lack of cooking area found in the Weber 18.5″ Smokey Mountain Smoker. You can now achieve the full capacity of your smoker without the fear of poor quality or performance.
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.
The rigid 10″ tall stainless steel heavy gauge ring increases the overall cooking area in the Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker by 50%. The increase in interior cooking volume is executed through the utility of a proprietary stacker ring standing a full 10″ tall with an additional grate location. Featuring a continuous rim, the strength and seal of this ring is assured without the fear of additional smoke or heat loss associated with other products on the market. Complete with premium grate/rack supports and accompanying hardware a solid cooking surface is achieved. Chrome plated steel rack provides for easy clean-up and durability.
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. The door that comes in this kit will fit both the 2008 and older and the 2009 and newer models.
All of the doors we sell are fit to a Weber WSM cylinder, but from time to time the door may have slight gaps on the top right or left side, you just have to shape the door to fit your cylinder, it may not look like it but there are slight differences from cylinder to cylinder, some receive the door and it fits like a glove, and others have found that it has to be shaped a little, it’s really simple, just bend it around a radius about the size of a gallon paint can if it’s the 18.5″ or about the size of a five gallon bucket if it’s the 22.5″, until the gap closes on the cylinder, putting more emphasis on the side with the gap.
