Excuse my ignorance, what type/brand of cooker is it. Looks like a Big Black Egg:) Nice setup either way.

Nice looking set up. If i can make a suggestion, i would place a 24x24 patio stone underneath that cooker. I know for a fact it get pretty hot in the bottom of the unit, even to the point that the wood can & will smolder from the heat.

Just curious, wouldn't you need some metal flashing around the wood edges as well?

Only if the cooker comes in contact with the wood as it does on the bottom.
