I personally like making jerky so a good jerky gun.  Not one of those cheap plastic ones but a good metal one.  Also works great when you get into sausage making for brealkfest links.

Ever since I started making ragweed's ground jerky rounds I haven't pulled out my jerky gun and doubt I will for a long time. :)

I would also add a larger water pan, like 9x9x2, and a foil wrapped brick to the stage 1 list.

a foil wrapped brick

What is the foil wrapped brick for? Does it go in the smoker?

If you don't have the 2nd element or the 900 watt element, a way to keep heat is to put a brick (most, bit not all, foil wrap it) on the floor next to the bowl. It acts like a heat sink and keeps up the temp when you open the door. It is not as good as a bigger or dual element but it helps. Some even heat the brick in an oven prior to putting it into the cabinet.

I see the price for the Bisquette Savers have come down quite a bit. 

Now they are only $16.45 a set on ebay.

They were damn near $30/set when I bought mine, years ago.  They are still one accessory, I use on every smoke though, and well worth the cost.

When getting started I found that the only thing extra that was needed was a good remote thermometer and a table on which to place the unit.  A kitchen pot holder worked well for taking racks out of the smoker, you should get used to the machine as delivered before going crazy with mods.  After a few cooks, and reading here, you'll know what else YOU will need.  the thermomenter is an absolute must.

clean up is involved with smoking also  so a good tub and a stiff brush come in very handy

After hearing of a few grease fires in Bradleys, a good fire extinguisher would be a great accessory. Just for peace of mind when things don't go as planned.

I had a buddy that had a Cajun injector catch on fire so that may not be a bad idea.
