My new 18.5" WSM arrived today! I ordered it from AimToFind.com on Tuesday and it made it here in 2 days. It was $239.99 there, the best price I could find this week. Based on a lot of research, the 18.5" should be perfect for me. If I have a very large group I plan to cook 2 days in a row. That should not happen very often. I plan to do my first smoke Saturday. As I am new to smoking, this will be my first smoke ever, I am considering a pork butt; what do you think for just starting out? I am happy, happy, happy!!!
