    Ever since I had a WSM as a loaner provided by WSM guru G. Wiviott, I wanted one. My mom stepped up and bought me one about 5 weeks ago, and I have had this 18.5" beauty sitting in the garage unused until today.

    I am a rib eating freak, and took a few weeks off of eating ribs. Today I have 2 slabs of BB's with my own rub, as well as some leftover kilbasa, and some ABT's stuffed with pepperjack cheese and kilbasa. Should be a good smoke.

    As for the WSM, it is working like a champ, kicking out the TBS, and holding 225 degrees in windy, snowy weather.

    thanks SC

    About 30 mins from taking the kilbasa off. This thing just holds temp even in 30 mph winds & snow, I am holding @ 225 without any tinkering.

    Using my GOSM as my wind break..[​IMG]

    I wonder if the Blue Moon is sold in Kansas? Looks like a neat bottle for my collection...

    The ABT's have kilbasa, and pepperjack cheese as the filling.

    thanks tom,

    moved fromECB, to a cheepo offset, to a GOSM, and now to a WSM. Just keep learnin, and smokin'..

    High wind and snow is really delaying things, Maybe 20 minutes away from pulling the ribs and ABT's off. These 30 mph winds ae killing my dinner plans right now. Luckily got lots of tequila and beer to bide the time.

    I know what you mean about the wind. I smoked ribs last night and the wind kicked my butt. The wind would kick up, the coals would get hot and the temps would spike up. I'd cut down the intakes, the wind would die off, and the temps drop off. I never spent so much time tending the temp as I did last night. But it was all worth it when I tasted those ribs and saw my wife's face when she tasted them.

    Thanks for posting when you have problems as well. It helps us rookies get through the tough times.

    thnaks tony & Cody,

    very nice xmas meal.

    the high winds were a small challenge, but I was in no hurry. The WSM held 225 without any vent tinkering at all(I was shooting for 235-240). BB's took about 5 hours, no foil, and glazed them while they rested.

    Snowing today, debating going into Chicago for lunch, or running over the the butcher for some more pork to smoke. [​IMG]

    Nice plate Jim. It has all the major food groups...

    The Rib Group,
    The Bacon Wrapped Vegetable Group
    The Sausage Group
    The Mac and Cheese Group

    and I'm sure somewhere, The Beer Group.

    I swear by following a balanced diet too!

    Good looking smoke and congrats on the new WSM.
