How do you turn a WSM off?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

On my first smoke I closed all vents when finished. The smoker cooled down but later I noticed water dripping through a bottom vent. Water was condensing all over the unit and was running down into the charcoal pan.

 

Today I only closed the bottom vents and the smoker is not stopping. So, how are you all turning these off?

I just shut them all down - no air = no fire.

Turn the kanoodervalve to the left.

Do you get water dripping down into the ashes?

Shut all the vents. A WSM isn't air tight so if the top vent is open, it can still draft. Even with all of them shut, it can still take a while to die down. There is quite a bit of condensation in most smokers, even with no water in the water pan. Nothing to worry about.
