On the WSM if I wanted to maintain 100-150 degrees could it be done?

 

The charcoal savings would be great. I have to feed my Cook n Cajun every 3 minutes! I use that much coal in a 6-8 hour smoke. Any UDS users that can chime in?

 

I'm also surprised that these are all vertical uprights. I was expecting people to be all over the map as far as style go. I looked into all four smokers and can see great points about all of them. Now to make a decision...

 

Wife thinks the electric would be the most expensive to run and as far as gas I have concerns that it will effect the taste of the meat.

You won't taste gas i promise.Just smokey goodness.A good thing about a gas smoker is you can take it camping and tailgating unlike a watt burner.41.gif GOOD LUCK.

So my wife saw me rereading this thread and asked me if a new smoker was what I really wanted. She suggested we look at Craigslist. Today we picked up a WSM for $175 brand new in the box as my Christmas present from her.. I'm stoked, I checked it out and it's all there and ready to go. However...she won't let me have it until Christmas. But hey I am not complaining. She already bought an 18lb turkey that she wants me to smoke in it. What a woman!

Congrats on the new smoker    Tell your wife that if she wants smoked Turkey for Christmas you need to cure the smoker and do a bit of practicing!

You will love your WSM is it a 18 or 22.5?  I have had a few different smokers and Just love my WSM 22.5 I just load with fuel and walk away many times not even looking back for a few hours, Holds temp great!!!

The Turkey will be for New Years Eve. I will start reading up now however I have smoked a turkey on my old Brinkman. I will "take ownership" Christmas eve and I may assemble it and cure it over night. It's the 18 incher. I'm surprised how much bigger it is compared to my Brinkman.

 

Any threads or reading material you can recommend would be appreciated. (Best way to Cure, Minion method, Mods, etc)

 

Thanks for everyones help again!
