Yesterday I assembled my WSM and I am looking forward to the first of many great (I hope) smokes with it. I have a few questions and comments though...
- I'm not crazy about the door at all.... I did tweak it a little for a better fit but still... Weber, are you guys serious???
- Not too sure about the fire ring either, it seems kind of flimsy also and I'm wondering how long it will keep it's shape.
- Not sure how the heat will affect the brackets if at all, but for now the upper grate fits pretty good and shouldn't give me any problems, but we'll see...
- I'm planning on using the water pan w/water and I'm wondering if there's any difference between the finished products from the lower and upper grates, do to the bottom grate sitting right above the water pan.
I will probably do the temp probe and charcoal grate mods before I start using it. Is there anything else I should know of or do to it before my first smoke? Thanks
