Weber 731001 Smokey Mountain Cooker 22.5-Inch Smoker

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So far, my main goto smoker is my masterbuilt smoker.  My only flaw for this smoker is, the temperature is limited to 275.  Actually, that's not bad for a smoker because I normally smoke btwn 225 - 250.  But I've been kicking the idea of the Weber Smokey Mtn Cooker for a bit. 

 

My only concern is controlling and keeping the heat constant.  If I'm doing a porkbutt which takes on average 12 hours, how do I keep the temperature consistent on a smoker, such as the Smoker Mountain?

 

And, is there a limit to the min and max temperature of this unit? I'm interested because I would want to coook a chicken but I prefer chickens to be cooked at 300 - 350 degrees?

 

And, is is really possible to keep a charcoal grill/smoker burning for 12 plus hours or are you constantly adding fuel?

 

Thanks!

The WSM is a great cooker and if you use the Minion method you can get long smokes without any issues.

 

I bought a Stoker but have not had time to practice with it so I'm doing it Minion method and running just fine.

 

I compete with mine too and wouldn't keep them if they weren't worth it.
