Woot... way to go! The WSM is a great smoker, you will really like it.

 

The best thing to do is read the forums here and you will find lots of examples for how to start and use your WSM. The basic use is to fill the charcoal ring with unlit charcoal and then dump a half chimney of lit charcoal on top of that. Then toss in fist sized chunks of wood in every hour or so for the smoke.

 

Top vent will always stay 100% open, and you use the three bottom vents to controll your temps. The smoker will run hot for the first few smokes, so remember to damp down the bottom vents early so the temps don't get away from you.

Start your brisket at night - usually between midnight and and 2 AM, then put your ribs on about 4 or 5 hrs. before dinner time. Put your brisket on the bottom rack, by the time you put the ribs on you will either have foiled your brisket or you can just loosly drape a piece of foil over it to protect it from raw pork drippings. But it's all going to be cooking at over 200° for several hours so any bugs will be cooked to death.
