I just bought a new WSM, and the day it was to be delivered I went to Lowes and bought some lump charcoal.
To my surprise the manual supplied with the smoker said they did not recommend lump charcoal in their smoker.
So I emailed them and asked why. Their response was short and sweet. It burns to hot!!
So I'm thinking, it would either damage the smoker (which I doubt) or because of the design of the smoker it would be difficult to maintain a lower temp while cooking. Can anyone offer anything further. Maybe your own experience's.
I would also like to find the mod to seal the door and lid. I read a post with pictures, but didn't find a parts list to do the job and where to find the parts.
