I got the 18.5" wsm. It seems to have worked itself out..maybe the outer layer of coals were being lit? Up to 230 now. Love this grill so far.

I will add another thing. I use a redi check middle of road thermometer and a thermapin for meat. I have always believed the thermostats on grills are so wrong. Point in case temp on thermometer is 230 grill says 175

Well, now you know.... when the grill says 175, the actual temp is 230....

Hey 2kkinz,  Grill thermometers are notorious for being wrong,  Post some pictures for all to see

 

I guess Dave is not a Dallas fan

I was way excited yesterday. Today I can just enjoy both the games with a reassuring smile on my face.

I've been using my wsm I'm from Vancouver. It's been around 30 Fahrenheit here. I have to use little to no water in the water bowl or it won't get past 200 degrees. I find if I add a couple cups if boiling water to it every couple hours it works good. Then I can leave the vents 3/4 open

First check your temp gauge They are notorious for being off. Water boils at 212 º so you are not adding much heat. lots of people don't use a water pan.  Maybe a WSM guy will jump in and shed some light, I am an old stick burner.
