Let the addiction continue biggrin.gif . Picked up a WSM today. Got a pretty good deal on it so home it came. I was able to cook on one at a smoking class last weekend and was pretty impressed. I've been wanting something portable (my offset weighs 350lbs) and also something to cook on over the winter. The only covered area I have is the front porch and I'm not dragging the Brinkman up there. So............ who has one and did you do any mods to it? I know of the WSM site but wanted to ask around "home" before I spend too much time over there. Thanks.

I know smokebuzz and Ron50 have the wsm, and I'm sure there are others.... buzz posted a thread tonight about the soon-to-be-released 22 1/2" wsm.....looks an awful lot like a well built drum smoker......biggrin.gif

I have a clay flower pot base over my water pan.......serves the same purpose as sand in the pan and my door is pretty well sealed shut to stop the air leaks. But I would say with a wsm you can pretty much run with no mods at all and be just fine.

Thanks Joe, it looks like the only thing I really need is a thermo. Do you like the flower pot better than using water? Did you notice a difference in how the wsm cooks?

Good choice on pick of a smoker NorthWET. I've had one for about a year, and after using the water pan with water about 4 times, and having problems getting rid of the greasy mess in the pan I switched over to a flower pot bottom in the stock pan with a double layer of foil over that. NO CLEANUP!! And temp control is just as good.
For mods, I put a nice 3" thermo in the lid, 2 BBQ Guru eyelets in the sides for probes and replaced the lower cooking grate with a new top grate. Fits better. This was out of necessity as the original grate either disappeared or somehow shrank in diameter so it no longer fit on the supports. I know that is not possible, but it happened. By the way the WSM is a great cooker, it's just so easy to use. Have fun!
