Will be getting my WSM this weak.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Through a contact I have in Weber, I am getting a FREE 18" WSM. I can't wait!
For my first try I was thinking about some spare ribs and chicken. Not looking for anything fancy. If you have any ideas let me know, I have been lurking here for awhile now so I have a few ideas. Thanks!

Welcome and congrats! If Weber wants to give more out for some reason, (like a totally biased good review) tell your contact he can count on me!

It is common to get the brinkman waterpan- as it holds alot more water and is lot less prone to accidently spilling.I use the brinkman water pan on longer smokes - you dont have to refill it.I still use the shallower original pan on chicken etc.I have smoke grilled a 23 pound thanksgiving turkey at 350 before as well.Good luck-i own 3- 18" and a 22".I use them in comps.

Looking forward to hearing more from you on this forum. And be sure to post pictures of your work. There's a little saying around here that goes something like...no picutes, it never happened.

But seriously, enjoy the site, tons of good info and some darned nice people always willing to help.

I did my first smoke on Sat. and turn out great. I did 4 racks of baby backs. Sorry, no pics. I was getting crunched for time because I had to pack up the rids and take them to my brother-in-laws for dinner. My father in law told me the day before that you had to boil rids before you cooked them because thats what he has always done. Man did he eat his words and my ribs! I used the method from the Virtual Weber Bullet forum, but had to add some coal halfway through. At first i had a hard time getting temps above 200 but it was all good. I used 3 chunks of hickory for smoke wood. I wil be try some chicken later this week.

Welcome pineknot, congrats on the new WSM. I really think you should send it to me as they are prone to make you gain weight. At my age I am way past trying to impress people with my looks. Just trying to help bro.icon_mrgreen.gif
