    Seen a post on here awhile back about Weber coming out with a smaller version of the WSM.  Not sure if anyone else posted about this yet but seen the 14.5 advertised in the paper today.

  2. Saw it in the Walmart ad this morning too.

    Just saw a advertisement here in Finland, it is on sale for a limited time 100euros/137$.

    Nobody has this ? It would be nice to hear how it performs, i assume its better than Mini wsm.
  5. Yup, I bought one back in January.
    It performs excellent, just like the other WSMs.

    Have you measured temps on bottom vs top grate ? I guess its eco-friendly what it comes to briquettes or lump.
  7. As you'd probably expect, there can be a small temperature difference between the top and bottom grate but not enough to make an appreciable difference.

    Yes i did, but it wont get hot enough to burn pork or poultry on the bottom grate ? This is only sale on sunday, i probably get it since the price is very affordable.
  9. You need to control the temperature to avoid burning.
    Not a big deal, the WSMs are known for holding temperature well.

    Bought one at christmas. Nobody in sw colorado carries them so I got it on amazon for $199 free shipping. Holds heat excellent for several hours. Flavor is much better than my electric which I use for sausage.

    These were sold immedieatly didnt get one! I will keep looking maybe i find used 18.5 or 22.5 for good price.
  15. I'm getting ready to press the button on this one this weekend!!!!! Do they require a test burn or some kind of seasoning prior to loading up meat?
  16. No they don't, however until they are seasoned they will run a bit hot and will leak just a bit.
  17. I'm thinking about a WSM later myself, but I'm probably going to get the 22.5. Gonna save a little at a time until I can get it.
  18. Watch Craigs List, they have them off and on, usually for a good price.

    The 14.5 is sweet. I Dont feel bad using the small one when i just want to do one rack of ribs chicken or a tri tip. Dont have to waste so much fuel.
