    My wife surprised me with a WSM as an anniversary gift last night. I had mentioned the Char Broil Double Chef to her as a more cost effective alternative a couple months ago, but she said I deserve the best.

    Do I need to season this, or is it good to go out of the box (which I haven't even opened yet)?

    congrats on the new WSM. Now you can give here some good food as a thank you. Qview of course. I didn't season mine as I couldn't find anywhere to say you should. The instructions say it may cook a little hot the first time as the inside is so shiny but i just started cooking and no problems.

    nope no seasoning needed, good to go right out o' the box.

    Wrong charcoal grate in the box. Called Weber customer service, and one will be sent out next day to me this week.

    First smoke will have to wait until next weekend.

    Congrats, your wife has wisdom and good taste. It's all good my friend.
  18. You're going to LOVE your WSM. I named mine Delicious. I'd recommend a book by Gary Viviot called Low & Slow - it's basically written specifically for WSMs. Great to see another Chicagoan with a WSM. I'm on the NW side in Albany Park.

    First smoke on Sunday...

    Did a pork butt, turkey breast (for chili), spares and tips, and some sausage.

    I had already pulled the turkey and pork off the cooker before I took this photo.

    11 hours of cook time off of one load of Royal Oak lump and apple wood chunks. I love this thing.
