    snow/cold ..its a relative thing

    And here in S.E. Wisconsin I hoping for more snow.  I feel that if it si going to be cold, it might as well snow.  This freezing rail / ice is just crap!

    Cheese dip

    sounds a lot like the beer dip I make, but has less cream cheese, frozen corn, and green onion - if I can find them.  I also tend to use a lager beer, or an ale, but that is because I don't like dark beers.

    Maybe a simple question, I don't know...

    Just jam it in the grommet and it will read between both grates.  Find out what temp at that location work for your style of cooking and go with that.   I think we all get too hung up on the perfect location and the perfect tempature.  It doesn't matter what my probe reads, or where I have it...

    Wood chips or lumps ?

    Chunks. I run a WSM 22 and chunks are what you want.  I have been know to use splits, and they work too, but chunks are easier.

    Need some advice on "when" to smoke some pulled pork for Friday

    Two words - Finishing sauce.    But only add it the day that you are going to serve it.  Too soon and the acids can make mush.

    Went all in on the mailbox mod.

    It should be ok, but I would want to run a hunk of thin aluminum the wood and where the mailbox sits.  Just a little bit more "thermal protection."   Be sure to seal that wood before outdoor use.

    Designing my grill/smoker - Analysis Paralysis

    This is purely from a designer / builder stand point, but it applies to most projects, 1. Gather ideas and put them on paper.   - It looks like you have done this. 2. Make a semi - scale drawing to see if it will all fit like you think it will. 3. Start to source parts.  You might have a door...

    Winter Smoking Help

    It almost sounds like wind was stealing your heat.  Coming in the bottom and blowing out the top.  You could try and make a wind block by wrapping foil between the legs?

    Winter Smoke Temps?!?!?!?

    Typically the bigger problem is getting gasses down to temp, not up!   What do your flames look like?  Big and blue like on a stove or bunson burner, or small or yellow?

    Why is my Turkey Black?

    IF you can wipe (some) of the black off, then it is soot.   I'd try different pellets - make sure all the old pellets are out of there. Even if your grill says 200 and it is cooking at 350 it shouldn't burn a bird to black in an hour. Rather that goofing up a full bird - test with boneless...

    Got a new custom Maverick Meat Probe in the works.... your prayers will be answered!

    This sounds great!  While I don't have a maverick, I do have a heatermeter which has full graphing and can run off of maverick probes.  Currently I use a thermoworks thermocouple and replacement probes.  I could run graphs of multiple probes at the same time.

    How much to make for a party

    With extra food "buffet style" you should look at 1/3 lb pre-cook weight per person.  1/2 per person if you want a lot of leftover, or your are feeding a rugby team.

    Butterball Boneless Turkey Roast Advice/Experience?

    Checking the Butterball website, they recommend using a crock pot and cooking it for like 9 hours!  It should cook like a very dense roast, so I would go on the lighter side of smoke, if you are going to run smoke the full time.  I'd head for more cherry and pecan over the hickory as that much...

    Cold Smoke Problems !!

    I think you may have made your smokehouse too well.  I think it might be too tight. The "olden days" smoke houses were not made poorly, they were made drafty on purpose.  You might need some lower vents in your smoke house as well.  A row of holes at the bottom of the door, that can be blocked...

    Set your fryer on a non- combustable surface a good distance from anything you don't want to catch on fire, like your house, barn, shed, dog, wife, fence, whatever.  Then place your turkey in the smoker where it belongs.

    Raspberry Pi Fan/Temp controller questions...

    Yes they work, and work well.  It keeps my WSM a more stable than my Aubern did as the fan is varrible. I have not used it on 275 gallon smoker.   You don't want to use a fan, you want to use a blower.  There is a difference.

    STURDY canopy needed

    I have 2 shelter logic 10x20s.  I don't have the screens for them as I use them for my blacksmithing demos.  They are not the prettiest of things, nor are they the easiest to put up, but I do know that last year they were one of two tents that survived a summer storm with zero damage, this...

    Looking for suggestions for first smoker

    A grill is a grill, and a smoker is a smoker.  Two different tool for a similar, yet different job.  Can you drag race a dump truck? Sure, but a funny car will do it better. There is nothing wrong with making ribs and smoking a butt on a Weber kettle.  Many guys do.  I did for years. But a WSM...

    Anyone use the Auber BL-6.5 blower on their WSM? I have questions!

    I bet if you go with a standard minion method vs a snake method you will get better results.  I run an Aubers set up on my WSM ( granted, not that one ) and have enjoyed it very much as it works quite well. remember that the shutter is gravity assisted, so don't put the fan in wrong.  Also you...
