    So today is the maiden voyage of my new WSM 22", decided to break it in with a couple of chuckies and a couple of corned beef points I had in the fridge.

    I have to say getting the WSM set up and up to temp was very easy, and it has been holding 250° steady with no fuss for about 3 hrs.

    I will have some Qview up in a bit. [​IMG]

    OK.. here is the Qview!

    The smoke started out with a "traffic" jam infront of the sliding door to the patio..... apperantly there was a log in the middle of the road... heh-heh.


    Got the WSM fired up and put together... starting the TBS and waiting for temps to come up.


    Decided to break in the new smoker with a couple of chuckies and a couple of corned beef left over from St. Patti's day.


    Here they are at about 3 hrs. Chuckies were at 165 and ready to foil, Corned beef tips were at 180° so I pulled and foiled them and put in the cooler.


    Corned beef was rubbed with a mix of coars cracked pepper, garlic powder, and the spice packet that comes with them - they are sliced and vacuumed packed for sandwiches.... yummmy!


    Pulled the chuckies at 210°, foiled and into the cooler for 2 hrs., then shredded.




    And for dinner we did some chuckie, oven roasted baby red potato's, and a salad.... very tasty!

    Great looking job on the break in! I'm sure the place mat moved after the resting period.

  11. Thats a nice looking smoke ring on the chuckies for only 3 hours of smoking. I bet they tasted great. Was the corn beef pre cooked as leftovers, or raw?

    That meal looks great.

    Also, there is something about a brand new weber (whether WSM, Kettle, or even propane) that just steals the show. They're really good looking cookers.
