Santa brought me a 22.5 " WSM for Christmas.  We had a snow day here in Nashville so I thought it would be the perfect time to try it out.  Our first contestant was a pork loin.  I rubbed it in a mix of dijon mustard, red wine, garlic and Dale's steak seasoning.  The taste test was pretty good.


Our next honored guest was a whole chicken.  I rubbed it in olive oil and lemon pepper.  I stuffed a can of coke in it and loaded that with more lemon pepper and a squirt of lemon juice.


After some samples, it was nap time.  Cooking is hard work.


Overall, the WSM was a pleasure to cook on.  I look forward to many more cooks with it.
Nice way to break in the new smoker.... looks like the dog gave it 4 paws up!

Having had my WSM for a little over a year now I can say they just keep doing their job, no muss, no fuss. Hard to beat for the $$.

NO NO NO you can't smoke the dog. They are all stingy and tough. but your yard bird and the pork loin looks pretty darn good thou. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
