I sure have bugged several of you. You came through for me--answered all my questions---THANKS A MILLION! I bit the bullet and got a WSM18 today, My electric smoker sux. I am too old and broke for what I wanted--a stick burning Lang. They are number one (IMO) for taste. Taste is what I wanted. Not ease of use or any of that stuff. BUT--the old man gave up. Don't get me wrong- the WSM is a very good smoker. Maybe one day SmokinAl will adopt me and I can use his Lang. I tried to buy another stick burner- an Old Country. Their workmanship has gone to pot! I saw 6 of them (Academy Sports even took me nto their back supply room) with bad welds..3 of them had crooked doors, one had a crooked wheel. Evidently their workmanship has gone to pot(IMO). Again--you folks are the greatest. I sure appreciate the help from everyone. Y'all are the best !!!!!!!!!!!!! Charlie-Buford, GA

I'm getting ready for work - so quick answers.

No - seasoning isn't necessary. Just wash the grates.

No - I don't use water for pork or beef. Wrap the bowl with aluminum foil and use it as a diffuser. I like to smoke both of those meats in the 250* range.
