Grats! Nice shiny new toy!

One side note... you don't have to season a WSM, they are ready to go right out of the box. Seasoning is for smokers made with exposed steel and/or iron, the seasoning coats it and protects it. Since the WSM are all enameled and chromed racks you are good to go!

But if you want to do a test burn to get a feel for temp. control then go for it, never hurts to get a feel for a new smoker before putting the meat on it. Just make sure to catch the temps on the way up, because once they get away from you it will take a looooong time before you can get them to come back down.
 
 
Congrats!!!!!!!!!

Yeah... I was the same way.... just FYI you test burn will go a looooong time if you fill the ring all the way. I would just do half a ring, should burn out in 6-10 hrs. depending on your weather.
 
I am in upstate n.y so the weather is not the warmest this time of year. weather calls for 28 degrees on Friday do you think i should run a full basket or half?
 
Welcome to SMF - great looking new smoker and controller - looking forward to some great qview from you

For your test burn I would run the water pan empty with a half load of the ring. In cold weather I find leaving the water pan empty is the way to go. Just make sure to still foil the water pan to catch drippings and make clean up easier.
