I don't know what you got going on, but I bet you don't wait 1 or 2 weeks to play with it.  Congrats man, it's a great smoker!

Steve,

Congratulations on your purchase, I think you will be very happy with the WSM 22.5.  I have a friend who has one and he loves that thing.  I think he rubs and wipes on the WSM about as much as he smokes on it.  He treats it like a baby, but he can smoke some of the best meat I have ever ate.   Again Congratulations on your big decision and with hopes you will use it for many many years.

Your SMF Friend,

Barry

Man oh man! it came yesterday while i was at work... I put it together last night and immediately fell in love! I cant wait to fire this thing up... I do have to make a few purchases though (charcoal, wood chunks [my current smoker takes chips], & a chimney starter for my charcoal)... I think I will be doing Brisket, BBs, & Beef Short Ribs for the maiden smoke... but that may change... I might not be able to fire it yup until next weekend, but hope to do it much sooner... Will post a Qview when i do...
