  1. So as many of you know i have been contemplating the purchase of WSM 22.5 for about 8 months now... well i took the plunge this morning and purchased one from AimToFind.com... I searched for months for good pricing and the deal just seemed like it was now or never... Thanks to those of you who helped me with this decision... now i get to wait for it to come LOL!!!! I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas!

    I gotta tell you when you open that box, your not gonna believe how big that sucker is. I've had 8, 7 to 8 lb butts on mine, 4 on top 4 on the bottom. Your gonna just love that thing. 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!

    Yeah  I  stayed home from work to get mine. I did NOT want that sitting on the front door step.. Fed ex came around 1030 and it was assembled by noon. This thing is HUGE!!!!  The bottom heat shield was a lil bother with me by myself but with help it will go great!!

    When you get it you must go here  http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/index.html         has loads of tips and all sorts stuff. This guy is a weber guru hahah check him out.

    You will love this  thing. Its almost like cheating casue you never touch it as compared to my older chargriller
  16. Yeah i cant wait to get home... someone is there so i am not to worried... just jealous they will see it 1st LOL!!!

    Thanks for the link... I will take a look!
  17. 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,

  18. THANKS MAN! I really appreciate it!

    I just checked... it has been delivered!!!!!!! I am at work for another hour!!!!!!!!!!! I am ready to explode LOL!!!!!!!!!
  19. 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...
