    Ordered the WSM from Amazon. It qualified for prime and took about 5 days to get here. I was like a kid on Christmas tearing the box open and setting it up. Can't wait to fire this bad boy up and smoke a pork shoulder!

    Welcome to the club! I agree you'll love it! Now the real question is foil or no foil on that butt your talkin about?

    But it doesn't need to. 😄
    Especially with a new WSM. Let that baby roll on up to 300° and get that pork butt done in under 8 hours.
    No matter what, enjoy your new cooker. That's a nice new toy!!
     
  9.  Gotta love a WSM. Now its time to get it dirty. Words of warning: the dial therm on that WSM is very likely to be inaccurate, and also it will take about 5 smokes to get it to run smoothly and seal up good. good luck with it...

    Congrats! I love my WSM! just an FYI that things runs hot esp when brand new and my thermometer isn't very accurate so i suggest a prob at the grate level (it has a port for this).

    Happy Smoking,

    Fired her up this morning. I've got a batch of sqwibs (sp?) Mac and cheese going, along with about a 4 lb pork butt. The temps are a little tricky to figure out at first but it's rolling along now at 230°. It's hard to let it do its thing after making an adjustment. Gotta keep telling myself to stop fiddling with it hahaha.
     
  12. Looking good! Let us know how it turns out.

    Here's the mac and cheese. About to take it to the wife for her employee picnic.
    Obviously the smaller pan is for those confused souls who don't eat bacon.

    A baconless life, is no life at all. IT of the pork is up to 150°. And hey, it's well past noon so time for some liquid refreshment:

    Doesn't look as pretty as some of the other ones I've seen on the site, but the flavor is good.

    Looks pretty darn good to me.  Once you pull it and add in all the crispy bit, it should be delish.
