Hey all! I am new to the smoking game but have always loved the flavors and cuts all my life, so decided to do it myself.

I recently bought a WSM 18.5" and have sibce been loving it. I live in Louisville, KY and looking forward to learning and contributing to the community!

It's been great so far! I smoked 3 turkeys in it over thanksgiving and had no issues hold the temp at 350. I bought a second internal probe for the inside just for better temp regulating

That was just the temp recommended from somewhere my biggest concern was getting it cooked through without drying out. They turned out to be incredible and had a good smoke flavor. I may try other methods in the future after reading up on it a bit more
