Purchased a new WSM yesterday from my local grill shop. Was trying to wait till today to fire it up for the first time but I just couldn't stand the wait any longer. I assembled it yesterday evening and thought I would try the "Fatty" everyone talks about. Figured that would cook quickly enough. I have to say, all of you guys were right. The WSM is amazing. Not once did I have to add charcoal to the fire. My temps hovered around 220 - 265. I really have to do some reading on how to best control the temp on this unit, but it was much easier to control then my old sidebox smoker. The Fatty's came out perfect and were delicious. If anyone has some suggestions on ways to control temp on the WSM I am all ears. Thank you in advance.
