    This is my second smoke on this smoker. The first being some chicken thighs that turned out pretty good (I prefer pork or beef). I'm 4.5 hours in and at 170 internal temp with the smoker keeping fairly steady at 245. I would usually foil at this time, but think I'll ride this one out without doing that. I'm curious to see how long a basket of charcoal will last in this thing using the minion method. More pics to come as the day goes on.

    Around 8 hours into the cook. One at 190 degrees and the other at 170. Interesting to see two pieces of meat similar in size be that far apart in temperature.

    After 13 hours, I closed all the vents and let the charcoal go out. There is some left to use with the next smoke . I never imagined a charcoal smoker could be so easy to use.

    Looks really good, how are you liking the WSM. What size did you get as I am debating on getting one and not sure what size to get yet.

  9. Do those caster wheels come on the new WSM's or did you add those? I was thinking that would be a nice feature.

    I got the 22.5 and am liking it quite a bit. I figured bigger is better, so got the large one. 
    I added the wheels when I fist assembled the WSM. I think the materials cost $16 to do it and is handy if you need to move it around.

    The 8 hour picture was when they were only partially done. One took 11 hours and the other 12.5.

    What smokers have you used before? I haven't used a WSM before but I really do love the end result of using my old charcoal grill as a smoker. Was it pretty Easy to regulate temperature with this only being your second smoke?

    I have a camp chef smoke vault vertical gas as well.

    I was able to keep a 20 degree range for roughly 13 hours with maybe 6 or 7 minor adjustments to vents. That includes a suprise rain shower that lasted around 20 minutes. I did do allot of reading on how to manage the fire for that long though. It really isn't hard to do the setup. Overall seems to be pretty easy to use.

    Right on. Thanks for the info. Pretty soon here I am going to have to start worrying about smoking in cold weather. I did most of my smokig in AZ and recentl moved to WI. After I got my smoker for Xmas I was lucky it was electric.

    You have to give a little more of you secret before anyone can judge whether it is great.
