WSM's are great easy smokers. You can get 12+hrs at 225*F pretty easily with the "minion" method.

Honestly, adding more coals isn't nearly as much of a pain as most make it out to be, either. Pick up the barrel, have dry towels/heat-resistant gloves and quickly dump out the basket/ash. Clay pots are great for that. Have your additional coals+wood ready in another clay pot, and a few lit briquettes/chunks ready to go in the chimney, and voila.
Happy to help; I know kettles best but an old 14" WSM was my first real smoker.Thanks Ham. I appreciate your input. Sounds easy enough.
I’ve never had that problem, and I live in Florida.
What he said. As long as you don't start it with to much fire. Kind of like learning to start your vehicle to get the ice off of it. You learn your smoker with each use. Each has a personality. You learn what it likes and more importantly what it doesn't lol.No. That isn't true. I run mine at 250°F regularly and 225°F is hardly a problem for it.
