I’ve recently started using a wsm 22. I came from a Traeger 22 and using my Weber kettle as a smoker which I will say once figured out makes some good bbq. Currently the only mods I have on the wsm are a Hunsaker floating hinge and the the Hunsaker firebox with vortex. Yeah I should have bought a Hunsaker after the money I’ve thrown into it. I also have the Cajun bandit door but have yet to put it on. I don’t use the water pan since I have the diffuser and have been able to keep the wsm at 225 and up to 300 for cooks I’ve done. I’m currently looking at a gateway drum. I love the look and the bbq I’ve seen it turn out but is the wsm not kinda their with the gateway as far as what type of smoker they are? I’ve got my eye on an offset to cook more traditional slow cooks due to the spike in temps I get every time I open the wsm to spritz my food. Opinions, thoughts? The offset I’m looking at is the asf smaller offset. I can probably fit 2 small briskets or 4 butts on it.
