1st WSM Mods

A couple of pics of the mods to my WSM.

Closed position indicator for door.


Wood handles (from my retired ECB), sanded and stained. Metal was sanded, painted with High Temp paint and clear coated.


Clay pot base: 36cm/14.25 inches


Perfect fit in original water pan


Doesn't disturb the bottom grate at all


I'll foil the clay bottom before I use it.

water in it?

I'm using Maverick ET-73 for the top, bottom grates and meat. Haven't cooked with it yet. Tried sand in my ECB and hated it. I'll use just the pot with the WSM.

Nice mods.

Please make sure to post how you like the clay pot.

I hated the sand in my black beauties.

Sand does not make your temps hotter if you control the temps on the way up. Sand can only radiate the heat you put under it, it will not make your pit hotter. Sand helps maitain and baffle the heat from the food.



I really like the clay pot idea!

I think part of my message got cut off?? I have a heck of a time with controlling them on the way up and then trying to get them back down.
With the water it is never an issue so I figure if I don't have to fight it then I will just use water.

I think Brian is right I really need to study more !!!

I had been told about the clay pot a few times and I didn't know anyone had done it so I am interested to see the results
