Re: Help

Unless I am missing something (and that's possible most days), you got the 22.5, or the larger WSM?

Re: Help

I have a suggestion. Get a brain scan just to see if yours is still there.
I have one for you Larry. I have an 18" WSM. I need the larger one but don't want to buy one. Is there an extension kit that converts the 18" into a 22". Let me know. Thanks in advance. BTW, ever try show business?

Re: Help

I have measured it 5 times now and the box is near 36" wide. It says 22.5" on the side, I'll remeasure the box after I take the grill out just to be sure what size it is. I have ordered the 18.5" and 22.5" Cast Iron Grates just to be sure.

Re: Help

I got it all together and am now wondering where the water bowl goes? On top of the charcoal or on the top grate?

Re: Help

Okay, first cook is over and what a disaster. I filled the water bowl with water and charcoal and dumped a chimney of lit coal ontop. The freaking smoke and ash was unbelievable. Any hoot, I cooked chicken legs for 8 hours and they were still raw and the cooker was cold the whole cook. I also purchased a Maverick Thermometer. I hung the transmitter on the inside of the grate and the receiver continuously read 0000 and now it's black from smoke. The unit came with 2 wires, neither would fit into my computer or wall socket, so I have no idea what to do with them. I used the instructions to start the chimney, so I can't go back and read them. Any suggestions?

Yeah, stick them up your ass. Then look at the receiver and it will read "ASSHOLE"!

Re: Help

I'm baffled at all of this!
It goes from the bottom up;
small wire grate with the charcoal ring
Then the water bowl
Then a wire grate on top of that
then the top wire grate
and then you put the lid on

It really is unfair to all the people sitting at other tables here in McDonalds right now. They have no idea what I am laughing about.

Larry, you were supposed to close the top vent almost all the way. That keeps the smoke from escaping.

Cliff, I was wondering what that thing was on the lid? I thought it was a utensil holder? Go figure.
