WSM..........unreal!

I just had to post this. I fired my WSM up at about noon Sunday.
I cooked 3 chuck roasts with a 3/4 full ring of KF.
The chucks came off at about 7pm. I shut the vents top & bottom.
I've been having a few "problems" with the flimsy little tin foil door that came with the cooker.
I woke up the next day for work and planned on taking the cooker apart and putting it away. As I went outside this morning I noticed the flimsy littl tin foil door had fallen off. The cooker was flaming like all get out I put the door back on and went to work. 10 hrs. later I arrived home. AGAIN I "attempted" to put the cooker away.
Even after sitting all day with the vents clossed 100% I burned my hand trying to get it apart. I have no pics but my daughter and I roasted a marshmallow on it 34 hrs after I fired it up.
This piece of cooking equipment still amazes me to this day!

Why do you guys "put them away"? I just keep mine covered and it does well. Just a question.

Mine has it's own little spot in the garage next to my Harley. I wouldn't want it to get run over by some errant vehicle if I left it in the driveway.

That is why I put wheels on mine, so I could ROLL it into the corner.

Your WSM should be air-tight enough that it will go out when you shut all the vents. If it's still hot after that many hours, you probably have an air leak somewhere. I know that when I shut mine down, it goes out relatively quickly. Definitely I can put the cover on by the next morning.

I was amazed at how much unburned lump I had left over after my last cook. It is being recycled ofcourse.

Mines out after a few hours. Always seem to have plenty of coals left for another cook.
