Way to go!

Inspect all the parts carefully for damage before assembling. Contact Weber to get free replacements.

You'll be glad you got both the WSM and the Maverick. With their help maintaining cooking temps and determining done-time, you can concentrate on finding your favorite rubs and sauces.

Will this be your first smoker purchase?
I had a Brinkman that I used about 5 times and put out for the trash.
I'll go with the WSM.
Thanks guys
I did the same thing with mine! Buy the WSM! Woodman

You might want to do a trial run to get used to it.
Good luck!
