First cook on my new toy

I had it put together by Saturday night, of course, but it wasn't going to cook much in the living room. So I took it outside today and loaded it up.


By the time I got done calibrating temps and such, it was too late to start a long cook. So I decided to cook a Griff Loaf in honor of Griff's great Xmas present.


The kettle got demoted to remote thermometer transmitter holder


I didn't have any of the problems others have reported with a new WSM running hot.

More pix when the loaf is done.

Re: First cook on my new toy

Ahh,'s that's the trick to keeping the temp down. Do you first cook in the winter snow.
Anyone have any problems with leaving a Weber kettle or WSM out in the winter?
I've always stowed mine away in the garage.

Re: First cook on my new toy

Looks like an excellent proposition. Would try to make a Griff Loaf but dont have access to seals, walri, bears and beavers etc.

Re: First cook on my new toy

The loaf looks great. All of my smokers, grills, etc stay outside all winter and are used all winter. I just use the Weber covers when they are not in use.
