Going to get a WSM!

So far, in the last three weeks I've cooked 12 butts, 12 racks of spares and 12 racks of baby backs. Not to mention the 1200 quarts of stew I helped cook 4 weeks ago. The Q was cooked on my Lang 60 and while some were better then others, they were all good.

The Lang is a little too big to do an evening cook with just a few friends so I'm going to supplement my equimpent with a WSM so I can experiment and still cook with wood or charcoal. Nothing, let me repeat nothing that uses gas has been able to duplicate that flavors that the wood make.

I know I am chasing my tail trying to find a rub/sauce combination that fits everyones bill, but the only way I'm going to find out is by trial and error. At least I will get to eat all the results and there are no shortage of volunteers.

So that is my plan. Get a WSM and put all the knowledge gained in the last year to work. Most important, getting a good notebook so I can write everything down and make refinements. I'm looking to make a repeatable process that I can tweak to taste.

That is one purchase you will not regret, [smilie=a_goodjobson.gif] just make sure you don't forget to pay some attention to the Lang [smilie=nonono.gif] it just might get lonely once you get use to how convenient the WSM will be. :cheers

I ordered two off the link from this site. One for me and one for my dad. They offered two day shipping for 10 bucks each so I decided I wanted to break them in for the weekend.

I can't wait!!!
