Thom, you can remove the water pan from the WSM and get the same direct fire taste you're referring to.[/quote:1y73i7z3]

#-o That's what I do.

Yes there have been threads on the KCBS Board about that very idea
A lil tricky because the fire is so close to the meat so TOP Shelf only
Its worth trying with Beef .The BDS has alot more space between the heat and the meat

Well I just go a conformation that my WSM shipped yesterday. I can’t wait for it to come in. My guess is it will be here by Friday. [-o< I hope. One more toy the figure out how to use. My back yard is starting to look like Smoker U.

Mine just came in today. God bless the UPS guy. I wasn't home when he came and he stuck it in the garage. I saw the sticky on the door and thought Oh $h*t, I missed him. But it was in the garage. Quick question do I have to season it at all before I ccok on it? I'll let you know how it assembles.

You don't have to season it because of the porcelain coating. Just wash the oil off the cooking grates before using them. You can either wash the inside off with soap and water or do a burn off with some charcoal and a few chunks of wood. Its all just to get the manufacturing oils and dirt off.

Looks great! Now, take LOTS of pics before you cook on it because it'll NEVER be that clean again!

I opened them a notch, and I'm at a nice steady 255* dome temp, I was looking for 250* but i'll take it. So far so good. Well see at around 6.

there you go. I promise, not one person on this board can tell the difference between meat cooked at 250 and 255!!!

OH NO, You mean my barbecue won't come out right if I run a higher temp than 255?

Pigs is kidding. He knows. Everyone who buys a wsm for the first time frets over every little change in temps. 5 degrees won't hurt anyone.
Just monitor the trends until you have a feel for it. And get a Maverick!
