Sorry guys.. I am keeping my Lang... I am afraid the WSM wont hold 250 lbs of pork. or 3 cases of ribs...

This should give me more flexability to experiment without firing up that big cooker. I am excited about giving it a first run.. cept I doubt it will be this weekend. we'll see...

Congrats Gary! One WSM won't hold all that meat, but if you buy 2 or 3 more, you'll be set! You can cook a case of butts on 2 WSM's BTW.

Congrats Gary, your going to love it. After listening to the guys rave about it for a year I finally shot the lock off my wallet and bought one.
Should've done it a year ago.
Good luck

Sounds like a great wife to me. I got one of them bullets and they are awesome for the money. I bet you are going to like how it holds after you figure it out.
