A little trick on the WSM lower vents

Saw this years ago and no one mentions it...maybe everyone knows...
but when its dark outside, and you're trying to adjust the vents, and you can't see them....remember....CLOckwise, CLOsed.

Never knew that! The only one I can see is the front one. I judge how much they are opened with the tip of my finger in the hole.

OK. You got me. I ain't smart enuf to no witch way clokwyse is.[/quote:11xg92ar] I was just out firing up the side ribs and tried the 'clockwise' trick. RIght hand no problemo. Left hand, well, gotta pause for like five seconds and will my hand to turn the right way. Left hand challenged I guess Doesn't take anything away from the good suggestion though.

I use a flashlight too.

Jeff...if you are making a funny line then that is really funny ...if you were just writing it straight, you need to go back to elementary school!

Not to worry, everyone, I'm eating a strange concoction of cast iron skilleted ground round with chili powder and stubbs spicy bbq sauce on it, along with a cuppa joe, black with demerara sugar.

surely i'll soon be nice (surely I'll soon be on my martini and cigar!)
The sooner the better on that martini....a few of those will make everything okie dokie!

Well I can't really do a squat and get down to see the vents, so I gotta do the WM, "Wolfe Method" by feeling with my fingers! Hey if Jim can have the "Minion Method", I can have the "WM"!!

Not sure on how popular that will be, but it sure will get some attention!

Larry, you got any finger prints left on the WM fingers? Maybe after a few good burns kinda deaden the nerves, can't feel it any more.
