Finally got a WSM

I finally broke down and bought a WSM. Got it for $199 from a local dealer. Only used it once so far. The ribs turned out well. But, there is room for improvement.

I'm probably going to have to wait for Christmas to get a Stoker, which is my next planned purchase.

Re: Finally got a WSM

Hearty congrats on the acquisition and sounds like a great price. Aint never been fortunant enough to one own but sure have heard some folks I have learnt to be highly knowledgeable to recommend them highly. Remember the pecking order when you get around to stacking stuff. Pigs goes on top and filthy barnyard avians..possums..skunks..coons..dead fish and billygoats goes on the bottom. Beef come secondary to pork.

You're gonna really like the WSM.

Puff, a WSM better be on your Christmas list. Dude, you've been kinda slow on this one.

My next purchase will be a Stoker. Can't wait.

I got 3 40lb bags of Nature Glow lump for $15/bag last week. I've still got a little B&B to use up in the mean time. I should be into the Nature Glow soon.

The last bag of Nature-Glo (20 lbs) I bought was marked "Made in Paraguay". Were yours?

I'll have to check when I get home this weekend.

When I checked Naked Whiz info there stated Nature Glow was a product of Royal Oak in Georgia.

Yes, the bag I got says either "manufactured for" or "distibuted by" Royal Oak. I think what I've used in the past was actually manufactured in the US by Royal Oak in Georgia. Apparently they are now importing at least some of what they sell.
