Made a believer out of me

If you guys and gals tell me the moon is made out of cheese I will believe yall. Been reading all the comments made about the WSM's and I was really skepticle about it. Bought one about a month ago and did my first cook on it last night. I had talked to a couple of yall how long a burn you could get out of one load of charcoal and was told 12-16 hours @ 250-275 and I thought that was bull crap. Well I know that is true now. Been reading all the post on how to use and found it was very easy even on my first cook. No problems at all. Temp stayed steady all night long. Put 2 5 #'s butts on at 7 last night and wrapped them at 2 this morning and pulled at 7 this morning. Here are a few pics I took of the cook.

Getting the fire ready.



Butts rubbe down with Wolfe Bold



The fire ready to go



The butts that was cooked



This is a pic that my wife took to rub in it on me what she was having for lunch.

Seeing those pics takes me back. A song by a great philosopher/poet comes to mind:

Like a virgin...touched for the very first time...

Oh, pardon me. Did I say poet? I meant to type whore.

I thought it always sounded like BS too, especially after cooking on a Brinkman bullet smoker. I'm very tempted, and your comments may push me towards getting one.

I guess that's why you don't see used ones for sale.

What a cool idea...

At a comp, everyone should gather their WSM's in a group and
stand around them with old fashioned Smoking Jackets on....
it might start a new WSM Club

The pic sent to Weber might even get someone a free WSM

What I did was took a bean can that held about 20 briquettes in it and lit them and when they turned gray I pulled the can out with a pair of tongs. I was trying to keep the WSM from getting to hot to start out with. Everthing I have read says it's eaiser to get the temp up than trying to bring it down. Hope that makes sense.
