Did my inaugural cook in the 14.5″ Weber Smokey Mountain my lifepartner is giving me for my birthday (she knows I don’t like surprises).
Will probably post some written notes of my smoking endeavours, at some point. In the meantime, some pictures documenting the whole thing.
In context (you can see my old Cheapo Offset Smoker in the background)
All the contents of the package, laid out on the lawn to assemble it.
Contrary to the other WSM models, the heatshield goes inside, on this one
Inside the smoker
Fully assembled (took my time, but it was real easy)
Comes with a nylon cover…
Had rubbed the meat in advance
Using Kingsford charcoal as the main fuel, but I can’t help using Basques lumps and some wood chunks
A bit more than half-full
Charcoal chimney was almost ready
Using the Minion method
Bottom grate: drumsticks
Top grate: thighs
Tasty and well-done
Enough coals to make some squash?
Squash, squash seeds, bananas
Added a rutabaga, for good measure
