    WSM owners- help me answer this

    A person on the main AR site wants to know roughly how long the 22" WSM will maintain temps w/o reloading coals, ballpark. Obviously this varies with chosen temps, but let's say 225ish.

    Thanks

    I have exceeded 12 hours running between 225-250 in mine without adding any more charcoal. I fill the charcoal ring nearly to the top using a little less than a full bag.

      Thanks Zman23, I'll pass this on! Just confirming this in the big 22" one?

      If you Minion, nearly a full 20 pound bag will go in, and I've kept temps for 18 hours. A few hours in, you have to really choke the vents back to keep the temps in line.

      I switched to Fuse Method, and not load as much coal in there (at or below the level of the ring) so I can keep the vents open more, cleaner fire & better smoke ring, but the downside is I have to add fuel around hour 9.

      Fun Fun Fun!

        I only have the wimpy 14.5 so I can't help with this. Don't get me wrong though, the 14.5 is one hell of a cooker.

              Well, when you have a Lang I am sure a WSM has much less appeal.

            I have gotten 12 hours. Add a guru and you can probably go longer.
