    New (used) 18" WSM

    Just bought a new (used) 18" WSM from a guy via craigslist. He also threw in a 22.5" kettle. He just bought a BGE so he was looking to down size as he is getting ready to move out of state. As we were loading the equipment into our van, I was extolling the virtues of AR and the Pitmaster Club. He blew my mind by saying he was a member as well. Small world! He also had another mid section he included. I went to the Weber Virtual Bullet forum and asked if anyone had stacked the units and apparently it can be done. I stacked the new mid section on the old one but had some serious gaps. I switched the out and had a much better seal. He also included a gasket kit and hinge. I now have 2 WSM's and 4 kettles.

          FLBuckeye congrats! You'll soon be in the running for the 'longest signature' award if you keep that up! Although David Parrish and Max Good will be hard to beat.

            The escalations continue in the war to own the most grills. I'm pretty sure though I am in at LEAST third place after Candy and Max. MH prob has me beat too.

          The extra WSM will also help out a lot when I compete. I will be able to do two butts, a brisket, and ribs on the 2 WSM's. The chicken I can do on a kettle. More money muscle to work with for turn in. For the Florida BBQ Association events, they require eight pieces as opposed to six pieces with the KCBS events. We are camping this long weekend and I will be cooking pork and chicken on Friday and brisket on Saturday. Cooking for 13

                Ah, the joys of living in a state where one can go camping in early April and be comfortable. It's 34 degrees here in Southern Michigan at the moment.

                I gave a cooker away last week...

                I hope the BGE moves and ends up good. I've already figured that mine stays with the house.

                  That stacked WSM is a clever idea. Since Weber grills are all modular individual parts (center ring, grates, etc) can be purchased separately. The only drawback I see with the stacked cooker is that it looks like a step stool might be needed to access the top of it.

                      It's tough to have too many WSM's. I have a pair of 22.5's. And when I'm thinking of doing more than 20 rack of ribs (I can cook 10 racks per 22.5 WSM), I start itching to get another one.

                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
