    Hello, new to Forum & Smoking

    Hey everyone, glad to be part of this community and hobby, I just picked up a 2014 WSM 18.5" and Auber SYL-1615SYS.

    I wanted to thank you all a head of time for the help. :-)


    Homework:
    Hello, my name is Chris and I'm located in Rockford IL. I just got into smoking a few weeks ago with a ECB. I quickly learned it was just too much work and purchased a WSM 18.5" and Auber temp controller. I have only smoked some chicken quarters (pictured below) and some chicken breasts. Both turned out very well and I'm looking forward to doing Ribs, Brisket and the ever so loved Pork Butt.

            Thank you! So far I'm having a bumpy start with it. I'm going to post some support questions later tonight around it.

              WSMTish I would run that "auto-tune cycle." After Bill ran that, his temp. standard deviation was only 1.65

                I saw that, I tried the AT cycle and it got stuck at 176F and couldn't clime from there for over 80 min. I'll need to learn how to manage my fuel and hopefully I will find some fellow WSM people with tips on how much fuel to use and so on.

                  I will be using mine on a 22" kettle. I already know what it takes to get to 225. I'll try the auto-tune if things go hay wire.

Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
