Finally bought the "bullet"...
 
New guy here so I thought I'd post my first post (not in the help section) with a picture. Its a rainy day here in north Florida and I had a 15% coupon at my local Lowes so I came home with this:


Too late to do any cooks this weekend (which is a shame as Publix has butts on sale for $1.99/lb) but I have the inlaws coming in next weekend so I was thinking about doing a butt when they get here. Maybe shoot for pulled pork next Saturday evening so I'll need an early start to get that done.

At any rate, I think I am going to throw a couple of naked fatties on during the week so I can at least do a "dry run" and to see how this handles. I plan on going the foiled water pan route and not using any water at all. Already have a Maverick Thermometer and I picked up a couple of bags of Stubbs at Wally World for fuel.

Any pointers for my dry run during the week?

Well for some reason I can't see the picture anymore so I don't know if Flickr is having problems or what...

Click on the link in the frame and it shows up. I wonder if Flickr has a limit for external links.

Awesome! You will like it! Now get that baby fired up and smoke something.

I can't see the picture, but I assume it is a WSM.

1. Wash it out with dish-soap and water to get any manufacturing oil off the inside before using it.

2. Use the minion method for your fuel.

3. I like some water in my foil-wrapped bowl, so the dripping grease doesn't burn. I want wood smoke, not grease smoke. But, there are varied opinions on water in a WSM. That's mine.

It looks like you posted a link to the picture rather than the picture itself. I'm not a Flickr user but there should be a way to get the address of the image itself and post that using the Insert Image button above the post edit window.

Biggen 02-23-2013 05:19 PM

Yeah, I don't know what the problem is. It showed up fine when I previewed the message before I posted it. I posted it using the [img] tags like I normally due when posting images to other VBulletin message boards around the internet.

Wow that is a beaut. Gonna have me one of them one day too.

This is the correct code for the pic:

[IMG]http ://farm9.staticflickr.com/8089/8501752846_33cbba5b48_b.jpg[/IMG]

Without the space after "http" and the ":" colon.

When I look at the original post it doesn't have img tags, it has url tags. If you just pasted the address into the post the forum will assume it is a url and add the url tags.

Just in case this comes up again, what did you do to get the direct address for the image on Flickr, Michael?

Harbormaster 02-23-2013 06:04 PM

So THAT'S what a new WSM looks like!

Very sharp!

And you will indeed love cooking on it.
