Finally placing my order!
 
Hey yall I hope all of yall are having a relaxing Sunday. Well I'm finally ordering my first smoker today ,I am ordering the 22.5 WSM ,maverick et732 a weber chimney starter and a bag of weber apple wood chunks. Before I place my order I wanted to check with you guys\gals at the brethren. Anything else I should get?

That will cover you. You might want to find cuttings from apple trees, hickory etc...cheaper than buying. Also the ET 732 is a little cheaper with the Remington wrapper. http://www.amazon.com/Remington-Wire...on+thermometer

Weber starter cubes are awfully nice to start your charcoal...in the chimney or directly in the basket.

Thanks. My friends grandfather has a lot of fruit trees at his house so when I get out to the farm I'll get some

You may want a cover for the WSM and also a welders blanket to use in really cold weather Make sure the fam wood is weel seasoned You dont want to use green wood

Make sure you get plenty of charcoal, because you will be using it a lot. And don't limit yourself to one kind only, try a lot of charcoal and wood to find which you like best.

And your WSM will come with a cover.

Awesome . I think I'm goin to do a pork butt for my first cook

Stubbs charcoal is always good to have on hand.

Is there any woods I should stay away from? I know pine is no good

Get some Weber starter cubes. Much quicker and easier than newspaper and leaves almost no mess. You just light one underneath the chimney. They also do a far better job of lighting just a few coals (for Minion) than paper.

Sounds great to me! You'll have a great set up just be patient and the more you use the WSM the easier it will get. Pork is a great start IMHO it doesn't seem to be affected as much by a little temp swing as others. Enjoy!:thumb:

The old saying if it produces a nut or fruit its good. Dont use any elm ash or sweet gum.

Been using Stubs coal lately, really like it. Burns nice and long.

You're going to love the WSM - my 18.5" is a workhorse.
