Thanks all! I do run the WSM with no water in the pan even for low temp cooks. It seems like the happy place for these 22" WSMs is around 250* no matter what i do. Although it will sit at 225* all night on the Stoker when I start the fire off slow. Also, I have checked to shake the ash off the charcoal and even tried adding a whole chimney of lit to no avail. Wind usually isn't a problem, but the cold may be. perhaps I need to throw a blanky on there
. Does anyone have any experience using any kind of insulator on these?
