After using a horizontal offset for many years, my biggest problem with my new WSM was finding something to do in lieu of adding fuel and constantly adjust the dampers to keep the target temperature.
I even remember thinking the thermometer was stuck and how i kept trying to tap it to make it become unstuck.
