Am I expecting too much heat from my wsm? Are there any tricks or advice or am I looking at buying a 22" kettle?
Do not know if you are using a roasting pan or not but yesterday I was doing a butt and had a large turkey roasting pan on lower rack to catch grease and mine would not get above 280. To my amazement when I removed the pan my temps went to 375 immediately.
