Can I modify a 22 WSM to behave like a PBC?
I was wondering if I could buy a 22.5" wsm and turn it into a pbc. I was thinking of doing a few things.
-remove the water pan and cook directly over the coals (uds style)
-create something like willwork4bbq did and hang the meat from where the top rack is (was also thinking of also just hanging it from the actual top grate)
-Keep the vents dialed in to a certian temp to maintain the 280 range
Would it cook as fast? Would I be able to get it up to temp as quickly as the pbc, and would it be as easy and "set it and forget it" as a pbc?
Advantages/disadvantages? Fuel consumption? Input greatly appreciated.
