Allow me to answer your first few questions of your first cook on that baby right now.
1. No, the thermometer is not broken or stuck. It's the WSM holding temps. Relax, have another beer.
2. No, you don't have to add fuel every hour. It's the WSM being very miserly with fuel use. Relax, have another beer.
3. No, you are not unneeded during a long cook. It's nothing personal, it's just the WSM being a WSM. Relax, and find someone sober to go buy more beer.
We'll be right here if you have any other questions.
