I have a basic BDS and the direct fire flavor is wonderful
Much better than our WSM
Right, Thom. That is what the BDS is all about.
And remember, Mista----We are talking about a 22 inch diameter cooking grate. That will hold a bunch of stuff. I don't remember off hand the diameter of a WMS, but I am guessing that the BDS is twice the capicity per grate.
In case you missed it, I suggested earlier to use the dome lid from a Weber kettle on top of the barrel, that will increase the hight enough for you to have two shelves, three if they are close together at the top, so you could do thin stuff like ribs, etc.
