thanks for the support folks-
williamj-my thoughts as well
peeps-similar experience. I like the ease of gas, but the flavor of charcoal. Didn't know about chimneys when I went to my gasser. Learned about chimneys while researching smokers and using the WSM. did some more looking and realized the time savings regarding gas/charcoal can be negated w/a chimney.
plus, if all you need is one patty cooked, just toss a grate over the chimney and you're good
Beware the wrath of a patient man. 18.5 WSM and "Buddy", my converted Budlight OT grill.
