They are great. Used my original wsm yesterday to cook a couple of butts for the Women's Shelter to be served today. Also used one of the 22s to do some baby backs for us. The wsm is still my favorite. It is one of the originals, wooden handles, shallow water pan, and no date codes. I think it holds temp much better than 22s. Just not quite big enough for long slabs of ribs without cutting or a rack.

It may be my imagination, but I think it is built better than the new ones.

I did use the Auber on it as it was raining with ice and snow all day and I'm a wuss.

I keep my eyes open for another original, but no success so far. Waiting for Harbormaster to let go some of his.

My father in law always cooked on an OLD weber kettle. When Hurricane Katrina came through a big pine destroyed half the house and that ole weber.....crushed legs and big dent in the lid. My mother in law as all southern women do wanted it gone because "it didn't look right".......well I put some short 3/4 inch pipe nipples to replace the legs, put it on a rolling cart and left the dent in the head. I gave her a nickname and she is cooking to this day,,,,the name of course is "FYK"....which of course stands for **** you Katrina......
