Default New WSM Owner! 1st Smoke, Brisket & Ribs!!!

I'm now a proud owner of a new WSM 22.5" smoker!

This thing is HUGE!!! Instant mods I've done are a probe port and wheels added to the legs. In the morning, I'll break it in with a brisket and three slabs of baby back ribs.

Pron to follow....

No pics = didn't Happen
Congrats on the pit. Once you get it dialed in, get comfortable with it, take ou the water bowl and cook direct, man what a difference in flavor!

I installed the wheels and probe port...

Then I filled the ring up with charcoal and wood chunks, and lit 16 briquettes...

I seasoned my brisket while I waited for the smoker to reach temp...

So far, it's rocking along!

Congrats brother, you're going to love the WSM more and more each time you cook.

It is an excellent bbq pit and very well worth the money imo.

I'd like to see your finished brisket and ribs.....enjoy!

Beautiful yard.

You'll love the WSM. Just did my 1st smoke last weekend.

Is the brisket under the ribs?

Thanks! Yes, ribs are on top. This is my first smoke and I searched and searched on ribs on top/ribs on bottom and the consensus seems to be ribs on top. We'll soon see!

Brisket and ribs are done and while I wait on the brisket to settle, I'll munch on some baby backs.....
