The charcoal ring will hold an entire bag of Royal Oak Lump without any problem, more if you pile it up.

I think what you bought has been cured like a ham.

He might have purchased the whole shoulder, but the ham is the back legs. Kind of confusing lol

If it has skin on it it is probably the lower part of the arm. It's the part below the Boston butt. Nice sweet meat. Makes fine Q. I like to leave the skin on and crisp it. Most probably pull the skin and season.

They cure shoulders like they do hams. That's what my parents bought to feed all of us with 'cause it tastes like ham but was a lot cheaper than ham and we had a large family to feed.

Saw an interesting idea for homemade fire starters on a website.....they took the round, quilted cotton pads used for face cleaning, and soaked them in unscented candle wax. When they dry....you just light them. Might try it.....probably wouldn't take as long to burn through as the fire starter cubes.

If it looks like a christmas ham it may be from the back leg possibly cured. If it looks like an arm its from the front shoulder. Pics would be nice

Smoke leaking is very normal, most bend the metal to seal it or replace the door. after a bunch of good cooks the grease will seal it a little better.

A "picnic ham" is from the front of the swine and is not cured.

I have yet to see that lol. In CA its difficult to get large cuts like brisket. Pork is getting easier to find. Its sold in whole shoulder, butt, or cured ham is most common.

Best way to fire up a WSM is a weed burner. Harbor Freight ~$35 You don't need a chimney. Concentrate the flame in 4 spots, and add the wood chunks on top. Should take you 8-12 mins to lighter up. I would also send back your Maverick thermometer and get yourself a thermopen. It is much more useful in probing meat for tenderness and temperature. I know its expensive, but it next to the smoker itself is the one piece of bbq equipment you will really need.
