That Maverick 733 sure looks nice to me, and at the discounted price it sure looks like it should be part of the order. I don't want to go gadget crazy (at least I THINK I don't...), but this looks like a wise investment.
If you do decide to go gadget crazy, get the Pitmaster IQ 120. It tells you your pit temp, food temp, and controls your airflow for steady temps. It is the best accessory I've ever bought for my WSM.

Dave, do u have these hinges? I'm considering them. Can you post pics?

Don't mean to hijack your thread, aks. I have a WSM 22 as well, and absolutely love it. The Mav is a big reason I have enjoyed my WSM so much, as it has helped me get the most out of my WSM.
I agree 100%!! The WSM is amazing and teamed with the maverick is a grandslam!!!!

I have this too and it is great for long, overnight cooks. Any short or daytime cooks, I usually don't use it and go a la natural...

Ordered for delivery on May 21!

WSM 22; ThermoPop White; Maverick 733

So I'll be able to do a seasoning burn, and do brisket and St. Louis ribs on Memorial Day.

Oh man....

Not thinking I could wait until the weekend. Get yourself some stuff to smoke a fatty on it. That might hold you over to the weekend...

Welcome to the world of no stress smoking. I too started out with an ECB. Not knocking them but they take more work than a stick burner to hold even temp. My WSM made BBQ fun again.

The Maverick ET-733 is a good move. I like it for being able to watch football games and see what happening at a glace. I have the ET-732.

As far as temp control devices, you don't really need them. I can run 270*F for up to 16 hours with maybe 6 adjustments on the vents. Once you learn it and get it seasoned, it will rock steady. The only enemy is strong wind.
