Default When are WSM guys going to shine?

I was just thinking today...I hear of a lot of guys on here using WSM's and after watching the Best in Smoke and the last season of BBQ pitmasters. A lot of those folks had some pretty nice smokers even reconized a Jambo pit and a couple of Green Eggs on the Best in Smoke show. I want to see someone like one of us BBQ brothers come in with nothing more to cook on than those bullet smokers and just totally knock it out of the park.

Nothing against the guy that has a $9,000 smoker because if I had that kind of money to spend I probably would be buying one too. I just think it would be cool to see someone on the Best in Smoke or BBQ Pitmasters with that $399 Weber from Home Depot.

I hope everyone catches what I'm trying to say here. Not trying to start any fights. just wondered if anyone else has thought the same thing at least once.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Yeah that

And Rock's BBQ did pretty well last weekend, I think they use a 22'5" alongside a BGE don't they?

Oh yeah! Slap Yo Daddy and Rythm N Que are a couple of my hero's. I want to see more guys like that on these shows. My hopes are to get to meet or talk to Vince of Rythm N Que and Harry Soo of Slap Yo Daddy. Competition BBQ is I guess kind of like Bass Fishing. You always want the biggest and baddest out there. I just feel a little intimated setting next to a guy with a really expensive smoker. Almost like the underdog.

I personally know over a dozen cookers that use WSM's and are very successful, IIMHO I think the big expensive cookers make better talk and just catch more attention....

I've RGC'd twice with only a Brinkmann Stillwater and multiple Weber Silver 22's against many Lang's, Bubba Grills (another reverse flow offset), and too many to count BGE's, Stumps, FEC's, etc. Mind you, I had to work my butt off and there was never a moment during the entire cook that I could rest. Hence my Lang 1160 (which is closer to a Lang 84 than I knew) which I LOVE. Smaller, simpler, can work, but usually means a lot more work and frankly a little bad luck to NOT find you...

Expensive, usually buys stability (of heat), and plenty of glitz. Size buys ability to cook more meat, compete in additional sanctioning bodies' cookoffs, cook for the big party, etc. However, cooks win cookoffs, not smokers.

Dude with all due respect...DON'T EVER LET THE SIZE OF A PERSON'S RIG INTIMIDATE YOU!!!! Cause at the end of the day, it's the cook that wins the contest, not the cooker. We cook on nothing more than a Backwoods Chubby and a 18.5 inch WSM, and in just our 3rd comp against against a ROUGH field did really well!!! To me it's cooking on your cooker enough to know how it's gonna react in certain situations to get timing down to produce the best Q' that you can. As fas as being an underdog..Hell, I love that role!!!! Nothing is more fun that shocking the world!!!! LOL LOL LOL Good Luck to you my WSM brother in smoke!!!

I'm still waiting for one of the big TV shows to feature teams using UDSs and kettles exclusively. I know there are a lot of teams out there doing it very successfully. Sure those rigs don't have the glitz and glamor of the big ones, but if the general public was exposed to the simple stuff more it may foster even more interest since they are more accessible and less intimidating to the novice.

I've never seen a high dollar bass rig catch fish, and I've never seen a high dollar smoker win a contest.

Just sayin...

I've got a pretty nice rig for catering. However, for comps, I am rolling with (2) 22.5 WSMs for portability.
