Default Finally bought the "bullet"...

New guy here so I thought I'd post my first post (not in the help section) with a picture. Its a rainy day here in north Florida and I had a 15% coupon at my local Lowes so I came home with this:


Too late to do any cooks this weekend (which is a shame as Publix has butts on sale for $1.99/lb) but I have the inlaws coming in next weekend so I was thinking about doing a butt when they get here. Maybe shoot for pulled pork next Saturday evening so I'll need an early start to get that done.

At any rate, I think I am going to throw a couple of naked fatties on during the week so I can at least do a "dry run" and to see how this handles. I plan on going the foiled water pan route and not using any water at all. Already have a Maverick Thermometer and I picked up a couple of bags of Stubbs at Wally World for fuel.

Any pointers for my dry run during the week?

Well for some reason I can't see the picture anymore so I don't know if Flickr is having problems or what...

Click on the link in the frame and it shows up. I wonder if Flickr has a limit for external links.

Awesome! You will like it! Now get that baby fired up and smoke something.

I can't see the picture, but I assume it is a WSM.

1. Wash it out with dish-soap and water to get any manufacturing oil off the inside before using it.

2. Use the minion method for your fuel.

3. I like some water in my foil-wrapped bowl, so the dripping grease doesn't burn. I want wood smoke, not grease smoke. But, there are varied opinions on water in a WSM. That's mine.

It looks like you posted a link to the picture rather than the picture itself. I'm not a Flickr user but there should be a way to get the address of the image itself and post that using the Insert Image button above the post edit window.

Yeah, I don't know what the problem is. It showed up fine when I previewed the message before I posted it. I posted it using the [img] tags like I normally due when posting images to other VBulletin message boards around the internet.

This is the correct code for the pic:

[IMG]http ://farm9.staticflickr.com/8089/8501752846_33cbba5b48_b.jpg[/IMG]

Without the space after "http" and the ":" colon.

When I look at the original post it doesn't have img tags, it has url tags. If you just pasted the address into the post the forum will assume it is a url and add the url tags.

Just in case this comes up again, what did you do to get the direct address for the image on Flickr, Michael?

So THAT'S what a new WSM looks like!

Very sharp!

And you will indeed love cooking on it.
