Default Scored an 18" WSM the other day.

Popped up on CL for $90. Date code DO, 2005. Took the 45 min ride to check it out. I paid $80 for it and when I got to cleaning it, I realized I probably should've tried to pay closer to $60 because it's not exactly the nicest one ever, but hey, now I've got me a WSM.

Dent in the lid and the brackets that hold the water pan are farked up so the guy installed a few bolts to hold the water pan. He also drilled a hole in it for a temp probe. I might try and find a grommet for that.

She ain't brand new but she's mine.

Gonna do some ribs here at work tomorrow, I'll let you know how it goes.

It looks like a score to me. There are many many years of great smoking left in it.

Nice work! That is a great price for an 18" WSM. What are you going to cook up first on there?

Wise. Do you pinwheel them on a 18"?

It's seen some rough treatment but nothing that will compromise how it works. If this is your first WSM, welcome to the club!

As far as baby back ribs, I hung them the last time I made them. Otherwise I trim four bones from the end of each rack to fit them on the grates. I sometimes use these mini four bone racks to test different rubs or even do them in the mini-WSM with different smoke wood or make other changes to the process.

Great score. The 18" WSM is fantastic for long cooks like when doing pork butts or shoulders.
