Default Pulled the trigger!

Picked up my 22" WSM today, it's still sitting in the box because I'm at work, but I'm gunna heat it up tomorrow to see how it works, then smoke some ribs on Friday. I'll post some pics then :)

Hey, I understand that Lowes sells a grommet I can use to replace one of the handle bolts for temp probes. Without opening the box, can someone tell me what size to get so I can snag that today?

Thanks!

Any reason?

We have 3 18.5" WSM's. and 1 22.5. The 22.5 can do a LOT more food at one time, so is great for a party or any larger group. Also a plus is, with it's size, you don't have to make a packer brisket do contortions to fit it on the 22.5, and you can get multiple whole slabs of ribs on without bending, rolling, etc.

On the downside, it eats more fuel, but other than that, I love mine. Either takes a few cooks to get gunked up a little and settle in at temps.

Edit - I should read closer! I see you you wished for the 22, not the 18....I will go sit in the corner now
