Gonna wait to get one off Craigslist once people realize they can't fit ribs flat on the grate

Seriously, love my WSM, Mini and Cajun Bandit conversion but just can't justify picking up a 14.5" at this time...

Default Justified ???? Repeat after me

If you can't eat it, shoot it or drive it then you don't need it.

If you want it, it's justified. Sort of.

I originally bought a 18 1/2" WSM. After a year, I realized I needed more room, so I bought a 22 1/2" WSM.

I also have a 22 1/2" and 26 3/4" OTGs. OTGs are chicken cooking machines.

The 14 1/2" WSM is cool, but with my arsenal of cookers, I can't see the need for one.

That being said, I will probably buy one, just because.

Looks like an awesome Smoker for 2 people. Husband and Wife on a holiday with a caravan. You have a WGA and / or a Mini WSM. You can do some really nice links, some half racks of ribs or a rack of lamb and a tri tip or two... Never mind a few pork chops and any kind of chicken. I'm thinking you wont need a lot of fuel either.

I'll get one if I can.

Cheers!

Bill

Weber actually introduced a 14.5" WSM in 1981, there is a great article on the history of the WSM at the bullet site. I'm sure Weber will sell a ton of them!

I don't envision one on my deck anytime soon, because my Cajun Bandit Mini fits the bill much better than a small bullet.





I haven't gone the tamale pot route, and don't get all the diffuser mods etc. Because I found this cool steel vacuum canister!



I've used it with the old style SJ with 3 daisy vents JSJ and SJG vents and never had any major issues as long as the intake vents were clear.

I settled on a UDS intake and never looked back.



Even made a rotisserie ring for them!





Go Weber- C'mon Cajun Bandit!!

Yair . . . How things are different. I went into the shop owned by the largest barbecue retailer in Australia (Weber retailers) and asked to see WSM.

Had to explain to the salesman it was a bullet looking thing and he remembered that they had one in last year but couldn't sell it.

They had no intention of stocking them and I asked could they get one in on special order. Well yes they could for $680.00. I told them to give it a miss.

In Australia the flat plate grill and griddle reigns supreme.

Cheers

Why did Weber do this to me? I worked hard to get over my outdoor cooker addiction. I'm down to 3 on the deck and 1 spare and have vowed to live with what I have.

I'll be looking for posts like the one above saying you can't put a full slab on it other reasons why I don't need one. I know you guys won't let me down.

Default No addiction support

I sold two Weber WSM's and an Akorn when I bought my Pit Barrel Cooker. I was trying to calm my addiction as people were starting to talk in front of my back :-) Then my wife overhears me ragging on my brothers and friends for their made in Mexico uppity green cookers. She figures I need some cooking methadone treatment (she is a Made in USA girl through and through)and buys me a made in USA Primo XL with stainless cart and 6 most popular accessories along with a couple years worth of John Henry rubs/spices.

There is just no family support for some addictions.
And I am thankful for that.

ohhh! I'm probably going to see if those handled grates and charcoal basket will fit my homemade mini!
