Default More and More I become a Weber Fanatic

The more I cook and smoke, the more I enjoy Weber's products. The kettle grill is such a diverse tool when you spend some time learning the different techniques to do different styles of cooks. Maybe a WSM is in my near future...?

I know exactly what you mean. I cooked on a bunch of different smokers for years before finally getting rid of all of them and buying my first Weber OTG off CL for $40. I just wanted to go back to basics. I can honestly say that I've learned more about real deal bbq/smoking on that kettle than I ever did from electric and cheap charcoal smokers.

A WSM is a good addition.

A WSM is the next logical cooker.

Be careful, this passion for Webers can start to get overwhelming.

instead of buying a WSM its super easy to convert your kettle to one with a piece of a 55 gal drum and a few screws and a home made charcoal basket

while you are at it, add a rotisserie to it too
