It's true -- smoking is addictive, and I'm hooked.

Pros:Excellent overall construction, ability to hold heat for long periods, made by Weber.

Cons:Water pan difficult to use, no work surface, no built-in thermometer.

The Bottom Line: Smoking meat really brings out the flavor, and the WSM is the best smoker out there. It's well made, pretty easy to use, and it's a Weber!


I got my Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker (WSM) about a month ago from Dickson Supply (http://www.dicksonsupply.com). This is the third Weber product that I own, and I am a customer for life. After I bought my first Weber, a Smokey Joe, I sent in my registration card, not expecting anything in particular. But about a month later, I got a welcome package from Weber, and began receiving their excellent newsletter full of good recipes. I'm still getting it over 8 years later.

Anyway, at this point, I've smoked a couple of racks of spareribs and baby backs, and many dozens of chicken drumsticks in the WSM. Smoking meat over low heat (225 - 250 degrees) really enhances the flavor. I just use a rub made of equal parts black pepper, kosher salt, paprika, and brown suger, and the smoker (with some hickory chunks thrown in) does the rest.

The construction is typical Weber -- heavy gauge sheetmetal, everything fit properly, etc. The aluminum door and vents are a little flimsy, but are easily bent back into shape if necessary. As others have mentioned, the water pan is a little tricky to put into place and to fill. I wish it had come with a thermometer built in. But really, the overall quality is very high.

Keep in mind, this is smoking, so it takes a long time. No instant gratification here. But the flavor is so amazing, I'm almost ready to give up my regular grill. I highly recommend the WSM.
