My BBQ team Slap Yo Daddy BBQ from Diamond Bar, California, has been competing using these smokers which I bought off Amazon with free Prime shipping. They work flawlessly and are easy to use and clean up. Our WSMs regularly allow us to win Grand Championships even when we go up against other smokers costing over $15,000.

The key step once your smoker arrives is to ensure you season it properly. New WSMs will tend to overheat until you are able to get grease and gunk on the inside and around the rim where the lid sits to ensure an air tight seal. The fastest way to season is to do the following: Phase One - cover the water pan completely with aluminum foil and run a full load of lit Kingsford briquettes and let it run as hot as it can with no water in the pan (over 350 degrees) to burn off any manufacturing residue. Clean out the ash and proceed to phase two.

Phase Two - fill the charcoal basket 1/2 full of unlit briquettes. Then put in a 1/2 chimney of lit Kingsford briquettes in the middle. This will allow a slow burn for 3-5 hours at 72 degrees outside temperature. Adjust the vents to get 275 degrees on the dome thermometer. Put bacon strips, chicken parts, pork fat, or any other scrap meat you don't plan to eat. The key is to get fatty meats to generate lots of grease. Toss in a couple of tennis-sized wood chunks to generate smoke. Repeat Phase Two at least twice before you cook meat that you want to eat.

Phase Three - When you cook meat you plan to eat, take a tip from me and don't use any water in the pan. When I cook, I just cover the water pan with foil top and bottom. I foil it twice so I can remove the second layer after the cook and refoil it. That way, I don't have to clean my pan.

As a fan of the earlier Smokey Mountain Cooker, I'm surprised and gratified with the changes they made to the smoker.

The previous smoker was an easy 5 stars in my book. I guess I'd have to give this one 6 stars, because it's better!

After using my old smoker for some time, I began finding ways to improve it. It seems that Weber thought so too, and their changes include all of mine plus a few more.

Here are some important improvements:

Wider door for adding charcoal & such. This is NOT a small detail but rather a much appreciated design change. The older model's smaller door made it more difficult to place wood chunks or new charcoal where I wanted them and once upon a time I knocked the water pan down into the coals trying to put a wood chunk toward the back of the smoker.

The door latch is spring loaded and features a lever type handle. The previous door latch is not spring loaded and had a featureless round knob. It was less secure and not always easy to tell if the latch was fully closed. Now it's obvious -- for those of us who need things to be obvious. :)

Built-in thermometer! To think I paid more than Amazon's current price on the smoker and then another $50 on a thermometer. Mine is even in the same place on the lid. Great minds think alike, I guess... and Weber added this useful feature while keeping the price under control.

Bottom ash catch pan. I never thought of that one but then again I have a concrete pad set up and it was never a big deal to sweep up a few stray ashes.

Overall, the smoker performs as well as the older model but is much easier to use. With the thermometer, it will be much easier to maintain temperature and smoke up some great grub right out of the box.

I just received my 14.5 WSM a week ago and I've already cooked on it 5 times including a KCBS sanctioned BBQ competition in SoCal with over 40 teams. This new WSM looks like they shot the 18.5 model with a shrink ray! It works just as well as its larger brothers with the convenience of a smaller tailgating-sized Smokey Joe. With a single load of charcoal filled just above the charcoal ring (about 1/3 of a 20lbs bag), I was able to maintain 225º for 16 hours using the Minion method! Of course, your mileage may vary.

This model also has some of the new improvements that Weber has added to the larger models. They include a silicone temperature grommet and handles on the lower food grate. The grommet, which is located between the food grates, is for food probes, pit probes and stick thermometers. This location is ideal so that a stick thermometer can give a better temperature reading on the lower food grate. Handles on the lower food grate is something that we've been asking for for years. There are several mods found on the internet on how to make your own; however, now Weber has listened to their fans and have included this essential feature.

Thus far, I've cooked rib tips, chicken thighs, tri tip and one overnight cook of bone-in pork shoulder. The 10lbs. shoulders barely fit (as I expected); one on each food grate. They both turned out just as excellent as they would have on the larger models. You can also fit a whole chicken fryer on each grate as well a trimmed brisket flat or point (or a whole 12lbs. packer with the point & flat separated and placed on different food grates). Three whole racks of St. Louis Style spare ribs can be cooked on a single food grate with a stand-up rib rack by trimming to 6-8 bones or you can roll/coil the ribs as well.
