    Brisket question

    I've got a 14" wsm. My butcher had a 4 lb grassfed brisket so I bought it. I've done everything but a brisket in my little wsm. I can't seem to find any info on whether such a small piece would be better low n slow or high heat. And I can't find anything that tells me approximately how long per...

    any difference between cooking chicken and turkey?

    I'm planning on smoking a turkey for Thanksgiving but don't want to cook a whole one in advance just to make sure it comes out ok. I have used my new 14.5" on chicken enough now that I no longer have rubber skin. I can get the heat to a steady 350 if I prop the lid just a tiny bit and don't...

    Cooking grass fed meat versus grain fed

    I prefer to cook grass fed, but it has little fat. Since I'm new to the wsm, I'm wondering if anyone has advice regarding cooking times for grass fed versus grain fed? Do you cook it less, or do something to account for the lack of fat? I did a gf brisket on my kettle once, and it was good...

    Newbie Questions - confused by too many opinions

    Hi, I'm getting my 14.5 wsm in a few days and have been doing some reading up in advance. I've got some questions I'm hoping ya'll can answer. I see conflicting info about some things :confused: 1. Can you (or should you) smoke fish on your wsm if you use it for meat? I'm thinking I might...

    My name is Lin and I just ordered a 14.5" wsm. I've been using a Weber kettle for years and have wanted to improve my low and slow cooking. I didn't want to get the smokenator and the kettle just wasn't giving me the best results. I considered a PK grill and the PBC, but felt the PBC was...
