    Party coming up...Trying to figure out what I can fit on WSM

    I may be wrong but I always thought anything added to the smoker, mid cook, should stay on the bottom rack so raw drippings don't fall on cooked meat.

    Opinion on smoking under a covered porch?

    I have many times and I don't see any affect on the ceiling. When my grill was under then that was a problem. One thing I hate is all the damn flies that gather around when I'm smoking something. Not sure if its the smoke that doesn't get blown away but there is always a bunch of flies around.

    No water pan ?

    I use the same piedmont pan setup. I think the time I spent reshaping the door mad a big difference plus the folded foil I pressed in on the top of the door. It seems to only have a gap at the top. Other then my bent vent everything else has been awesome.

    No water pan ?

    Where did you get aluminum tape? my door leaks a lot. When I close all vents the coals never go out till they slowly burn all out( no more charcoal) Can take over a day. So what I have been doing is using a spatula and putting all the coals in a large tin can and put the top on.

    you need food pics good to hear it game out great. Ive done the yumyum recipe myself and it came out good. But like yourself it was a bit undercooked. Would have been a bit more tender if they would have stayed on 30-45 minutes longer.
