    Baby Backs and Sausage on WSM 14.5

    This is my latest smoke. I used Famous Dave's Rib Rub. I tried spritzing with Apple juice for the first time. The wood was Oak. Excellent ribs. Tender and juicy. I will try the Apple juice again. The sides were fresh white corn, slaw, collards, and pinto beans. As usual the 14.5 was set...

    A warning about the dangers of digital

    Excellent point. I have a ThermoPro dual. One in the top lid and one in the meat. The only "mod" is a BGE charcoal basket. I pride myself in learning how to use the WSM 14.5 with no whistle and bells. I can peg whatever temp for hours on end. Not sure how to say this. My concern is that...

    WSM 14.5 Cooking Configuration

    Looking for some info. I have been reading up on the "barrel" products. Many folks say the "barrels" are cookers more than smokers. They have no water pan/heat diffuser like the WSMs. The meat is hung directly over the coal. Does anyone have experience with the "barrel" products? Will you...

    Spatchcock Chicken/Sausage on the WSM 14.5

    My latest WSM smoke. I used Weber's Kick'n Chicken Seasoning. The wood was a 50/50 mix of apple and mesquite. Ran the WSM at 270 degrees. As said before, the WSM is an amazing smoker when it comes temp control. Once up to temp it ran the entire cook at 270 degrees with no adjustment needed...

    WSM 14.5 Question - Lower Grate

    I have never used the second level grate on my WSM 14.5. I am needing to smoke two racks of baby backs. Do the ribs on the lower rack cook the same as the ribs on the top rack - time wise and temp wise? I do not use water.....just the water pan covered with foil. Your advice is greatly...

    Babybacks on the WSM 14.5

    Thanks for asking. I used the attached charcoal holder sightly rounded with a small amount of paraffin at the top covered with 2 or 3 briquettes. I use 4 or 5 two inch square chunks of hickory. I let this burn while I prep the ribs. Once the ribs are prepped I put then in the smoker. I run...

    KBB on Sale @ Lowes

    Brian. Good point. Not only is inflation whacking us but shrinkflation is adding to the misery. Packaged sausage went from 160z to 12oz and will prolly go smaller.

    Babybacks on the WSM 14.5

    These guys were excellent. The back half are dry. The front are wet. Cowboy Briquettes and Hickory. As usual, the WSM was set it and forget it. The WSM almost makes it too easy.

    B&B Hickory at Lowe's

    Went to Lowe's to pickup some bathroom hardware and ran into this. I still cannot figure Lowe's marketing. One would think this would be regular price with Spring/Summer coming. I picked up 4 bags.

    Large Pork Butts vs Small Pork Butts

    The Food Lion near me sells half-butts. I cook it low and slow just like the whole butt. Comes out wonderful.

    Stainless Steel Charcoal Basket on a Budget

    Without the charcoal ring. I set the basket grate 90 degrees to the WSM charcoal grate. Nice and consistent burn.
