Hi everyone,

Wow, how time flies! Another year has passed and Memorial Day Weekend will be here before you know it. So it's time to kickoff WSM Smoke Day 13, which we will officially celebrate on Saturday, May 27, 2017. As always, you can plan your Smoke Day celebration for any day before, during, or after Memorial Day Weekend.

A little background...WSM Smoke Day was the brainchild of TVWBB member Joel Kiess. He suggested the event as a way for WSM owners to share their enthusiasm for the cooker and for cooking barbecue. The idea is simple: use this forum to discuss what you'll be barbecuing on Smoke Day, cook it and photograph it on Smoke Day, then share your photos here for all to see!

  • Some members may be planning local Smoke Day meet-ups. If you'd like to host (or attend) a get-together in your area, post here so we can coordinate between members.
  • "But I don't have a WSM!" you say. The good news is there's plenty of time to order one from Amazon.com before the big day. But if not, don't worry, all brands of smokers are welcome.
  • Pin yourself on the Smoke Day Map to indicate your participation.

Oh, and don't forget to order your WSM Smoke Day 13 t-shirt! It's available in many colors and styles up to 4XL. Stickers, magnets, aprons, mugs, and more are also available. You can also get WSM Smoke Day 13 t-shirts with the logo on the back.

So start planning for WSM Smoke Day 13! I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone celebrates this year!
