    WSM Pre-Purchase Questions

    I’m one of the many trying to decide which WSM to buy. I’ve read some threads on a few different forums. 95% of the stuff I see is “go big go big always go big go big” or “build a UDS”.

    Dent

    Hello, new to the Forum and excited to start getting into smoking. Was going to purchase a 22.5" WSM over the internet and was quoted at $250 for a display model with a dent in the main body and some chipped paint. I was wondering if this would affect the performance of the WSM? Thanks in...

    WSM 22.5 observation

    So I am posting in the new wsm owner thread, even though I owned my first wsm five years ago. I loved it, but got carried away in a bge sickness, and let my friend have my 18.5 wsm after I got my second bge. I have, and still do enjoy using my eggs, but I found a 22.5 wsm for sale last week...
