Not sure if I should start a new thread, but anyway, here is the wings I made yesterday. Got the wings and really all the meat for today at a true meat shop. They were nice and big. This rub is Hanks Spicy Rub, based out of Sea Isle City, NJ, and got a nice picture before the sauce. Really loved the color here and had one before sauce (naked) and they were excellent!

Hi all- introducing myself. Based outside of Philly, I just picked up a used 18” WSM a week ago and am planning my first cook tomorrow. I will be using the basic ribs recipe and am pretty excited. I have never used a smoker before, but have done the oven to grill many times, so at least the rib prep will be somewhat consistent. I have been wanting a WSM for months, read a ton, and look forward to sharing the results. Happy holidays, everyone.
Welcome Matt - I'm located in NJ 30 minutes outside Philly


The WSM is not just a smoker. Marinate some Roadside Chicken and grill over the open coals on the grill. Lots of basting, lots of smoke, lots of flavor smells coming off the grill.
