Apple for chicken or pork. you can go hickory or oak on chicken but go light, and a bit more for pork. Hickory, pecan, and oak are good for beef. Mesquite is great for beef but be carful a little goes a LONG way and it is easy to ruin a 30 dollar brisket by using too much. Now some tips. Use chunks. do not soak them. if you are in a rural area and your state sends out road crews to cut away overhanging trees or ones growing too close to the road find out where they are and swing by. They should just give you logs you can process. That is how I get all of my oak. and use white oak. Big rounded leaves not sharp ones. If you have a neighbor cutting down a crab apple tree get some of that too, not only will you save them some cleanup crabapple is the best apple wood for smoking. If you can get thick branches they smoke better than trunk pieces because they are denser. Always go for " fresh wood" if possible. the stuff in bags is kiln dried and it kills the flavor, but bags are better than no smoke. Read Less

This depends on personal taste. We've used cherry, apple, pecan, walnut, hickory, and oak. Some have stronger flavours than others and some work better with certain meats than others. Have fun experimenting and finding your favourite combinations!

It'll depend on your tastes and what meat you're smoking. I started out with hickory chunks, but it may be too strong for milder meats like turkey. I suggest looking around the web for ideas from other users. There are almost infinite combinations of wood and rubs, and many opinions about chunks, chips or sawdust, soaking or not soaking, and including bark or not.

There are almost infinite combinations of wood and rubs, and many opinions about chunks, chips or sawdust, soaking or not soaking, and including bark or not. Keep notes so you can figure out what you like best. I'm a bit lazy so I started out with a few chunks of dry wood, and I was surprised how well it worked. One note: A little goes a long way. A big bag will probably last me a couple of years! Read Less

Answer: 
I can't recommend either apple or pecan wood for pork. Be sure you get wood chunks, not chips. When you use this smoker, chunks will smoke for hours while chips burn away in minutes.
Love it that my Home Depot started stocking apple and cherry chunks last year!

Answer: 
Yes, the 18.5" Smokey Mountain Smoker comes with a very nice fitted black vinyl cover with the Weber logo on it. The cover reaches from the top handle to just below the heat shield at the bottom of the smoker. I find it protects the smoker in the rain. At low temperatures the vinyl will be come stiff and may crack if very cold.

The manual is available online from Weber, so check there for the latest information. If I recall correctly, they recommend 225-250 for most smoking, and 325-350 for turkey. I've had no problem maintaining these temperatures following the manual and the user community recommended procedures.

Being fueled by charcoal, it's up to you to control the temperature by working the dampers on the bottom of the unit. I cook & smoke most meats @ 225 degrees, and fish @ 200. You should never exceed 250 degrees because then you run the risk of drying out the meat. Remember, water boils @ 212 so you never want the internal temp. of the meat to get near that or it'll end up dry & tough. FYI: There's a Read More

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 136 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Smoker for the $ I thought I wanted the 22" version but found that it was difficult to keep the temperature under 275*. Amazing Ribs (http://amazingribs.com/) rates this smoker very high and I prefer a vertical smoker over the heat source as opposed to a horizontal smoker with the heat source off to the side. After a few tries I have been able to steady the temps by opening and closing the vents, between 225* and 250*. Great for several racks of spare ribs, or brisket, or shoulder. Weber is the king for outdoor cooking in my opinion and I have a Weber kettle grill, gas grill, and now the 18-1/2 IN. SMOKEY MOUNTAIN COOKER SMOKER. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent I love the smoker. It is user friendly. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn to make their own killer smoked ribs, beef brisket, turkey, or pulled pork. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great smoker! This makes my fourth Weber. It makes BBQ'ing like a pro easy. Easy to assemble. Great quality. Great price. Worth every penny. October 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WSM is a fantastic product. Home Depot had the WSM assembled and ready to go. It was quite easy to learn as I bought a WSM grill cookbook. The general directions included were ok, but specifying the number of brickets is a bit over the top. I've been impressed with how good the meat tastes. February 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent smoker I bought this smoker from HomeDepot today and smoked baby back rib. It is very easy to control the temp, and it holds heat for a while. I am a new smoker and have never smoked before. Make sure to watch videos before you start smoking first time. I smoked rib for 6 hrs at 210. January 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Smoker that you can actually take places! Weber's Smokey Mountain is an outstanding tool for perfectly smoking any meats. The only complaint I have is the tray is held by the legs falls off a little to easily. I appreciate that this smoker can be easily transported to other locations, like campgrounds or friends/family house for events etc. As much as I like Kamados' they are a pain to move more than wherever there final destination may be. Did have a problem with Home Depot in that they did not assemble my smoker as requested AND they said they would. Somehow this information was passed along as "someone else's problem." As such, it never got done and I just assembled it myself. Not hard to do, but thought it was a cool service AND was why I purchased at Home Depot. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Smoker for the price! Assembly seemed difficult at first however only took about 15 minutes. I have used it about 3x in the past month and no issues, however recommend purchasing a wireless thermometer to make managing the temp easy! The thermometer i purchased was Maverick Wireless Grill Thermometer Set for about $60. December 15, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good for the price I arrived at the store for pick up, the smoker was assembled as promised. There were two extra screws in the base just loose. I have not used the smoker yet so any comments on it's performance will be in the warmer weather. January 5, 2016
