Customer Questions & Answers

What wood do you recommend?

Adding cut wood to the weber smoker.
Asked by: Anonymous
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.

Does this model include a cover?

Asked by: BigDave
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.

18-1/2 in. Smokey Mountain Cooker Smoker is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 168.

Both were very well received. I am not that experienced so followed a couple of recipes from the Virtual Weber Smoker web site. Shoulder was smoked over night and the Weber held the temperature very well for the 6-1/2 hours I wasn't paying attention. Total cook time was 14 hours. Good smoke ring and great flavor. Chickens were smoked for less time and they, too, had great flavor. Used commercial rubs on both and looking forward to trying some other recipes. Overall very satisfied with the unit purchased at Home Depot. All components were in good condition, all hardware was there and assembly was quick and easy. If you have the time for smoking and the money for a little pricier unit, I highly recommend the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker Smoker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 ( 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SMOKIN! Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5 Picked this up 3 weeks ago, and have fired it up 4 times already. Brought it home and had it together in about an hour. Have done 2 practice and 2 serious cooks with it. Did spare ribs on Sunday, and a pork shoulder today. The Wife said the ribs were the best que I've ever done, and the pulled pork was moist and tender. I found the 18.5 to be more than I need for the Wife and I, but it will be perfect when the kids and grand kids are over. This smoker is super easy to use, and will hold temp for incredibly long times. I highly recommend this smoker, in which ever size you need, if you want to learn how to smoke meats. The learning curve is extremely short. Give it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite thing ever Saturday's: Wake up, drink coffee, start coals. Prep ribs. Fill basin, add meat, open vents half way, close top. Slow down. Pandora and sunshine. Outside all day. Margaritas. Hickory and mesquite. Feast. Sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holiday Treat My husband has wanted a smoker for a while now. After reading the reviews on this smoker I decided to buy this for his Christmas gift. Delivery was easy to track and arrived as promised. No damage inside or outside. He found it easy to assemble and it is very sturdy. He smoked a 22lb. Turkey 5 days later. The turkey was tender, juicy and had a wonderful Applewood flavor after using the wood chips. Now our Weber collection is complete.

Assembly was a piece of cake it took me roughly 20-30 minutes to assemble once all pieces were out of the box, maybe 45 minutes from opening of the box until completion. if you are a smoking novice like myself be sure to follow the smoking instructions on pages 7 and 9. Once you get the temp right you will be able to relax and enjoy the aroma of your meat smoking. The key to great tasting, properly smoked meat is to get your smoker temp right. The 3 vents at the bottom makes getting the temp you need easier. I managed to maintain my 250 temp. It will require patience playing with the top and bottom vents to get the right temp. I've used it 2 times to smoke 2 whole chickens. They turned out perfect. I would give it 5 stars but I had to assemble it for $300 it should have come assembled. Buy one you love it!
