Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HOMEYDFD Finally got into the smoker game!!
Ok this is a late review because I bought this smoker during the Super bowl to smoke a brisket. WOW is all I can say! First setting up the smoker was super easy, added wheels for mobility, and honestly right out the box it held temperature without any major adjustments. Had to add charcoal about 4-5 hours into my cook. Not bad if I must say,. Super easy to use and maintain temp for any long cook. Also did baby back ribs, but left them on too long. Smoked for about two hours then wrapped them in foil for another three and they literally fell off the bone. Way too done for me. Used Apple and Hickory wood chunks. Also held temp even when it was cold out, I think I was in the low 30's that day so I can imagine how much better it should perform in warmer weather. Even thinking about entering some competitions in the near future! Overall a solid investment so if you are on the fence trust me you won't be disappointed!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Whale Weber Smokey mountain grill
I recently purchased the weber smokey mountain and the smoker is awesome with (1) exception a $400.00 smoker with a $2.00 door unacceptable. I had seen reviews on the door on line but until I received my grill I couldn't believe how cheap and uneven the door is I love the grill but hate the door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MickHLR These Weber Smokey Mountain Smokers Should Cost Twice as Much
I've been smoking meat on an offset stick burner for years...and it has done well. The problem is, it worked me to death, because it wouldn't hold temp for very long. That is not the case with this 22.5" WSM. I've cooked on it 4 times so far, including two overnight cooks, and it has been amazing. On both overnight cooks, I went to bed and left it alone all night...no problem, still holding temp the next morning. I could never do that with an offset. The last overnight pork butt I smoked was a 9 pounder that took 14 hours at 235*. The WSM never waivered. I did use one large bag of Kingsford, but only one of my normal post oak splits that I use on the offset, cut up into fist sized chunks. For a 14 hour smoke on the offset, I would've used 22-25 splits. It has almost twice the cooking surface of the XL BGE, but at 1/3 the price. I added the wheels myself...very simple mod. The only problem I see with the 22.5" WSM is it's making me lazy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chadly0341 Amazing!
I have owned my WSM 22.5 for about a year now. This smoker is simply amazing! It gets up to temp very quickly and is easy to control using the vents. Very glad I spent a little extra for the 22.5, because I know I would have wanted to upgrade by now. You cannot go wrong with this if you are serious about smoking some of the best bbq of your life.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will74 Very happy with my decision to go with the Smoky Mountain Cooker
I bought my Weber Smoky Mountain Cooker about six weeks ago and I have used it every weekend since. Assembly wasn't bad and the smoker is definitely the quality I've come to expect from Weber. I did have to drive a little to find the 22.5" model since most stores in my area stock only the 18.5" but I feel like the extra cooking area was well worth the drive and extra $100. So far, ribs, brisket, wings, whole chickens and Boston butt have all been successes. The only issue I see is that my Weber Genesis gas grill is getting a little jealous.

Love smoking on the WSM. Holds temp really well and it's easily adjustable when necessary. And LOTS of room for whatever you wan't to cook.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave198 So far I love it!
Beef rids and chicken, Check! Working my way up to a brisket!
Good smoke, temperature was easy to maintain and plenty of room. The only negative think I have is the door. It not a flush fit when closed which allows smoke out and might change air flow. Putting on a gasket is a easy fix to the door leakage!
