Customer Questions & Answers

There is no tray for wood chips on this model? Can I use wood chips?

I am buying this for my brothers bday and it will be his first smoker. He loves to grill large for his huge family and likes to use wood chips. With no tray, can he still use the chips? Can I have this shipped his house in GA, is there a fee? Also, is this difficult to assemble? If yes, can I pay for the smoker to be assembled?
Asked by: GiftForBro
Wood Chunks work better. But chips can also be used. I threw my chips on the coals, but it seems like it gets consumed way too fast. So I have seen on the internet that some users filled a coffee can with chips and placed that in the middle of the charcoal pan, and then surrounded the coffee can with lit coals.

Can't decide 18.5 or 22.5

I'm new to smoking food. I have tried it on my weber genesis grill which turned out fine but I want to smoke turkeys for thanksgiving and I think WSM would be the better way to go but what size should I get? I've read that the 22.5 burns alot of fuel and is hard to maintain temps. where as the 18.5 wont hold large meats like whole racks of ribs you have to cut them in half which is no big deal but will it hold a turkey? Or turkeys?
Asked by: Anonymous
crodon963, By all means get the 22.5" model, you won't be sorry! It's better to have a little to much room than not enough when you need it. You can Barbecue small or large on the 22.5' Smokey Mountain Cooker, use less fuel to cook smaller amounts of food! Hope this helps with you're question!

How difficult is it to add wood or charcoal during you cook?

Is there enough space between the water pan and the fire box to easily add fuel to the fire?
Asked by: Tigerbassin77
Not difficult at all. Just open the side door, and pop them in.

22-1/2 in. Smokey Mountain Cooker Smoker is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 131.

My husband got an electric MasterBuilt smoker for Christmas and it broke by September, they did send a new part and tried to help fix it but it about blew all the electrical in my house, soooooo....... I found this Weber smoker (my husband loves Weber) he said he would give it a try. He LOVES this smoker! It is HUGE! His ribs fit with plenty of room. It was easy to assemble and heavy. The cover isn't a cheap "free" cover, it is a really nice cover and he even built a shelter for his, ha! I wish he would have started out with this one, but live and learn. You will NOT be disappointed in this smoker. If I had to say anything not positive it would be the amount of charcoal it uses. That is a DUH, it's huge.

The WSM is a great product, and Home Depot delivered it to the store ahead of estimated delivery date, so thank you for great customer service. I considered buying a BGE, but a friend who has this WSM gave it great reviews, and I went with it. I don't regret my decision. I can smoke meats and veggies in this smoker, easily. Whether it's a rather short smoke, 3-4 hours for a whole turkey, or a longer burn, 8-10 hours for a pork butt or 10-12 hours for a brisket, the WSM does it effortlessly. Even in cold temps, I've been able to do a long burn of 10 hours without refueling. I highly recommend the WSM. It's so good, that I got a second WSM, the 18-1/2 in.

My product arrived on the wings of the Valkyrie's winged horse granting me the powers of the Norse Gods to create magical items of the smoked food nature. Once the item was put together (easy directions praise Odin) and the spirit of Thor was placed in my magical item created smoke to the heavens that lasted all day on a single bag of charcoal. While some may complain that the door on the side is of flimsy material and allows the smoke of the gods to escape I like to believe that my offering is being shared with me as well. I look forward to using this device for many years to come and it joins the pantheon of many smokers residing in my backyard offering golden delicious meals and smells to all who worship.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid cooker, but needs some improvements This is a great cooker but I'm surprised that given all the well-known leak issues that Weber have not made any improvements to the design. The aluminum door doesn't sit flush with the cooker and also doesn't help retain heat as well. There were still leaks from where the lid sits on the cooker after a half dozen cooks. What you'll need to get is the stainless steel door and some nomex insulation tape to make this cooker super solid. On a 15.4 lb bag of Kingsford blue, I've been able achieve around 15 hours at 225F.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time user This smoker is so easy to use but the assembly instructions leave a lot to be desired. Once it's together, Add lots of unlit charcoal in the bottom. Dump prelit coals ontop, put the center section, cooking grates and lid on, adjust vents for desired heat, slap your meat on and your smoking!! I made 4 racks of baby back ribs in 4 1/2 hours and they tasted like I was a pit master! You can not go wrong with this water smoker. It holds temperature forever also!

My son in law has one and uses it in competition BBQ contests. The only issue I had was to buy the 18" or 22". He talked me into the bugger unit. I had it shipped to the local Home Depot store and they put it all together. The only thing I had to do was start smoking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome smoker This smoker is great! I added a guru control, gasket kit, lid hinge kit, and a guru control. This thing holds temp right on the money. I have cooked ribs and chicken so far All had great smoke taste and nice and juicey! Love this grill so much I bought my dad one to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cooker It holds steady temps and the food has great flavor. I did buy a different, more heavy duty door for it that I found online and will add a BBQ Guru to make temp control even easier. I may add a hinge assembly for the lid too, but that's it. Great cooker...
