Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by flyhard Weber Quality
Weber has a great following of people who only buy Weber products and for a good reason. Their products are of the best quality and will last a long time. I use mine for smoking ribs and have no problem controlling the heat. I have easy access to add more coals or water and the grilling area is large enough to grill 4 complete racks of ribs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeepsters The smoke created makes you hungry.
I added wheels to help with moving the smoker from storage to the outdoors. I suggest the swivel wheel set in the Home Depot storage shelves area.
I then broke in the new smoker with one 20# turkey, 2 hens, 2 slabs of ribs and 8 short ribs. All cooked to perfection in 9 hours.
Hint, do not add water until the temp is in the smoke range otherwise, the smoker will take longer to cook the meat.

Ordered this online at HomeDepot.ca - received VERY quickly and vey easily. The WSM Smoker is the best there is for the money, and this 22" ne simply adds to the lineup (the 18" would satisfy all but us BBQ nuts.)
Thanks HD for the pleasant buying experience, and thanks Weber for the product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reddogm Best there is
Simply so much better than the competition that is worth every penny...I added an IQ10 temperature controller and nothing but perfect resulst with no babysitting required...just light it, go away and it will be ready when you return...very economical on charcoal if you use an IQ10...there is enough rack space to do 8 backs of baby back ribs or 10 lbs of jerky at one time...it is everything you could ask for

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JenRN Love this smoker!
Love the smoker! It assembled fast and is well made. Love the water bowl as it helps keep meat juicy on those super long smokes like Boston Butt or brisquet. It has plenty of room for large roasts and birds (we smoked a Boston Butt and a 11 pound chicken on the same rack!). It maintains the heat level and the temperature gauge in the lid is great! Love my Smokey Mountain! Happy smokin' y'all!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KALT22 Excellent Product
I am very happy with my Weber Smoker. It is easy to use and is a great smoker for someone starting out or for someone who has been smoking for a long time.
The 22in is worth the extra price becuase you can place 3 full racks of ribs flat on the grate.
I would highly reccomend this to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TrapperJohn Easy to use, fabulous results
So far I cooked a brisket, baby back ribs, and chicken wings. All were unbelievably great! Cooker was easy to assemble and easy to use. Keeping the temperature to the proper level was no problem. I look forward to my next project since food on the smoker is so much better than on the gas grill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrJoe Big Bad Smokey Mountain
First off, it’s solidly built and all the parts fit together well. The only slight disappointment is fuel door, which is poorly made. It sadly seems like an afterthought, as its flimsy and does not fit well. However, it can be bent into place, and over multiple cooks it starts to seal itself to the shape of the smoker. As far as I am concerned, it has not had a noticeable impact on cooking, but it is more annoying than anything.
On the positive side, the charcoal bowl system, and multiple dampers allow for easy adjustments to temperature. After having used less expensive smokers, where I struggled to adjust the temperature, this is so easy that it feels like cheating. You can set it and it will stay locked in easily within a 5-10 degree range. The only downside temperature wise I have experienced is that it’s been difficult keeping the temperature below 265-275. I have however only used the smoker twice, and as I have heard from other reviewers that as the smoker becomes seasoned after many uses it becomes easier to control.
I also caution you to be aware of the size, surprisingly 22.5” model is substantially bigger than 18.5” model, and subsequently the cleaning and temperature control is a little harder to handle. I had to order this and have it delivered to my Home Depot store, so I did not see it until I got it home and out of the box. My advice is to see the smoker first in person before purchasing. You can get quite a bit of mileage out of the 18.5” with 1-2 rib racks, or even if you are cooking on the 14.5” if you configure it right, you can get decent mileage out of your cooking volume. The 22.5” in my opinion is built to cook for a small army, which makes it awesome, but a bit cumbersonme. My advice is to see them in person and see what would best fit your cooking needs size wise.

The smoker is large enough for just about smoking "project". We used it twice in the first week and are still getting used to regulating the temperature but are very pleased with the results so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bbqbobby Works Great!
Finally moved out of an apartment and into a house and decided to get a smoker to celebrate. Cooked an 11 lb brisket on the ol' girl that turned out amazing. Easy to assemble, held temperature well and it doesn't take up near as much space as an offset smoker. Home Depot shipped it for free and it actually came in two days early. Couldn't be more pleased with this purchace.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by teddy Great Smoker for the money
I smoked a 15lb of pork butt, I had it split into 2 different chunks. It turned out great.
I thought i would use more charcaol than i did ....smoke time was 12 hours and I only used about 2/3 of bag of charcoal.
i was easy to adjust the tempature of the unit.
the thermometer that comes with the unit is worthless, need to buy a good digital smoker to monitor the tempature accuratly.

Set it and forget it. Once you get a little used to this product and understand the air flow you can easily walk away from it for 4 hours, easily. I was able to put 8, 5 lb butts on it with no problem, set it up, took a shower, adjusted it and went to work. Got home late afternoon and threw a little more lump on and bam! Pulled pork for 70 people.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shermanator Great quality smoker, great smoked meat!
With very limited experience, was able to produce some great smoked meat from the WSM out of the box! The 22.5" is big (maybe too big for what I need on a regular basis), but the extra size doesn't hamper my smaller smoke batches, plus I will easily be able to smoke two large turkeys at the same time for Thanksgiving!

Great smoker. Easy to use even for beginner. I used it 3 times since. 4 racks of ribs, or 2 racks + 9 lb pork butt with no problem.

If you're looking for a smoker that's pretty much set it and forget it, this is for you. Solid design and quality parts we've come to expect from Weber. Let this smoker "season" for a few cooks, and the part interface leaks will seal right up.

I have used it twice and am very pleased with it. The temperature stays fairly uniform requiring less management time. Still learning the ropes of smoking and this is proving to be a good one to learn on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CapnDonkey Best Smoker HANDS. DOWN.
Can't say enough good things about the WSM 22.5". Set up was a snap, and we were smoking the same day. It's like it comes out of the box at 250 degrees and holds it temps like no other smoker I've ever owned. If you're serious about your BBQ, you need a WSM.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SmokingDad Exceeds all my expectations
Easy to load, easy to add water, huge capacity....only negative I can think of is that it's hard to move from its storage spot to where I want to use it because of its heavy duty construction. ...wheels on it would be nice.

I'm sure you can find other smokers at a lower cost but the quality of Weber's manufacturing process makes this smoker one that will last for a long time. It arrived on schedule, and was easy to assemble. I'm very happy with this purchase.

I bought the WSM online and it was at my front door within 3 days. Assembly was a breeze. I smoked a brisket 2 days after opening the box and let me tell you....AMAZING! This is my 3rd Weber product and they still have not let me down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steamboat Worth it!
Fantastic smoker. After experimenting with foil balls on the grill, then using the classic bullet smoker that everyone has because of the price - this thing is a Rolls Royce. The Brinkman was small, and I did a lot of modifications just to get decent BBQ. Now, with the WSM our BBQ's have become a tradition with friends. Extremely well put together, durable, moveable (although I'd recommend taking it apart in the sections and moving). The only two downsides are that the thermometer reads about 19 degrees lower than actual temp (but that is much better than the "warm/ideal/hot" on the Brinkman) plus you really need a quality meat thermometer anyways. My only other issue is that you need 2 hands to take the top off. Maybe that's just because the quality is so good that it locks itself in place? Only "modifications" I've done here were placing a 9 inch stone in the center of the grate and horseshoe my coal around that. Dump your hot coals on the one end and you have great fuel for several hours. I also purchased a gasket kit. May be overkill but we use this thing a ton. I can't recommend this enough. Spring for the larger one, as I feel you may regret not getting it once you use the 18in and get addicted. I can't stress enough how well the temperature control is on this.
