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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 22 1/2 " Weber Smoker Great smoker. Does an great job and very easy to use. And, does not take up a lot of room.
Date published: 2014-07-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Solid Smoker! 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality doesn't cost it saves you in the long run 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easier to use than I even expected This smoker was incredible. I used this product on memorial day for the first time. I went onto you-tube to get some pointers on how to use it. It took me about 20 minutes to get the temp to 225, and it locked in on that steady for 5 1/2 hrs. I barely had to touch the vents. At first I thought the temp gauge was not working right because it was so easy. Everything cooked right on the money, chicken thighs and polish sausage took about 3 hrs, and a 6 lb. chicken and a 10 lb. chicken took about 5 hrs. everything was very moist and delicious! This smoker is incredible, and worth every penny! You can get less expensive ones but you wont get the ease and the performance you will with this one. While everything was cooking I was able to just sit back and play scrabble with my kids, and 5 hrs later we ate!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First ever smoke I thought I smoked too long but,... WOW!!! My first ever smoke was spare ribs. I smoked them for 5 ½, almost 6 hours. I had to leave towards the end and when I came back everything was just fine. I used a brown sugar based rub so it created an awesome bark. It started off a little hot but after about 45 minutes It STAYED between 225 and 250. I used a flat base of un-lit Stubbs all natural charcoals and a full weber chimney of lit charcoal. I smoked 3 full racks of ribs. I did not turn or flip them at all. The ribs turned out perfect. My family loved them. I'll be doing a lot more for Memorial Day 2015.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 is everything you could ask for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it 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 out of 5 by from 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.
