Well the new weber did great 2 pork butts on 1 shelf and 2 racks on the other with some room to spare. It ran a little hotter than I like but i will figure that out as i use it more.I was surprised but the bowl holds almost 3 gallons of water and the fire ring almost 1 bag of charcoal (HUMPHREY"S CHARCOAL) and ran just about 9 hours without refueling.While that was happening i built a cold smoke to attach to my smaller wsm at work to smoker all of our own bacon and other things as the menu changes.I going to give the cold smoker a dry run tomorrow to see if it will work
and also to season the barrel.

Well i just picked up the 22" wsm going to give it it's first trial run this week .Also we want to congratulate all the New england teams who competed and did very well at "The Jack"

.Hopefully we will be able to get there. My first hope for this year is to be accepted and compete at harpoon. I'm using my old wsm to convert to a cold smoker parttime to make bacon for work. I'm also talking with chad from humphrey's charcoal about building a new smoker similar to my backwoods but hopefully better designed.
