    Knowing Weber's reputation I am sure that the 14.5 WSM will fill the needs of those who need a "smaller" smoker...I on the other hand love my 18.5.
     
  4. I bought one Saturday to go with the 18.5 size i have.  honestly haven't used it yet... but when I was at Ace hardware and could see the size difference i bought it on the spot.  this is a PERFECT size for when you just want to smoke for one meal or so.  Or smaller items like wings and legs etc...  Would no doubt fit a couple nice sized chickens in it at the same time.

    as usual the build of the Weber is just superb.  Love the rubber grommet now for temp probes.

    I bought the 14.5 WSM the other week....used on Sunday and apart from being a little small it is really easy to use. I smoked some ribs and chicken and only used a fire basket and a chimney full for 7hrs and the charcoal was still going strong 2hrs after. I have been used to a vertical gas smoker i made but i have to say i enjoy using the WSM [​IMG]

    I have the 14.5 wsm as well and new to smoking, how many wood chunks should I use, I'm looking for just a mild smoke flavor

    As well, should I fire up my loaded chimney and dump it in, and this should be sufficient for the entire smoke?

    How many wood chunks/chips -you're gonna have to figure out your personal preference.
