    Haven't posted to the board in a long time. Had a bradley digital, it flaked on about the 5th use, so it got returned. Bought a Landmann 30" electric. Liked it, but didn't love it? Luckily, bought at costco, and about 10 months later (and probably only 20 uses) i took it back. Full refund, and went down the street and bought a 22.5" WSM. I love the WSM. I smoked today in the May snow (wtf?) About 1C/31F. Smoked for exactly 6 hours, in a rack, at about 225-230 the entire time. I left the house for a few hours and had a temp drop to about 205, but got it back up quickly, and it didn't seem to cause any problems. My wife says there's too much rub on, because it is a little salty. I did 4 racks (in a weber rib rack for the first time ever) and used 4 different types of rub, 2 homemade, 2 store-bought. I rubbed 2 lightly with some stubbs, about 1 hour before they were finished. I will include some pictures in the next post, I am typing this on my computer, but took pics with my phone. I am thrilled with how they turned out, much nicer than with my 2 previous electric smokers. Looked to have great bark, nice pink ring inside, handled the "folding" doneness test like a champ. Taste excellent, not dry at all. This is the first time i've not gone with the 3-2-1 method. Check the pics and any tips and criticisms/etc would be appreciated!

    for people who (like me) tend to glaze over a post: pics to follow, posting from my phone.

    Those look great.  Excellent job.

    May snow??  I've had my AC running for almost a month already.

    hey thanks, i was very happy with them, and all my friends who ate them were very impressed, they've been eating my bbq the whole year or so i've been smoking. they are all seeing serious improvement and quite enthusiastic about my grilling.

    we don't need AC here, we get 2 weeks of hot weather a year. and i don't mean 2 consecutive weeks, i mean 14 total days, hah.

    i grew up in a climate of 85F+ April-September, but unfortunately, that is no longer the case.
