  1. I'm a new WSM owner and joined this forum to learn the ins and outs of this new addiction of mine.  Hopefully someday I'll be able to share what I've leaned from this awesome site!

    Welcome to the forums, Ernie!  This is the best place I know for sharing ideas on smoking, grilling, curing, etc.  There are plenty of friendly, knowledgeable folks who really enjoy helping one another.  Just ask when you need help and someone here will have the answer.

  4. Thanks all for the warm welcome!  I'm expecting to learn a lot from the fine folks here at the SMF.

  5. Glad you joined the group. The search bar at the top of any page is your best friend.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would you mind updating your profile to show the other SMF members where you are located?  Might meet a few neighbors!

    Also check out ”Jeff's Free 5 day E-Course”, it will teach you bunches no matter your experience level!

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!

    Hey there, i am from chandler too. I also have the WSM 22.5" bullet smoker. Great smoker! Make sure to double check your factory temp gauge on that thing, mine was WAY off. Good luck ! And post some pics up when u get to smoking!
  10. Hello neighbor!  When I ordered my WSM, I also ordered a Redi-Chek ET-73.  I had about a 50 deg. difference in temps.  The Redi-Check was measuring grill temp as opposed to the factory gauge reading lid temp.  I checked the Redi-Check for calibration (boiling water) and it was pretty close.  I've read that the lid temps can be somewhat higher than grill temps???  Bottom line is, I'm depending on the Redi-Check to give me accurate readings.  Thanks for the heads-up.

    I'll take some photos of my next smoke.
