I started the WSM at 10 PM Saturday night. Filled the ring as much as possible. Cooked a brisket, two pork butts, and after they were off, two boneless turkey breasts. Added 15 briqs. with the birds -- didn't have to! It's 5:30pm Sunday, and it's still running at 240!!! I am so impressed...not to mention HAPPY HAPPY I bought it! Qview coming soon....I promise!
