    All I can say is this smoker rocks[​IMG], it's everything you guys said and more. Got it fired up with 90 to 100 bricketts unlit and used chimney starter for the same amount. seasoned chicken with lemmon pepper and some chicken seasoning, for the wood i used something new to me...Texas roadhouse, it's a mixture of hickory, oak and apple chips,{i usally use chunks} put the hot water in and closed it up and started rockin at 225 to 230 in no time and was so easy to maintain the heat. Cooked for 3 hrs. and 45 min. Chicken was very moist and very tender...wife was very pleased. I was very impressed with this smoker[​IMG]...a little pricey for me but I DON'T CARE....now lets see if i can get these pics to load right this time, thanks to everyone for there contributions to this website...very very informative....waiting for Jeff to post some more of his experiments with the wsm...lol. Bought ibp spareribs at sams today...tomorrow...yeah cant wait...more q view to come IMG]http://i795.photobucket.com/albums/yy234/trackdog/wsm chicken/chicken034.jpg[/IMG] IMG]http://i795.photobucket.com/albums/yy234/trackdog/wsm chicken/chicken035.jpg[/IMG]

    You did good, don't worry about it. Your chicken looks great, that's what matters most.

    I normally fill the ring up on the WSM (mines the 18") and when I'm done I close all the vents. What charcoal is left I use for the next smoke, no waste.

    Well I'm sure if the bird comes out looking like those two you will be really good with the fire in no time.[​IMG]

    That bird came out so great looking, all I can say is WOW! And don't worry about if you did good or not. You licked your fingers after the bird was gone, didn't you? Alright then. On to the next smoke on your new toy!!!!! [​IMG][​IMG]

    nice looking first run.

    checking out the manual is smart, but stick around on SMF, more and more folks getting the WSM, and alot of info here.

    For me to do a 10 hour smoke using lump & wood it costs about $6 +/-
