I am right there with you! I smoked two yesterday. I smoked hotter than normal 260-280 and wrapped them. Turned out great!

It's the first time I'm using it for this long of a cook. I usually use the snake for ribs very successfully. The 2 wide x 3 high snake holds rock solid at 140 for a good 4 - 5 hours. I've had to refuel 3x today so I'm not sure I'll use it again for this long of a cook. I'm 12 hours in and close to finishing.

Jmitchell418;   I use the modified-minion (I think that's what it's called) method mostly.  Full load of coal, rock solid temp, long (or short) cooking times.  If short, just snuff out the coals and use again.  'Tis easy and repeatable.  Give it a try :)

How much do you start with in the chimney? Full or half? And then you pour in a pile in the center or spread out over top of the unlit coals?  Thanks!

It's all spelled out on the tvww site; but here is the short version, I fill the charcoal ring, take 40-50 out of the center, put em in the starter and bring em up to the ashed point.  Now I dumps em back into the crater that I took em from.  Put the WSM back together, open the vents and monitor the temp for the temp you want to use.   When I did the turkey I cook at 325-350, so I had to start with more that the usual 40-50.   Give it a try, what ya got to lose   ...   a few charcoal briquettes.  Have fun ...
