Wsm 18 pick up
« on: February 25, 2018, 05:38:57 PM »
Picked up my 1st ever smokey mountain! Cleaned up good, still need to detail a bit more
Never thought I would consider a WSM but here it is.
DR date code 2006.
Does this model require a bottom heat shield?
Also are the air vent dampers sold separately?
It's a 18 WSM

Congratulations! That is a mighty fine cooker!

To answer your questions:

You don't need a heat shield. I believe they were introduced in 2009. As long as you aren't cooking on a wooden deck, no need to worry.

You can pick up dampers from Weber or from an aftermarket supplier : https://www.grillparts.com/weber/weber-smokey-mountain-parts.asp?product_id=63015
