I gifted my previous 18Ē WSM away and then this one followed me home from Tampa.  Guess it was meant to be.

Did you get it just like that or do you have the bowl?  I hadnít thought of trying that configuration.  @mr.cpho

The WSM came complete with the original WSM bowl,  but I like the mobility of stacking it on a midget setup.  After seeing a post this week of a mystery SJ with leg sockets, Iím wondering if I could weld sockets onto the original WSM bowl to retain the stock vent positions. 

On a side-note, this older ďEOĒ WSM has a shallower water bowl/heat deflector, which I like.

I have some leg sockets if you want them. They are of an old MBH I found at the dump.

As much as I love cooking on a 22" kettle, 18" kettles are a must for any true grillfella.

I picked up this 18 a couple three weeks ago.  Vent code is DU (2002).
Everything is in excellent condition, including the thumb-screw ash sweeps. I was very happy with that.  :D

This simple and classic look is what it's all about, IMO.
