First overnight
« on: September 16, 2017, 07:43:54 PM »
All the talk of how long the wsm can go on a load of fuel had me pumped up to try an overnight cook. Pork butt was on sale so I went with that. Trying out meijer brand. Full load of weber coal and apple wood. About an hour in and the fabled inaccurate dome thermometer is reading exactly what the maverick is.

I remember my first overnight. The nervousness, the giddy anticipation, the unrealistic expectations, the neglected meat, anticlimactic ending, the weird aftertaste, the neighborhood shame afterwards, the uncomfortable explanations later on.

Oh wait you're cooking food instead, right?
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

Temp last night


Temp this morning.


They are at 177 internal and looking good. The wsm is working as advertised. I gave the coals a stir and time to make coffee.

25 degree drop over night, you can't do any better.  Nice

My first overnight as well. There was a forecast of rain so I guided the thermo wires under the 18in (it was a free pickup) to keep it water out tight :)

I haven't tasted yet, still a couple hours to go, I just foiled it though. Started the fire at 10pm.. adjusted till temp at 11pm and put the meat on. Started at 250 and I woke up at 7 and it was hovering around there. Very happy compared to my old crappy smoker.. this is only my 2nd time using the WSM.

That's a great idea using the 18 to house the thermometer.  I was doing the same things at the same times you were. I was maybe 1/2 hour behind. The internal is in the 180's right now. That's a whole lot of cajun bandit door on that 22.

I got really lucky and scored mine for 25. I added the door and thermometer which added another 75 though.

I got the WSM used on Facebook marketplace for $225. I really wanted one, as I was saving up to purchase it new for $400 a week later or so. I don't see them pop up often and this one included the CB door and charcoal ring. The guy I bought it from might even be on this site, so if you see this.. thank you!

That's a damn good deal. I have never seen a 22 pop up in my area.

I pulled the meat and closed the vents but after 12 hours I STILL had plenty of fuel. I now understand what makes a wsm great. I will say the weber coal is great stuff. I only stirred the coals once in the morning. When I was using kbb, it needed stirred more often from ash build up

I used the Weber coals for the first time as well.. used a whole bag actually. I never had to stir them up but there is approx 2 chimney's worth of used ash left. The vents are closed off and the meat is off and resting in a cooler with a towel right now.. it smells good!

I cracked the vents right after closing them to see how long it would go and to keep it going for beans and Mac and cheese later. It's going on 14.5 hours now. It's my wife's birthday.
