Your WSM body might not be tall enough to hang ribs. You probably might have to rig a hanger rod at least a few inches above your main grate level. Easy to fabricate with some rebar and a welder.

What I will smoke this weekend will depend on what I find appealing at Restaurant Depot tomorrow morning. Nice BBQ weather here coming up this weekend.

Just ordered a WSM 22.5 for my first smoker as a combined birthday present from a few family members. I don't know what the hell I'm doing, but I think it is going to be fun learning. I think this thread is largely responsible for my interest.

You'll be fine, WSM's are pretty easy to use. If MACS can crank out good bbq with one, anyone can.

Virtual bullet has some step-by-step recipes w/ vent positions and all here:
http://virtualweberbullet.com/cook.html

If you aren't familiar with the "Minion method" of lighting and fueling, it has some significant advantages over the methods presented in the book that comes with the WSM:

Thanks, Adam! Can you recommend me a good digital thermometer?

It depends on what you want from the thermometer.

If you want remote temps, then the Maverick ET372 w/ dual probes (one for the meat, one for the cooking chamber, aka "the pit") seems to be a popular choice.

If you are thinking about getting an automatic draft controller for the WSM, both the Stoker Controller and the DigiQ units have multiple thermometers built in, as they need to monitor both pit temp and meat temp to be able to control the blower properly. Some units have remote reading capability via ethernet / wireless network.

If your lid gauge is calibrated, and once you get to know your smoker, you can do a lot with just a digital pen thermometer. The Thermopens are excellent, but pricey.

Excellent, thanks. I'm just looking for the first option you mentioned. I'm not thinking of automatic draft control just yet. Thanks a lot!

That was some wind. I noticed my dog is sleeping on my smoker cover this morning. Didn't want to disturb
him to fuss at him. WASTED another weekend. Sure wish Ribs would go on sale. There have been 2 "SALES"
this year already, both of them were surely some kind of joke.

I just got a Maverick ET732 as a belated Christmas present from my dad. This thing ROCKS. I can play with my kids now instead of babysitting the smoker! Just bring the remote unit wherever you are (within something like 300 feet) and you have smoker temp/meat temp at the touch of a button. You can also set max/min temp alerts, so you aren't overcooking anything. I've only used it to smoke a pork loin so far, but it came out awesome - super flavorful and juicy. Previous pork loins always were a touch on the dry side. Cant wait to try it with a pork butt or brisket.

Mine also came with a temp guide, which is stuck to the side of my fridge. This is the one I got:

Glad to hear the review! Mine just arrived the other day. Still waiting to do my first smoke. I'l be gone this weekend, so it's looking like the weekend after. Trying to decide whether to do baby backs for 12 people as a first run or whether I should experiment on my own a bit before subjecting other people to my final product.
