Hands down the most fun smoking I've had.

Have not had to worry about maintaining temp with this model/brand. Smoke time duration without readding charcoal is great. We'll worth the time and energy researching this one.

Game changer

I rarely take the time to review a product unless it's just terrible or amazing. This smoker is amazing. I watched a few YouTube videos and made the purchase on Friday afternoon. Saturday morning I went and picked up three slabs of baby backs and an 8 pound pork butt. I got the fire started and the vents set and it held right at 225. Put on three pieces of cherry wood and got it smoking very nicely. I rubbed the ribs and pork butt generously with a homemade rub and threw them on the smoker. Using the 3-2-1 method, the ribs turned out rediculous. They were amazing. I took the pork butt off at 160 and wrapped it as well as adding some apple juice. At 200 I took it off and had some equally amazing pulled pork. The smoker held at 225 for 10 plus hours without adding and charcoal. I had to open up the vents towards the end to maintain heat, but the smoker performed flawlessly. More than excited about this purchase. The quality is weber. An iconic American company. Forgot to mention this was my very first time smoking!

A great smoking machine

I have had my 22" WSM since early Oct 2014.
On average I use it at least a couple times a month.
I have smoked briskets, pork butts, sausages, ribs, chickens, turkeys, and nuts.
Right from the beginning the temperature has been very easy to control.
When I cook brisket I do it overnight and the temperature holds so well I get a full night's sleep.
A full load of charcoal will hold 220 for up to 16 hours if the wind is calm.
I know there are much less expensive cookers that appear to be similar but they are not the same.
The porcelain steel is very high quality, the grates are heavy duty and the chrome plating is excellent.
If you are on the fence just take a breath and buy yourself one.
I really like the 22" model, full racks of ribs, and full packer briskets fit without being scrunched, cut, or folded.

my 3rd WSM

I bought two WSM 22.5's to smoke 8 pork shoulders for a graduation party. My first ever smoke and they all came out perfect. Sold one WSM the day after because I didn't need it. Bought a huge gravity fed ($3500) and gave the other WSM to my bro. I hated the gravity fed and sold it to buy another WSM 22.5.

I have cooked pork shoulder, brisket, ribs (beef, pork), chicken, turkey, sausage. If you are on the fence about a smoker just get the WSM and don't look back. I produced amazing BBQ with the WSM and it holds temp with very little effort.

The WSM makes outdoor cooking easy!

I have used this WSM for a couple years now and can't live without it. It sits on my deck along side a prep table and Weber Kettle grill as my out door cooking setup. I have done everything from drying jerky, slow smoking buckboard bacon, slab bacon, Summer Sausage, kielbasa, pepperoni, snack sticks, etc to pulled pork, and higher heat turkey, chicken, and brisket using all sorts of recipes from this site, in Weber cookbooks, and elsewhere. My family and friends reap the benefits of my cooking hobby and the WSM makes it easy.

Grilling Expert, but first time smoker

Just wanted to say what an amazing smoker this really is. Assembly was a piece of cake. Soon as I was done with that I loaded her up with 50lbs of charcoal to season, throwing a pound of bacon directly on the coals every 6 hours... and yes I got up in the middle of the night just for this. I let her rip full blast for 24 hours. Two hours after the last bacon load I filled up the water pan, rubbed down two slabs of ribs, added 5lbs or so of random Kentucky wood to the fire and let her rip. Two hours after that I had places to go and people to see. With literally zero attention or fire maintenance, 10 hours later I pulled the best ribs I have had in my entire life off of this smoker. I had to get on here as soon as the pork coma subsided to let anyone know that I could.

I did my homework and bought this smoker instead of the big green egg (it's just a grill people, not a smoker!). In addition to having more cooking space than the largest, xxl big green egg (726sq-in vs 672sq-in, Weber wins) I spent $500 instead of $4000. When I pulled the lid off and saw and smelled those ribs I knew right then and there I would be smoker for life -- and after tasting them, oh my God, I know without a doubt that I bought the best smoker money can buy.

Durability - It's a Weber. Top shelf as I had expected and with this incredible porcelain-enamel finish I know it's going to last forever.

Cooking Performance - Second to none. Got my fire where I wanted it and it stayed right there 10 hours with zero intervention.

Value - Compare this $500 smoker to the $4000 big green egg that people go crazy over. It's better in every measureable way and 1/8th the price.

Overall Quality - It's a Weber. They've always been the best and always will be.

I am over the moon right now with this smoker. If you're in the market for a smoker and you're considering other options, please listen to reason and take it from me that this is the one you want. You can spend a hell of a lot more money on an inferior smoker.

Bad to the bone smoker

This has to be the smoker on the market it's fool proof. This 22.5 will hold temperature 18 hours or more on 20lbs of Kingsford charcoal. I have smoke a 15 lbs brisket and 11 lbs pork shoulder on the same rack and my smoker held 225 to 235 the whole time. And if I have to lift the lid to do anything as soon as put the lid back on it comes back to temp in less than 3 mins. ALL I CAN SAY I LOVE THIS SMOKER I WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR NOTHING. I wish they would make a 26.75 inch smoker I would buy it.

Best Smoker I've Used

I've been smoking for years on a kettle smoker using wood in a fire box. I like it but was tied to it for hours tending it. My brother suggested I get a WSM. I brought one and have used it. I doubt I will use my kettle smoker again. The WSM worked flawlessly. The pork shoulders and brisket turned out as good and I didn't have to babysit it at all. I was concerned it wouldn't give it a real nice smoke but it was every bit as good. I will push the WSM to anyone interested in buying a smoker. The only downside is the flimsy door. And that wouldn't stop me from buying one. The only reason I rated it a 4 on durability was the door. The rest is the top quality Weber is known for. BUY ONE. Get the 22.5'. Nobody ever says "I wish I could put less meat on my smoker".

How did I live without one?

This is the first smoker I have ever bought and I have been wondering for the past few days since buying it, how I have managed without one before?

After a bit of worrying that after an hour of adding charcoal, the temp with all dampers open went straight to "smoke" on the lid thermometer, then started dropping, but after 2 hours, it was over the "smoke" section and had to then adjust the dampers to get the temperature steady at 225F. I used it for the first time yesterday and the single chimney of briquettes I put in to the centre of a "ring" of non-lit briquettes, and it stayed in the "smoking range" for well over 12 hours.

The flat brisket & boston butt were perfect, and using the top grill to slow cook thick sausages instead of using direct heat was a real eye opener as they cooked in the the same amount of time, without the burnt skins. Even 3/4" thick burgers were seared on the Compact first before being placed on the top grill section for 10 minutes or so, so the centre of the burgers remained extremely moist and perfectly cooked.

This is the best £400 I have ever spent & the kitchen oven is now a thing of the past.

Big cooker - long distance cooking without hassle

We love our WSM. Just fill in 20 pounds of charcoals, add the meat and fill the pan with water. This thing runs 15 hours very steady on the temperature.

Due to the large surface it reacts sensitive on temperature changes in winter and some more fuel is consumed. The cooker recovers quick when the wind is not blowing to so much anymore due to the water in the pan. The pan takes 2 gal water. Fits for about 12 hours job, then needes to be replenished. Good advice is not to use cold water, but warm.

We run the cooker pouring in all coals from the beginning and just ignite some coals in the center. Works nice. It takes about an hour to bring in steady temperatures. Then it stays.
