Until the screw motor breaks, or get burn back, or the hopper clogs, or the thermostat goes out... I was set on a trager until i read the reviews. With the wsm i light the charcoal, fill the water, add food and is good for 12-18hr.That's what I thought until we had the opportunity to use a Traeger in the home we rented in Scottsdale over Easter. It literally was as simple as running a gas grill with the benefits of a charcoal grill. My wife was sold.
That's funny, I just stopped yesterday and picked up a pork belly to make some bacon, and we decided to get a pork shoulder too. Gonna split it up and try a few different recipes for carnitas! Happy meating!All I can say, is walking through the Costco meat department has a whole new meaning now.
I bought these two gems last night, and they are going on at 5am tomorrow. I hope to have them ready for guests around happy hour!! I also attempted a firmware update on the new controller. It seems to be up to date for now as it held.

Thanks I’ll keep this in mind if the issue persists.@Weeb
Not a plug, you need to pull out the old one, match the new wires up to the old one, and wire nut them together. I silicone'd the wire nut to make it a bit weather resistant. IIRC, they give you a wiring schematic, and there's 3-5 wires (can't remember exactly) to connect. Nothing difficult at all. It can be done in 15 minutes, and that's if you're a slow reader LOL
I have had tons of smokers over the years. I even built my own, that I competed with, a backwoods clone. I currently own 3 smokers. My Yoder pellet pooper, my backwoods clone, and a WSM 22inch. On my clone and wsm, I use a BBQ guru - Digi Que. The absolute best briskets I have ever cooked, came off the WSM. That is a great smoker for not a lot of money. I love my pellet pooper, having had one for 20 years plus. You set the fire ring up on a WSM right with a guru and it will run perfect for the entire cook of a brisket. If you light the entire ring and not just one side, you will have to reload fuel. I find it hard to beat a water smoker in cooking. I typically will put a water pan in my Yoder when cooking brisket in it.Until the screw motor breaks, or get burn back, or the hopper clogs, or the thermostat goes out...
