So after seeing the Weber WSM 14.5" at Walmart in Gaylord on the way to the in laws last night, I started seriously thinking about it for camping. Got in the tvwbb.com forum to see what the small smoker is capable of, and read some are finding it as cheap as $100 or even $50 on clearance, marked down from $200.....
So a call to the store this morning revealed I have a Weber problem, as I ran back to the store and bought the assembled display model complete with manual and cover for $50!!!!!
Now I no longer need to lug the larger 18.5" WSM when we want some awesome smoked dinners....
Here is a pic of the 3 pork butts I smoked last week while camping at Higgins Lk in Northern Michigan. They totaled just under 27lbs.
I figure as long as I can get 2 butts on the 14.5" that are 16-20lbs total I will be good to go.
Just need to see if I can store it in the 32 somewhere.
So if anyone is considering the small 14.5" WSM, check your local Walmart for a "smokin' price"!!!
