It's helpful hearing from you that these things work. I have always been reluctant to trust them because they are so simple. But I trust you - so I'm getting one :mug:

BTW, you might want to insulate the probe so it doesn't pick up the ambient temp. That's what she said. (thought I'd better get that out of the way :tank:)

Don't over think this. Go rock the fermenter then leave it alone for a week. Check your gravity after a week. If it hasn't changed, then repitch. Aerating and yeast starters will improve the quality...

No doubt in my mind that the WSM is, pound for pound, dollar for dollar, the best smoker on the Market. I have my Horizon, a WSM and an FEC 100 and if I could only have one it would be the WSM

Well, it may be bigger than a WSM, but it would hardly kick its butt. I won first place in chicken at the Illinois State BBQ Championship at Shannon, IL last year on a WSM. Those things rule!!

You can usually download a demo to try it out before hand. I find that I'm just too impatient to figure these programs out so I go with 1.5 qt/lb. I find it's better to have a bit too much water.
