How To Use TVWB

Navigating The Website

At the top of all TVWB pages, you’ll see a series of clickable links. Each link represents a different section of the website.

  • The Home link takes you to the website homepage. This page is updated monthly to feature a new article, a contest drawing, or other information of interest to readers.
  • The Product Info link contains detailed photographs and technical specifications about the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker, including assembly, parts troubleshooting information, and WSM history.
  • The Cooking Topics link contains articles about different types of foods that can be prepared using the WSM. They’re sort of like recipes, but with a lot more detail and commentary. You’ll also find reference articles related to cooking—for example, articles about how to choose a brisket, which smoke woods go best with which meats, and why it’s important to let meat rest after cooking.
  • The Operating Tips & Mods link contains articles about how to operate and modify the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker, including articles on how to fire-up the WSM, how to troubleshoot operating problems, and a FAQ page.
  • The Videos link features a collection of how-to barbecue videos on YouTube.
  • The Resources link features a list of important resource information that I think is helpful to WSM owners, including contact information for Weber Customer Support, where to buy smoke wood, barbecue videos and magazines, and more.
  • The Forums link leads to The Virtual Weber Bulletin Board. This online community is “the place” for WSM owners (and future owners) to discuss this fabulous cooker in a friendly, supportive environment. You’ll find over 30 forums dedicated to barbecuing, grilling, competitions, WSM modifications, recipes, and more.
  • The BBQ Shopping link features my recommendations for the best grills, thermometers, books, and accessories available from Amazon.com and ThermoWorks.
