Navigating The Website

Keep The Site Free! Click Here To Shop

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 Shopping link features the best barbecue products, books, and accessories available from All purchases help to defray the cost of bringing you this website. See Support The Virtual Weber Bullet for more details.

When you click on a section link, the background turns orange, indicating that you're now in that section. If you click on an article in that section, the background stays orange to remind you that you're still in that section.
