I know that some of you out there have a good sense of humor and the creative and technical skills necessary to put the WSM into some funny situations. Hey, you might even capture some real-life WSM humor with your camera in your backyard or at a contest. Send them in to TVWB and I'll add them to this collection.



1950s-era family with WSMThis 1950s-era family from Arizona enjoys some quality time together as Dad tends the WSM. There's nothing quite like barbecuing in 110°F weather while wearing a dress shirt and slacks.

MK 15 Phalanx Close-In Weapons SystemThis declassified U.S. Navy photo shows a highly modified MK 15 Phalanx Close-In Weapons System (CIWS). The "sea-whiz" consists of a rotating cluster of six barrels capable of firing up to 4,500 red-hot coals per minute.

A Navy spokesman, speaking off-the-record, said, "Lump burns hotter, but briquettes offer more firepower."

Flaying the WSM water panFrom the television show Boy Meets Grill on the Food Network. The episode was called "Boy Meets Texas Girl" and aired in 2004. Bobby Flay makes brisket with his girlfriend Stephanie March and places the water pan directly on top of the charcoal chamber full of hot coals and wood chips. A classic WSM moment!

Inside-out WSM at The Home Depot

A member of The Virtual Weber Bulletin Board saw this Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker at a Home Depot store in New Jersey. Probably a special order for a customer that backed out of the deal.

Cool new feature: Four tool hangers. Unfortunately, the cooking grates and water pan keep falling into the fire!
