One thing I did forget to tell you earlier is that when fiddling with a vent on the WSM, wait at least 10 minutes (15 is even better) before you touch the vents again. It's sort of like turning an ocean liner, it takes a little time to see results. If you don't wait, you end up chasing a yo-yo temp up and down. It takes time for the change in air flow to the coals to have any effect at all. Also adjust in small increments

And top vent is open 100% all the time (as others have already told you).

I own two 18.5 WSM's, I can't add much that hasn't been said already. All good advice here. Butt, with the water pan, I wad up a few balls of aluminum foil and place into the bowl, then cover with a sheet of aluminum foil, with a slight indent to catch the drips. It acts as a heat sink / deflector.

Looks great! Ya' done good!!

I use stainless steel bowls from a local kitchen supply store. They work great. Butt, if you stop using water and do the aluminum foil trick I mentioned earlier, no leaks, no issue.

How old is the WSM? It may be under warranty.

If not, I have the older style (2005 model) and the brinkmann charcoal pan fits perfect and holds more water than my old style. I think the newer Weber water pans are deeper so it may not hold more than the current style, but it should fit. The brinkmann part number is 114-0002-0. It is 15 1/16" in diameter.

I just got it used it's pre 2008 I know that because of the shallow water pan and no thermometer on the lid.

Some of the guys here suggested to try to put sand or lava rocks and aluminum foil in instead of water so I'm going to try that first before I get a new pan. I've seen the brinkman pans online but at a higher price than the new Weber ones
