What’s In The Box
The Weber Smokey Mountain smoker arrives in a 76 pound box measuring 41 inches tall and 21 by 19 inches square. Along with the several components of the cooker itself, there’s a weather-proof cover, and buyers of the device have aired very few complaints about the packaging.
Charcoal-heated slow cookers are relatively simple devices, so there’s really not much to setting one up for work. The Weber Smokey Mountain cooker won’t require any tools for the job. With the parts out of the box, just stand the base up, insert the water pan in first, place the lower grate over the water pan, install the upper grate, and top it off with the lid. The extra-large fuel door on the side is used to add charcoal in the bottom and water or other liquids, beer, spirits, juices, to the water pan. Then everything’s ready to go.
