Create The Vortex Effect In Your Weber Smokey Mountain
We're excited to bring you the Firedial, this unique heavy-duty baffle sits in your WSM, where your water pan would normally be and has the following benefits:
- Standard out the box it's set to low and slow, it regulates temperature by limiting the airflow through the smoker, the same as the water pan, but has the added benefit of absorbing heat and acting as a heat sink in your smoker to balance temperature swings, as well as save fuel.
- You will also get a griddle cooking effect, due to the meat juices dripping onto a red hot plate evaporating and adding another flavour profile to your cooks.
- Possibly the best feature is the adjustable tabs, by bending these up you will increase airflow and change your WSM to a hot and fast drum smoker, simply tune to your favourite cooking temperature. Why not buy 2 plates, 1 for low and slow, the other for hot and fast competition cooks.
- This plate also adds to the swirling effect, moving air in a circular motion through the wsm, this eliminated hot spots and creates very even cooking of large cuts of meat, meaning no more grate adjustment as you cook.
Physical Firedial Diameters:
Small dial for 37cm WSM = 28.5cm
Medium dial for 47cm WSM = 39cm - Also Fits 18'' Fornetto Smoker
Large dial for UDS and 57cm WSM = 47.4cm
These plates are plain steel, they often get shipped to us marked, so they maybe scratched on arrival.
We recommend you give it a thick coat of a good quality oil or beef tallow, and fire up the WSM, leave it to bake on for a few hours and you will find the plate will be completely black covering all the marks.
This is the best mod I bought for my wsm. Been using the wsm for over 5 years now on average 1 to 2 times per week. This mod makes life even easier regarding temp control, its now full on set and forget, easier cleaning ( no need to clean it ) never used water in the pan, used to lightly foil it or used lava rocks sometimes, depending....
So far I found you don't have to adjust/bend the firedial, leave as it comes and it works great. Not to sure about the fuel saving part , but so far, I'm finding that I used less fuel . This is a must have. If I knew what I know now, I would have bought this the same day I bought my wsm. Shout out for prosmoke too! Very helpful and kind!
Not used it yet, but looks and feels very solid. Will be a very much needed addition to my WSM to help maintain that constant temperature. Never used the water pan with water, as there is no need for it, so just use a spray bottle.
YouTube will show how good this FireDial is, so it's a must watch, and addition for you're WSM.
Had my WSM for many years and have always been very suspicious of mods. I’ve never used water in the water pan, and just lightly foil it each time. I was a little sceptical about the firedial but first cook impressions are excellent:
Low and slow temps right out of the box with no adjustment- just maintained and tweaked using the bottom vents. Then was able to raise temps very quickly, so I know this will handle any temp I choose
Very good fit, creating huge improvement in airflow and access to the fuel level ( not that I needed it)
Far better access to the Lower shelf and much more even temps between the grates
Got to temp far quicker than the foiled water bowl
The dial acts as a flavouriser bar vapouring grease dropping from the meat (test cook was baby back ribs). Will be amazing with spatch cocked chicken!
Very simple clean up- a simple scrape and will just flip it over for the next cook
Well fabricated and great value- should last many years.
All the claims I’ve read do stack up and this is a modification that is a huge improvement on the original design. Absolutely recommended👍
The FireDial is a must have for anyone owning a WSM .
It's ability to cook low and slow / and hot and fast is incredible without any adjustments to the Dial .
All you need is vent control for different style of cook .
No more dirty water pan clean up ,just reverse Dial next cook and carbonised fats will burn off .
Crispy chicken is no problem with this great add on item .
