Weber® Smokey Mountain Cooker™ 57cm (With FREE Cover) (731004)
The distinctive bullet-shaped Weber® Smokey Mountain Cooker™ 57cm is perfectly designed so that smoke can circulate and infuse food as it cooks to achieve the desired smokey barbecue flavour.
Available in 37cm, 47cm or 57cm means that there is a Smokey Mountain Cooker™ suitable for any family size or group of friends alike.
Inside the Smokey Mountain Cooker™ 57cm behind the large removable aluminium door are two triple-plated cooking grates (which offer a whopping 4683cm² cooking area) and a water pan used for creating steam which circulates during cooking to keep food moist and juicy.
As with the Weber® charcoal kettles, the bowl and lid of the Weber® Smokey Mountain Cooker™ 57cm are fully porcelain-enamelled to ensure protection against fire, rust and the elements and are all made to last which is why Weber® confidently offer a 10-year warranty on them.
Besides two glass-reinforced nylon handles, the Weber® Smokey Mountain Cooker™ 57cm lid also contains an integrated thermometer to monitor the temperature of the unit during cooking. In addition, set into the main body is a silicone cap into which thermometer probes (sold separately) can be inserted to measure the internal temperature of the food itself. Also, for further control of temperature a rotatable no-rust aluminium vent is fixed towards the bottom.
Three no-rust aluminium legs support all the Smokey Mountain Cookers™ and a heat deflector is positioned between them to offer some protection to the surface beneath.
The popular Weber® Smokey Mountain Cooker™ 57cm is suitable for anyone looking to expand their cooking repertoire and compliments traditional kettle barbecuing rather than replacing it.
Regardless of which Smokey Mountain Cooker™ you do choose, the secret of getting succulent meat always remains the same; keep the temperature low and cook for longer.
Besides being an excellent poultry roaster, Weber® also suggest that if you are cooking a joint then the cheaper cuts of meat like brisket and pork shoulder are better to achieve deliciously soft and tender results.
When it comes to using the Smokey Mountain Cooker™ 57cm things couldn't be easier; simply add water, spread flavoured wood chips and chunks as desired, bring the charcoal up to temperature, pop in the food and let the cooker cook!
To enhance the flavour of your food Weber® offers a broad range of wood chips and chunks to add distinctive flavours to the smoke. In general, use chunks for larger and chips for smaller cuts of meat. To see the full range, click here.
Included with all Smokey Mountain Cookers™ is a premium cover to protect against the elements and keep rainwater from collecting in the lid groove when not in use.
Remember, to get the best out of your Smokey Mountain Cooker™, ‘low and slow is the way to go!’

Upgraded from a ProQ to this beast, totally worth it! Huge cooking area, usual excellent Weber build quality and it holds temperature very well.
I bought the WSM 57 cm to have when on the odd occasion you are cooking for large numbers, admittedly it was a bit extravagant. It is huge but I love it! Within days of receiving it I have slow cooked (6 - 7 hours plus) beef ribs and pulled pork at the same time. It was surprisingly straight forward and kept a consistent temperature throughout, I use an igrill 2 thermometer. You do need make time to prep both before and for cleaning after.
Very happy with my purchase, it's very intuitive to use and I now just need to get some practice in before the summer!
It does what they say it would do. It makes smoking and "low &slow" BBQ easy. It takes some getting used to in terms of timing and temp but so much easier than an offset. Loads of space and very happy with my purchase. It does use a lot of fuel, but that is expected of the bigger size.
The WSM was quick to assemble. I was smoking the day after the smoker arrived. It held a temp of about 120°c for about 6 hours with little to no fuss.
Brilliant craftsmanship and design, easy assembly and the smokey cooks fantastic tasty meat. Will try fish and vegetables next. meat is so easy to cook that the Christmas turkey and festive meats will be a definite go
So easy to use it’s ridiculous. I’ve been kicking around with a Weber mastertouch for smoking for a couple of years (snake method, two zone etc etc) and it was a massive faff with mixed results. The WSM holds its temperature so easily, it makes smoking a doddle. Must have had to go it maybe twice in 9 hours? Highly recommend.
Manual to assemble the Smoker was not that easy without words, but the diagrams helped a lot and in the end all worked out well. A shame that a basic recipe book didn't come with it.
Awesome product with great build quality. A real brand leader
Great product, thoroughly recommend, just tried beef brisket out , it was absolutely gorgeous!
What a marvelous piece of equipment this is. I can't wait to do more, learn more and experiment more. We cooked four 3kg briskets simultaneously for a party, the guests loved the meat, but also loved the WSM!
A new way of barbecuing for me. Fascinating to do the low and slow methods so used in the States. I've already had some great success with lamb hocks and now brisket. Quality is great as ever and the design is absolutely to purpose. Great fun as well!
Started smoking three years ago and thought I was ready to upgrade my kit. Swift delivery,easy to assemble and just what I needed. Bought the 57cm WSM and I have been using it once a week since it's arrival. Much easier to control the temperature and have been using kohle 4hr briquettes, which have an excellent burn time & perfect for smoking with. Very pleased with the WSM! Thanks Riverside smashing product and service. Cheers John
What a great piece of kit this is , if your in the market for a smoker you can't go wrong with this 1 still smoking in October
had other smokers before but decided to go for the weber better results all round, a top class bit of kit and very good service from riverside
so far very pleased excellent service from Riverside would definitely return to buy more
brought this on the 2/6/2014 and used it to smoke a pulled pork it was perfect and I'm glad i got the bigger one as now I'm ready for the would cup bbq can't wait ready to smoke 2 chickens and the pulled pork again
I bought this last year, brilliant but make sure you are getting the right size for you as this is huge! needs lots of coal! but great fun and cooks food to absolute smoked perfection!
