i went to friends site and grabbed this page.

my dumb question is this. since all the charcoal is lit and burning, i assume that it will burn out in 2 hours so i can plan on replacing the charcoal every 2 hours, maybe less right?

I believe the general opinion is you can smoke anything on the kettle but it's not as set and forget as others methods. I'm confident I could turn out good brisket on my kettle but I'd only do it if I was in a pinch.

Edit: you can set up your charcoal so that you're actually using a version of the minion method
