You don't need fire brick in the performer to smoke something in it. I have a one touch gold with the coal baskets that the performer has. I have smoked ribs, brisket, and pork butt on my kettle. You can also do the ring of fire method in the kettle to smoke stuff as well.
Like bludawg said, all i hear is excuses and see no reason that you can put out some Q with your kettles.
