Default a dumb question

I have never smoked meats for long period of times in my otg 22.5. So i thought i would check it out. i have always used my uds, even though i have tried it in the uds and wsm style cooker with all lit charcoal, it is a we bit different.

i went to friends site and grabbed this page.

http://amazingribs.com/tips_and_tech...ill_setup.html

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?

thanks

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

I can run my kettle at low and slow temps for quite a while using the standard weber charcoal baskets. I have run it for 8-9 hours before with no problem. I have several videos of that process... I cooked ribs one time and a boston butt on the kettle like this. I did not lite all the charcoal at once... I created a minion method burn in the baskets. There are lots of different ways documented on this site to do long low and slow burns on a weber kettle...

No dumb questions! It is known as the snake method.
Good luck!
