Oh and that setup is for low and slow. It'll give you about 250

Default O.P. here

Yes, I'm dragging this one back out of the boneyard.

Didn't get that WSM for Christmas, but it's all good. Going to try another briskie for President's Day, and will make some small adjustments to how I did it last time. Might just do a flat this time, we'll see. Oh, and a fattie. And ABTs. Ok, now I'm hungry.

Basically looking for any more tips for smoking in the kettle.

Thanks!

I set mine up with the ring of fire as pictured. I take a straightened out coat hanger once my temp gets up and stick it through the bottom of one of the vents and close the vent until it hits. This leaves just enough air for it to settle for low and slow. Saw this tip here on the forum and it works well for the kettles. You barely want the bottom vents open because you are opening all three vent on a kettle at once so it's getting plenty of air.

A couple of things:

- I need to adjust my bottom vent mechanism. Mine is, I believe, what is described as a daisy wheel: three large vent covers connected to a hub in the middle. They are bent away from the inside surface, so even when they are "closed" they will in effect still be rather open. It's due for some maintenance anyway, so this will be good..
If you have a handle that opens and closes the vents at the same time you have a One Touch system, if you have to open and close three vents seperately you have a three wheeler or daisy wheel.
