Temps should be the kettle, the WSM, a MOAB or even in your home oven. On a kettle, you'l have more trouble keeping them steady, but the range is the same. At least IMHO.

you can peg a kettle, using 8-10 briquettes in the charcoal holders.

One of my best bb's was done in a kettle at around 235*

Plenty of prelighting coals on the turkey fryer mod.

Honestly, higher temps have not hurt butts I've done in the past. Once when I first tried a butt on an ECB with no mods I couldn't get the temp of the ECB above 180 degrees. After 6 hours of fighting it the coal pan was full of ash and wouldn't take one more piece of charcoal. I was so ticked off I wrapped the butt in foil and stuck it on the gas weber on medium. Chamber temps were probably in the 325-350 range and took the meat temps from ~125 to 190 in about 45 minutes. Wasn't quite as easy to pull as butts I've done since 100% on the BSKD, but it wasn't too bad at all.

I wouldn't advocate this method of Q'ing on a regular basis, but like I say, higher temps in the kettle shouldn't have any adverse action on your Q.

8-10, one side, with 2-3 chunks of hickory (fully light and flaming)

Each briquette = 20*, then the rest is hickory heat,

granted, in 2 hours when you add 8-10 more, you really have like 15 worth.

And I guess I dont have a true charcoal basket. I offset by piling up on one side

I saw the biggest butt I've ever seen at Sam's today... When she moved aside :) , I found a 13+ lb butt in the meat case! $1.49/lb. I should have bought it, but I have two in the freezer already...
