There are many good threads here and at the Weber Kettle Club site that explain how to smoke on a kettle, i have done a spatchcocked chicken using two half circles of charcoal (two rows (( )) and a third row on top of each) and lite the bottom of one row and the top of the other row, along with a aluminum foil pan with some water in it and chunks spaced out on each row, with top and bottom vents open will cook the chicken just right and no fuss and no muss

Oh btw the kettle in my avatar is cooking the chicken i spoke of!

I cooked a brisket on my 22 1/2 kettle yesterday. First time using the minion method, but great success. I didn't have the luck of a long burn, but held its temp perfectly. Once it reached the end I just added more charcoal reverse direction. Was pretty easy with the hinged grates. It was an 8 lb brisket I rubbed down the night before, and injected with beef broth. Used Stubbs rub, and moping sauce. Results....... BEST BRISKET I'VE EVER COOKED!! My family was shocked, and my 2 year old twin boys keep asking "meat, please."
