Default Smoke on a Weber Kettle?

For all you Weber kettle owners out there, can you smoke on this? I'm looking for a grill to take camping, but I would like to smoke on it with good results, say a pork shoulder. I have been looking at the Pro-Q bullet, or the WSM, but I have an offset I'm just looking for a good all around grill/smoker. Thanks

ive done ribs and chicken on a kettle. you just need one of the charcoal side basket things to give indirect heat. never done anything big tho. the ribs and chicken came out awesome, and had a smoke ring with good smoke flavor. i am sure another brother has some more incite for you on this matter.

I have two kettles and I have never smoked meat on them. I primarily use them for direct/indirect cooking. For smoking meats its always on my WSM now. My poor old Chargriller offset sits there looking lonely these days. I would imagine some of the better cookers here will give you insight on using the kettle as a smoker. Good luck

I started my Smoking Experiences on a 18.5" Weber Charcoal Grill...did Brisket and Pork Butts on it all the time....You can't beat the Weber Grill for versatility.

Absolutely! You can do some great smoking on a kettle. For longer burns you will likely have to add fuel during the cook, but they can do anything (smoking, grilling, pizza, etc.).

Good luck!

I use the smokenator accessory on one of my kettles and it works very well for a 4hr burn (longer if you add fuel) or you can use fire bricks for indirect cooking for a longer burn. These kettles are great! Here is a good read I saw earlier today on this forum--

I've gotten 6 hour burn times from my Weber 22.5 grill. I use a large SS pan that I fill with water and add the charcoal and wood chunks to one side. I use the minion method. You can't beat the kettle it is a multi-purpose cooker.

I second this post, I too use the "Smokenator 1000', had very good results but is labor intensive. Have to check the water level every hour to an hour and a half depending on your temperature. The plus side is to make this same unit would easily cost you the same if not more, good luck, Big Kahuna

The Weber 22.5" Kettle is the most versatile piece of cooking equipment you can have in your backyard.

Yes, you can smoke on it. Bank your coals on one side, place a water pan under meat opposite the coals. Rotate exhaust vents to be over meat. Get a thermometer so you can watch temps. Good times.

I smoke almost exclusively on a Weber OTS 22.5" kettle. Take a look at my blog if you like and you can see what I have smoked on a kettle. If you don't look, I can tell you I have done pork butts, pork shoulder, full packer briskets, chickens and ribs.

Cool! Thanks for the info. We camp alot, and I need a grill that can do it all, yet be semi small for transport. It needs to fit near my bike rack. It is going to be near 80 deg. this weekend here in NY, I guess I need to go shopping!
