Default Smokey Joe indirect heat questions?

Hey gang, As most of you know we purchased the smokey joe for the comp and I fell in love with the little unit, Here's my question.

If I want to do small stuff in indirect heat, How many coal's for fish?

They say for salmon, but I want to do talipa, and I will be learning all those recipes in the weber hand book!

Here is a link to the TVWBB which shows in detail a guy that smokes on his SJS. It goes into pretty good detail on smoking indirect on a small smokey joe. It is incredible to me and I have been wanting to try it but alas I am a lazy farker. It may help you. If you're doing indirect I wouldn't use much coals as using too many chokes down your fire.

Do you mean asparagus or speargrass?

From my experience, smoked veggies do not taste good. Unless you wrap the veggies in bacon or use them as a stuffing, I don't think much flavor is absorbed by them.

I like to marinate in s&p and EVOO, then grill the asparagus on high heat.

For the corn, I like to coat them with butter and herbs, foil them and grill on high heat for a few minutes.

I would think that asparagus and corn have different requirements for cooking. I too like asparagus over high heat, direct. For corn, if there is no husk, I am likely not going to put it on the fire. If there is a full husk, I soak the entire thing, then whack it onto the coals direct, or I carefully peel, but, do no remove the husks, rub corn with butter and rub, place husk back and out it over direct high heat. Fresh corn just needs to be heated.

I like to coat my asparagus with olive oil and a little lemon juice in a zip lok bag, dust with black pepper and garlic powder and then direct high heat for a few minutes turning once. After it's cooked, some grated Parmesan sprinkled on top is also good. Salt optional after it's cooked.
The corn, I leave in husk and soak in sink for a couple hours and grill over direct heat turning occasionally for about ten minutes.

i thought I posted on this thread already...

I wanted to ask, are you talking about a WSM or a WSJ? I'm lost when you say about a second grate or are you counting the charcoal grate?

I saw on another forum guys taking the WSJ and making a mini WSM by cutting the bottom out of a 32Q tamale cooker. I was going to try it but got building myself a trailer. Maybe in the winter when im bored!

I just read through the link the Al provided! Holy carp! With all the time and mods that the guy put into modifying the Smokey Joe he may as well have bought a 18.5" kettle or a used 22.5" kettle off of Craigslist! To me, the Smokey Joe is just too small to be an effective smoker (unless you are willing to do custom metal work). it's a good portable grill. Just use it that way.

Thank you Ron, I'll use it as a practice grill / fam cook outs / camping and I'll use the wsm for the big boy stuff :)

i made a mini smoker as family man mentions. the thing is awesome and requires very little work to make. indirect on the sjs can also be done simply. i do two fatties on it and have no issues. i just pile some coals on one end and put the meat on the other and away you go. no need to make it hard. i use a small can that goes over the lower vent holes and fits just under the coal grate. i then drilled a bunch of holes in the can just under what would be the top(bottom of the can)so that it would breath but prevented the ash from blocking the holes. works great. i love the sjs's and especially the mini smoker. the sjs's are surely under rated.
