View Full Version : A little kettle help...

03-09-2013, 08:53 AM
I'm cooking burgers and hot dogs tomorrow for a tcu baseball game tailgate party. I've never cooked them on a weber 22.5" grill. Cooking around 25 of each. How many chimney fulls of Kingsford blue should I use? Any other helpful tips or suggestions?

A full load of lit charcoal poured on unlit charcoal in kettle should get it done.
I would set up direct side and indirect side.
You might consider an onion,pepper, beer holding bath for dogs and burgers.

Will everyone be eating at once? I cooked for a club picnic on a Weber Silver A (2 burner propane) and it was pretty easy since I didn't have to feed everyone at once. I had a second grill but never fired it up because there was no need.

I did have a chafing dish with two compartments. One for brats had a mix of beer and onions and the one for burgers was dry. It worked well.
