One of the things I love about Weber kettle is their versatility. While most people use these charcoal grills for high heat grilling, you can also use them as amazing “Low and Slow” barbecue pits. Here is an easy guide for “How to Smoke Meat With a Weber Kettle“!
01 Adjust Your Air Vents
02 Smoke With Indirect Heat
03 Don’t Try to be Perfect
What makes a Weber kettle an amazing smoker is the ability to control the air flow through the grill. When you can control the amount of air that is going through the grill then you have a pretty good handle on controlling the temperature.
A huge part of using a kettle as a smoker is to not get obsessed over temperature. Unless you are using some fancy electronic blowers and temperature gauges you are not going to maintain an exact temperature and that is okay!
People bicker over the correct smoking temperature constantly. The reality is that some people make amazing barbecue at 225F and some people make amazing barbecue at 325F.
