QUALITY GRILL PARTS
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"
The three key steps for using your kettle as a smoker are:
Adjust The Air Vents on the Kettle
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.
There are two important steps to configuring the top air vent located in the lid of the grill. 1. The first step is to make sure the top vent is completely open. This is going to help the small fire burn cleanly.
This process involves maintaining a small fire on one side of the grill. The side of the grill with the fire will be called the “Hot Side”. The side of the grill away from the fire will be called the “Indirect Side”.
Fill the basket with charcoal. Make sure they are spread out; you don’t want them all piled up on top of each other. I use Weber starter cubes to get the charcoal lit. They come in a box of 24 and are super handy.
