    According to my manual, it goes up to 475 degrees. As I have referenced before, I have the older Party Q model

    The Smokenator is at 12:00 and I drilled the hole at 3:00 for the Party Q. I have the thingy pointed to the SN so the air goes to the coals. I believe the instructions say to face the opening towards the SN / coals. I will double check. Apparently I am wrong. Got to http://www.thebbqguru.com/products/bbq-manuals.html for more info. look for the .pdf mounting the bbq guru on your Weber. Remember I have the older model

    Where do you put the Party Q in relation to the coals/smokenator? Does it matter if it is not blowing directly onto the coals? I just don't want to ruin my new kettle with ill placed hole drilling.

    I use the Party Q on my 22.5" Weber with the Smokenator. Rock solid temp control once I figured out my bottom blades were bent a bit and got new ones

    Interesting... I have often wondered about those things. It would be cool if someone could put an iGrill2 or iCelcius on it so we could see a graph.

    started a topic PartyQ works! My setup worked the first time.

    PartyQ works! My setup worked the first time.

    I have a 25+ year old 22" kettle. It has three sets of air intakes around the lower portion with 3 3/4" holes each. What great control. It leaks badly around the cover but the PartyQ managed fine. I had the top vent almost shut down.

    I bought the PartyQ, enlarged one of the lower air intakes. I had to start the coals outside of the grill because of the lack of air, no big deal. Also, I needed to start about 6 coals and set them on top of the unlit coals. The PartyQ held at 225 degrees perfectly (measured with an iGrill ambient probe held 2" above the grate about 4" from the ribs. The coals choke down and get fed air just enough to heat the 225 and they lasted very long.

    I did not use any fancy coal set-up. I just used a heavy aluminum water pan to hold the coals to the side. I did cover the coal grate with foil except where the coals were. The PartyQ was set up directly across from the coals so the air flow was allowed to spread but had only one escape..under the coals.

    It was amazing. It did take a while to warm up the grill though. I need to work on that, maybe start quite a few coals with the vents open and then move them to the side as the starters, set in unlit coals and close down the vents.

    It was amazing! Today ribs on the kettle and salmon at 110 degrees in the smoker.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
