    New Gas Grill Owner

    Hello from Seattle! I just purchased a new Weber Spirit natural gas grill and got the Meathead book for some grilling guidance. I've never had a gas grill (other than the ones provided at various apartment complexes I've lived) before but have had a Weber kettle for awhile that I pretty much only used to heat up hot dogs and brats. My first goal is to perfect the grilled cheeseburger on the gas grill. However, I've been inspired by Meathead to experiment with smoking on my kettle. Looking forward to learning from you all!

    Welcome to the Pit. Sounds like you should have a good combo there to really get that hobby rolling. If/when you are ready to spend more money on your new hobby, you might look at the Slow 'n Sear for the kettle if you're going to try smoking. There's a number of ways to smoke on the kettle without it, but the SnS can make it a lot easier and more enjoyable.

    Either way, fire em up, cook a bunch of food and take some pics to share with us all.

      Welcome to the Pit from Alabama! Glad to have you onboard. You've got a great combination in the Weber Spirit and kettle, and should be able to smoke or grill just about anything. I do a lot of smoked meats on my 22" kettle - Boston butts for pulled pork, whole and half chickens, ribs, and briskets up to about 18-20 pounds. For Thanksgiving I rotisseries a 20 pound turkey, and it was the best ever. Can't beat the kettles. I love my Weber gas grills but there is just something about the taste of charcoal and smoke...

        Thanks! I think I'm going to start with smoking pulled pork...seems to be the most forgiving? I'll let you know how it goes! Are you a Roll Tide or a War Eagle man?

        JBright neither! I hail from Georgia, so root for the Bulldogs over both Alabama and Auburn. I'll then root for Auburn over Alabama, since that is the only school in this state I might have gone to, then Alabama over anyone else. How's that for loyalty, haha?

        Pulled pork is about the most forgiving thing to smoke for sure. It will take a while, and depending on how you setup the kettle for smoking, you will likely need to refuel at some point.

      Welcome to the pit from the bbq capital of New England, Massachusetts. After a short time you won't be able to walk through a grocery store without wondering how you can grill or smoke every item you just looked at.

                        And it's great weather to be cooking (Around 80F for those of you not here). You can smoke a ton of stuff well on a kettle and the gasser will be really nice for quicker things like burgers, steaks, etc). Just ask if you have questions, but MH's book will give you a ton of stuff to absorb already.
