    New and Looking for Advice on Grill Setup

    Hey Everyone, I’m fairly new here. I live in a condo so I can only have a natural gas grill. I have a Weber Spirit II E-210. It’s a two burner. Does anyone have pics of their optimal setup for smoking/indirect cooking on this grill? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

          Welcome to The Pit. Sorry, but I do not have a gasser.

              Welcome from Maryland. I have the 3 burner Spirit II so it is easy to just use the left burner. However the right side of the 2 burner is much closer to the the only other burner. If there was someway to rest a barrier on the middle flavor bar so the heat had to go up and then over to reach the right side that might improve the results. Just spitballing here.

                        I have the same grill. It's in my garage now and will end up living at the cabin. 2 burners aren't optimal for smoking. I'm thinking a smoke tube running on the warming rack might be the way to go. Then you can have one side direct and the other indirect.


                          Welcome from Virginia! I have a gasser but do not use for smoking. However, like others have said, you can easily cook indirect by turning off burners. Not perfect, but it works! Then I would highly recommend the smoke tube as Attjack mentions.


                            Welcome and good luck. Sorry, no gasser.

                              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period.

                              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
