    Hello from New Mexico

    I suck at grilling. But I'm getting better. Just bought the kit to convert my Weber kettle to a smoker from SnS. I also bought the Maerick thermometer. I don't have a clue what I'm doing, but I'm looking forward to learning.

          Jemezgracie - you just need to open both vents all the way. having either vent, (or both), partially closed will reduce air flow and make the Kettle run cooler. The good news is that you have learned how to do low and slow now.

          Thanks RonB. I will try that next time. I still have much to understand. Will both vents full open cause the charcoal to burn even faster?

          Jemezgracie - yes, charcoal will burn faster, but the cook will somewhere around an hour, so you can close the vents when you pull the chix off and save the remaining coals.

                        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                        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. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                        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.
