You’ve probably heard me say this before, but I use my Weber Kettle grill more than any other smoker I own.

I’ve owned at least three 22.5” Webers over the years and I imagine that there will always be one sitting on my patio. The Weber Kettle is my go-to grill for quick and easy cooking. In a matter of minutes I can have a chimney of charcoal glowing hot and ready to cook and the Weber never lets me down.

The Weber is great for general grilling and with the addition of a good set of grill grates you can turn out restaurant quality steaks, but today I want to share with you how I set the Weber Kettle up for indirect smoking.


With this set up you can smoke just about anything on the Weber as long as it fits on the rack above the drip pan.
