Smoke Somethin

Got this char-griller premium kettle for my birthday, it says its a smoker too.

So after a little research and about 40 bucks for charcoal baskets and a pizza stone I'm gonna give it a shot.

Here's the kettle


Charcoal baskets


Modified grate out of my old grill, had to cut the sides off, and hit it with a hammer a couple times so it would get past these bolts.


Pizza Stone(heat diffuser)


Water/drip pan


Forgot to add the apple wood, it wasn't that bad to open everything back up. Glad I took out some of the center of the old grate.


Iron mikes mustard Bbq for a binder and Montreal steak, some minced onions, salt and pepper on the rub.



Questions, comments, and suggestions all welcome. This will be my smoking/grilling thread.

Bout to slap the meat on now!

As a matter of fact, I dont even know if Freeport bum even has a grill, that grate could have just been levitating ove some sort of heat source lol

Now I have fired this puppy up, but I'll add that little adventure a little later. :D
P.S. If these pics are sideways, TS. I've played with the "exif", including deleting it, and they still look sideways.
Well, I went to this estate an hour and 45 mins early in Hope's of getting a yellow weber yesterday. Some duesh pocket had called and asked the estate sale if it was gonna be under 500, so they had it marked 575 lol. Another weber guy I know was there, and ended up getting it for 525. I told him he was crazy, and left feeling super butthurt. They are lucky I'm not the old me, or I would have had it the night before lol.
