How much should I get?

  1. I was wondering who could give me some advice on what size meats to get for smoking on a Weber 22.5 Kettle.  I don't what to get something so big that it would infinge on the high heat side of the grill.  I have gotten my technique down for keeping the temp where I want it.  I really want to try some pork shoulder, and some brisket.  Thanks for the help
  2. you can fit virtually anything on there.. a pork butt is a good start or a medium size packer brisket....
  3. Check out the BBQ Pit Boys on the web. They Q just about everything on a kettle.....

    I have a 22.5" Weber, and I have done darn near everything in it, including a half ham, and 2 beer can chickens.

    I usually place the coals on one side and the meat on the other. But if you're doing something very large, you can put it in the middle, and make a ring of charcoal along the outside rim of the bottom grate. Then smoke by using the Minion method.
