    I've had a Weber Spirit gas grill for a few years and I love it. I am wanting to start smoking ribs, brisket and anything else. I bought a metal smoke box from a bbq store here in OKC. My grill does not have a separate smoke burner like some of the weber models do. Any tips on how to smoke on low heat for something like ribs or pork butt that takes a few hours?

    You just need to cook indirect.

    Keep the meat on the cool side of the grill & put the smoke box over the side with the flame.

    Ditto Al, done these on the Genesis a few weeks ago.

    Baby Backs grilled 2 - 2.5 hours at 300 - 400° indirect heat.
    Mopped with soy and Rib Rub, flipped several times, built glaze with "Sweet Baby Rays Original" and my own BBQ sauce, grilled over direct heat 5 minutes meat side down, flipped reglazed and moved to indirect again for 10 more minutes.

    • These were extremely gooey and messy.
