    Thanks Dave,

    I have one solid piece for it, and also a neat little insert for doing beer can chicken. It lowers the chicken below the grate so it fits under the cover. I guess I'll have to do a beer can chicken thread using the insert.

    Great lookin' ribs Al. I've done 'em on the Weber with good success, too. I've gotta ask. Where did you get your cast iron grate? I don't think I've been livin' under a rock or anything, but I have never seen those before. I assume it would fit a WSM as well. Bein' a gadget freak, that's a "grate" idea. Please, do tell!

    Here's the link:

    They have a lot of cool stuff for Weber. If you get the grate make sure you get the handle to remove them when they are hot.

    I also got the hot plate & the beer can chicken thingy.

    Thank-you! Once I got the temp stabilized it held it the whole time. The bottom vents were almost closed & the lid vent was wide open, with a little practice I think I can control it almost as easy as a WSM. You have a great weekend too!

    Thanks Al. I love my Webers. Learn how to control the temps and you can cook just about anything on 'em.  As usual, you guys are about to cost me a few more Sentavo's.[​IMG]

    They are fun to use & for something like ribs or chicken they are awesome.

    If I'm gonna do a brisket or a pork butt then the WSM with the BBQ Guru is where I go.

    Sometime when I really ambitious I may try a butt on the Kettle just to prove to myself I can do it.

    The hard part for me would be staying up all night babysitting the fire.

    I'm usually drinking beer or Johnny Walker when I smoking, so I guess I'd have to change to Colombian coffee.

    Beer is indeed a requisite ingredient for smoking. Ya, would have to bring up that BBQ Guru thing now, wouldn't ya. [​IMG]  That's on the "toys to buy" list! Cha Ching!! [​IMG]

    AWESOME!

    This proves that you don't need a big fancy smoker to put out some Great BBQ!

    This should be a WIKI on how to smoke ribs in a Weber Kettle Grill
