I live in a condo development and have had a gas grill on my deck for my outdoor cooking efforts. For years it was a Weber and could not manage to make it work as a smoker because I could not get it to hold a low enough temperature to smoke properly. That grill gave up the ghost and I replaced it with a Ducane.
I was thinking about how I would cook the country-style ribs I had rubbed and waiting in the fridge. I fired up the grill and did some testing. With one of the three burners on a low setting, I can maintain temperatures from 250 F up. Hooray!
I soaked some hickory chips and fired up the grill got things going and smoked the ribs indirectly. When they were mostly done I brushed on some BBQ sauce and finished them off.
I call them a success.
