Check out what this guy does with an old Weber Kettle. He uses firebricks to build a firebox, then with a small amount of coal, can get 1.5 hours of 225 degree heat for smoking. Pretty neat idea.

Five brick kettle.

Wow, that is a GREAT idea. Makes the heat indirect and is a simple one to do.

Take care,

Brian

With our grill we can turn the two end rows of gas on, and leave the middle one off. I have cooked things in the center that was therefore "indirect". And those ribs did look tasty.

Wait a minute, I just went back, isn't this thread a year old? lol

This is harder to do on a Weber, in my opinion, as the burners run from side to side rather than front to back. As a result, you hava long narrow area of indirect heat rather than a more useable sort of square one.
