Kettle Set Up for Long Smokes

Recommended Posts

I used the Weber yesterday for a long cook (9 hours) and this is the set up I used. Would love to see how others set theirs up for long cooks.

Much the same too. I sometimes use wood chunks but more often I use pellets

I also place some foil over the snake to act as a heat deflector into the lower part of the cooking chamber

With good quality briquettes this gives a good 6-8 hours cooking temperature on a 1.5 Kg load.

Good tip on the foil and pellets, I will try that. And of course if you extend the snake further it will last longer so you can get  many more hours

Foils a great idea to be fair, I’m thinking of getting the new kettle with the fancy heat deflector with it just need to get the ok on the £295 from the wife!
