    Default Weber Kettle 12 HRs@250 "NO TOUCH" MOD

    As I have said in the past I love my Weber kettle. My CG is a great pit for the money and with a few mods it dose a fairly good job, but it won't let me sleep through the night. Got to feed it every few hrs. or the temp starts to drop. Always looking to improve on perfection and laying plans for an up coming UDS build I got an idea that I had to try. An inside out coal basket for my kettle. I cut a piece of expanded metal 4" X 45" and bolted it together to make a 15" circle. I placed it on the coal grate and filled the space between it and the kettle with a mix of lump and bricks and chunks of pecan.

    I lit enough small pieces of lump to cover the floor of my chimney and added it to one end. Hating to waste a good fire I decided to cook the 10 lb butt that I had ready originally destined for the CG.

    Temp 15 min after lighting was at 213 and climbing, I closed down the air to 1/3 open and loaded the Butt She settled out at 250 it drifted about 3 deg up and down.

    Got to love that TBS. After 4 1/2 hrs I had to look Much to my surprise the fire had only burnt about 6".The proof is in the position of the handle on the right as compared to the first pic.

    12 hrs internal temp at 204 ready to foil and into the cooler.

    I think I just might fall in love all over again, This thing is a BBQ Machine.
