    Got one recently after owning a Weber kettle for 8 years and I don't know how I lived without it.

    Been using them forever. As a scout leader, we taught our boys how to make them out of tin cans and coat hangers. IMO it's the only to go.

    Starting a chimney is what I primarily use my side burner on the gasser for.  
  8. Yup everyone should own one as well as a kettle grill regardless of what other stuff you have.

    Happy smoken.

    I think you just might be right on the kettle.  I haven't had one in a looooong time and I'm looking into it again.

    Had a kettle for years, hard to beat.  Simple but versatile.  The charcoal chimney, I still use regularly.


    Best of luck!!

    I would like to have a kettle or mini for small cooks, but wife has her big gasser and will not do without it. I have a cooking grate in the FB of my new smoker but have not had a chance to use it yet.
