Smoking Over Night

Discussion in 'Beef' started by roareats, Jun 27, 2011.

  1. Hi guys,

    I have two grills 

    - Weber Genesis

    - Weber Performer

    My AMZNPS should be arriving soon now that the mail post service is resuming after a strike.

    If I am planning to smoke that would take a long time ( say a brisket or pulled pork ), I should be having consistent smoke throughout the entire cook but I am concern that overnight cooking on the performer will yield fluctuations in temperature ( and that the fuel may run out ).

    With the genesis I don't have to worry about it. What do you folks think?

    You won't get the same flavor with gas that you would get with charcoal, but at least you'll get a good nights sleep.

    I think that the performer is better option it is more insolated for the smoke.

    IMO - Weber Kettle Grills are the best charcoal grills on the market.  You can easily use them for smoking.

    Your Weber Genesis gas grill has a large slot along the back, that allows for most for the smoke to escape.  You have to plug most of it, and then you take a chance on overheating your gas grill.

    If you set up your charcoal using the Minion Method, I bet your Weber Performer would be a great choice.

    Take lots of pics, and let us know how it works for you!!!

  5. Thanks guys!

    I really thought that the mention of a gas grill will cause this thread to have no responses and have the entire forum shun me =)
