Not sure if anyone has discussed this here before, but this like like a great addition if you have weber 22" grill and want to use it for smoking!

I just found out about this just the other day, I wish I'd have known sooner before I bought my SnP. That would be perfect for cooking a turkey.

Ordered one on Monday, it arrived yesterday. It will be used today, I am anxious to try it out.

Pretty cool---hey, it looks pretty easy to make too. If someone buys one, they could make a paper template of the sheet metal before its bent at a 90 and it would be pretty easy to duplicate I think:-)

1st run with the Smokenator

The first trial run was a productive one. If I can ever figure out to post pictures I will, however I am still fairly new to the forum worlds. I really loaded the cooker down for a first cook. I smoked an 8 lb Butt, 2 chicken halves, beef tenderloin and some ABTs to snack on. Here are a few observations:
  • You will definitely want the grill with the side that opens; it will make adding fuel much easier.
  • Temperature is easy to maintain once you get it set, mine held at 240-260, until I added fuel.
  • Initial fuel supply, 60 briquettes and 6 chunks of hickory & apple lasted 5 hours, I added 20 briquettes and 4 chunks of wood, at 7 hours I added 10 more briquettes. Total cook time 9.5 hours with a temp of 225 when I removed the butt.
  • When adding fuel you will want to keep your eye on the temp, it will spike on you quickly.
  • The Hovergrill needs to be taller; the butt would not fit under the grill.

With all the said, it was money well spent, it will be used frequently for smaller cooks. Hope this helps….

The smokenator has been discussed a few times. I've had one for over a year now....great little item. Dan also sells a hover grill, which is an additional grill survice that sits above the first one giving you more room to smoke. I just went to the supply store and bought a steam rack and have used that with success. I've also bought a smaller grill rack and made extra space by using ss rods and screws. There are pics of it around someplace on here. The smokenator is a great little device and really helps you maximise the use of a weber.
