First smoke on the the new 26.75" Weber kettle with the Smokenator 2600. I smoked two butts, one 10lbs & the other 8.5. I got the grill on clearance at HD, $75.00!!! It was missing parts but I got them from Weber free of charge. Great service, called on Friday night and had parts the following Wednesday. I've done plenty of PP on my electric smoker but this is my first real smoke ring! . I held temps ~ 230 easily with my set up. I had some lump but decided to use what i know for the first smoke (Kingsford Blue bag). I do a lot of grilling and this Kettle is awesome, plenty of space and it seems the smoking ability is there as well.
