  •  You can use your Weber kettle as a smoker (2+ / 0-)

    I've done this, it works, and you don't have to buy extra equipment.

    Here's what to do:

    Place a single layer of charcoal in the bottom of the kettle and fire it up.  When the coals are hot, divide them in half and push each half to opposites sides of the kettle.  Take a disposable aluminum pan that is large enough to fit in between the separated charcoal, and place it in the center between the hot coals.  Whatever you're smoking should be placed directly over the aluminum pan.  Put a small amount of water in the pan (this helps prevent flare ups and "greasy" smoke from any drippings.)  Put your preferred smoking wood over the hot coals, put the lid on, vent ever so slightly and smoke your food until the desired doneness is reached, adding more hot coals as necessary to maintain smoke and temperature.

    Give it a try.
