    Hose clamps on the one touch

    I’m sure others have done this...If your one touch keeps loosening around the bottom of the kettle like mine, 3 hose clamps from Home Depot will secure it. Works great...super cheap.

    Montreal Smoked Meat

    8 hours at 250-275. Had to add a few coals to keep things going but nothing major. Weber briquettes burn a long time. Took it off at 165, let it rest, then the flat steamed for 2 hours.

    Montreal Smoked Meat

    On at 10:30 A.M. Weber briquettes, half a snake to start, water pan about half filled with boiling water. Should hold for 4-5 hours at 250-275, at which point I’ll rebuild the coals. Fat side up!

    I thought you were arguing that when drilling a hole for the burner, you have to measure and drill a very specific almond shape. Of course the curve of the bowl will naturally alter the curve of the hole. Nice pictures though.

    Performer front panel paint job

    The front panel on my performer was looking a little dinged up. A few coats of rustoleum high heat silver spray paint, and an acrylic black stripe painted on with a brush. I extended the stripe all the way. Not perfect by any stretch, but kind of looks a bit retro!

    Montreal Smoked Meat

    First time trying this. I found a recipe online and am slightly modifying. A 15 LB brisket. In the fridge she goes for at least a week to cure. Stay tuned more to come.
