Weber Portable Charcoal Series

Line Description: 

We're talking about Smokey Joe, the mini-Weber kettles that are portable, inexpensive and work great for small capacity, straightforward grilling. These popular little cookers have similar design and construction to full-size kettles: dampers on the bottom and top, coupled with tight construction, provide good air control and thus good heat control. The kettle is solid although the legs are lightweight. Great for picnics, tailgating, camping and small spaces like an apartment. If you plan on moving your Smokey Joe often, go for the Gold or Jumbo models that have a metal arm that snaps the lid shut for easy transport.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
