An option for making your kettle into a medium capacity smoker: Smoke EZ Conversion Kit. Here’s another clever way to turn your inexpensive Weber Kettle into a smoker, but this one has significantly more capacity than the Slow ‘N Sear. It also costs a lot more at about $200.
The Smoke EZ kit contains a large powder coated 20 gauge steel ring that sits between the lid of your kettle and the bottom. Powder coating is pretty durable and should protect the ring from rust for years. Inside the ring are brackets to hold two standard round Weber grates or if you prefer, their hangar rack that allows you to hang whole fish, ribs, sausage, hams or food up to 22″ long.
In the bottom half of the Kettle you place a fire ring and pour the coals around it in a C shape. You light a few coal on one end with a FireStarter Cube and the C shape of coals burns slowly and gently around the ring for long low and slow cooks that last many hours. Then there is a water bowl/drip pan that you can set inside the ring to catch drips and add humidity to the environment.
Add this to a Weber One Touch Gold and you have an easy ash clean out. The Smoke EZ has handles making removal of the center section easy, and they will come in handy on really long cooks because there is no door in the side to add charcoal or water as there is on the Weber Smokey Mountain. The fire ring configuration allows greater fuel capacity than the WSM.
