Weber Cooking

Weber Genesis Gas Grill Smoking

We realize this may be a bit ‘taboo’ for some, but there are occasions where the convenience of smoking on a gas grill has its benefits and since we are here to teach you everything we know about smoking meats, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include a post about it for gas grill fanatics.

This post is for basic instruction on how to smoke, low and slow, on a Weber gas grill – specifically the Weber Genesis (but this would generally work on any gas grill in which you can control and monitor temperature).

BBQ Smoked Turkey



Let’s talk Turkey. If you have a smoker, chances are friends and family will look to you around Thanksgiving, Christmas , or any turkey time. Fortunately, the below recipe will provide a way to have them begging you for another round of gobbler.


The equiptment: For this cook, we are going to use the trusty WSM 18″ smoker. For additional giggles, I’m going to break out the proQ expander for the WSM. Though it won’t be necessary, I just got it and want to give it a go.  This item will slip into the middle section of the WSM and add an additional cooking grate.  We will use kingsford charcoal, pecan wood chunks for smoke, a looftlighter (electric charcoal starter), and lastly a pitmaster IQ110 for temperature control.

One Way to Make a Smoker Run Crappy

It was shortly after we had installed our Rock’s Barbecue Stoker system to the Lil’ Chub and we couldn’t have been any more proud that our pit ran even better than before. On initial tests and practice cooks the pit ran flawlessly. To no fault of the Stoker, this time was different.

Each year prior to the beginning of the competition season we would typically cook for friends and family to make a few extra bucks. We would provide them with some vacuum packaged meats in trade for a donation for the team. It became known to the team as the “Big Cook.” This year was our 4th year in a row of the “Big Cook” and as you can imagine, each year more and more friends were asking if they could make a donation to the team. Obviously, this meant more meat needed to be cooked.

Kettle Pizza Review: BUY IT!

I was able to get my hands on something that I’ve been wanting to try for a very long time.  The Kettle Pizza attachment unit for the 22″ Weber Kettle Grill!  As you may know, pizza on the grill is one of my favorite things to cook and I’ve written a few articles about it here on BBQ Revolution.  Our family loves to eat pizza and I really don’t think there is any better way to eat it.

Smokenator 1000 Product Review

As everybody knows, we swear by the Weber Kettle.  So, when we see something out there that may make it better we want to try it.  Ever skeptical in things that can make a perfect rig better we felt obligated to put it to the test.  If you started out like most of us you’ve done your time standing by the kettle feeding it a few briquettes every hour to run for long periods of time.  According to the claims on the website the Smokenator 1000 can run for 6 hours if ran per the instructions.

Pitmaster IQ 110 – Review

Product Review: IQ 110


Automatic Temperature for Charcoal Smokers (Weber Kettle, Weber Smokey Mountain models, Big Green Egg Smokers, Drum Smokers, etc.).

Our team discovered the impact automatic temperature control can do for your turn ins when we added Rock’s Stoker BBQ controller to our main rig last year.  Additionally, it gave us a chance to actually get some rest instead of monitoring our rig temp, fuel level, etc. This led us to consider adding a second stoker fan and adaptor kit for our Weber bullets.  In our search we stumbled upon the IQ110.  We were intrigued by the design, and reached out to John Kennington, owner of, for more product information. A few weeks later, we were sent a demo model to conduct a review, so here we go.

Weber Kettle Smoking: Pulled Chicken

Pulled chicken is one of the most delicious smoked meats you’re going to get your taste buds on. It’s also one of the healthiest. It is far superior to grilling chicken. It requires more patience as it takes on average 3-4 hours to do, not counting prep time. The end product is the most juicy, succulent, and tasty chicken you will ever eat. It is well worth the wait. Today, I am going to demonstrate just how easy it is to make pulled chicken from a whole chicken (using techniques bestowed upon me by the Chicken King of the Midwest, pitmaster Matt Frampton, a fellow author on this site.

Weber Kettle Cooking – Smoked Spare Ribs

There’s a misconception out there that you must have a smoker to slow cook meats.  Hang on kettle lovers, bear w/ me for a second.  What I’m trying to point out is that there’s a lot of people that don’t understand that the Weber Kettle is in my opinion, the most versitile rig for the money and you don’t need an offset firebox rig, a “pellet popper”, a Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker or any other “smoker” to slow cook meats.

Keep reading if you want to see how it’s done.  For you long time BBQ chefs………..there’s some pretty pictures to look at.
