The Smokenator 180 (for your 18.5" Kettle) is one of our favorite accessories for the Weber Kettle, turning it into a versatile smoker. The simple design makes it easy to use, and the price makes it a no-brainer!
You cannot cook directly over the unit as the heat would burn any food there, leaving about 80% of the Kettle for food. The Smokenator is great for smoking smaller cuts of meat and quantities such as chicken wings, pork chops, ribs, etc. or for doing single large cut items like pork shoulder or a full turkey.
