I am the mutha of all smokey Joe grillers. I love this little machine. The secret is to place your coals on one side of that little jewel. Get em hot and do your grilling thang; then place them critters on the cooler side of the grill to get all mellow till the throwdown. The holes in the top are pretty dang handy. If that smokey joe gets too hot close off them holes and cover up that rig. I used to take along smokey joe to the gulf shores of alabama down to the red sand lagoon and feed my little ones with hot dogs burgers and alabama smoked sausage. Best little thang on the planet. Somewhere in south alabama my little smokey joe is cooking away hotdogs and sausages fer my children and grand children. I may never see my little grill again. I won't find another little grill that can brang as much fun as my little smokey joe grill. Just add a small amount of charcoals ans let em get gray. Keep that grill clean. Brang plenty cold bevs. Party on with a Weber!
It lasts fer generations. Now where the hell is my smokey Joe? Damn younguns! LOL!
