I have been using a Weber 22 inch kettle grill for smoking (minion method) with good results. While poking around on the Internet I saw that Weber makes a 14.5 inch (grill diameter) Weber Smoky Mountain bullet. Compared to the 18.5 and 22.5, this is a little guy. It is 31 inches tall. I read a number of reviews where this smoker is good for small families. Since it is just the wife and me, I decided to get one. It has the usual excellent Weber quality control. At the six hour mark I added charcoal and replenished the water. This carried me to the nine hour mark. The butt temp was 187 degrees. I wrapped the butt in foil and a towel and let it rest for about an hour. The result was wonderful (used Hickory).
