Smokey Joe

Found this little guy at Walmart for $15. Impulse purchase.

What can I do with it and what are the must haves?

I fill a small weber chimney with charcoal which is just enough. I move the charcoal over to one side for a direct and indirect zone. Place wood chips or chunks on the direct side grate and cook indirect for a few minutes while it is smoking, and then spin the grate around and reverse sear. This is great with steaks and hamburgers. When you only have a small meal it is better than the larger kettle as you use much less charcoal and it is easy to clean-up. When cooking indirect put some foil underneath to keep the bottom of the grill clean.  I consider the SJ to be gourmet grilling.  You do better with a wood handle, the plastic gets too hot.
