I have a weber gas grill with those flavorizor bars which pretty much block the flames. Does that help qualify this as "indirect" heat? Can I just add a pan of water and some chips wrapped in foil to simulate a smoker?

Indirect would be not over the flames. put the meat on the right side, use only the left burner. Put the chips over the flames. I am not to sure about water pan placement, but i would guess on the flavourizer bars, between the meat and the heat.

sledge is correct. Weber has a smoker box you can buy for your grill, or you can use the Rob Rainford method you mention. One part dry, two parts wet chips wrapped in aluminum foil. Punch as many holes as you can get with a fork... more holes = more smoke. I would place foil pack on grilling surface instead of on flavorizers. Put fire and wood on one side. Put pan of water under meat on other side so drippings fall into water pan. Get chips smoking then maintain about 250F until meat is done.

You can do it! Good luck.

I buy whole hickory chunks, soak them in water, then place them right on the Flavorizer Bars. Works for me. For now I do my ribs in the oven and finish on the grill.

Klose Pit some day! Very Happy

Thanks guys, your advice worked like a charm the other day.

Fired up half the grill, with wood chips in one of those metal wood chip holders, put meat on the other side of the grill, closed the lid @ 250F for five hours and perfect!!!

Congrats, yukoff - glad to help. Question for you... which Weber do you have and what smoke box did you use? I'm looking for a new grill and just surveying the field to see what works well. Thanks!

i think it's a Weber Silver B, but it's about 5 years old, purchased at Home Depot. I bought the smoke box at Home Depot as well, came with some chips, was about $8 i think.
