The Weber Char-Q was only produced for 3 years between 2008-2011.
It’s a well built charcoal grill with porcelain coated grates and a cast aluminum body.
Because of it’s funky bottom vent I wan’t sure if I would be able to hold steady temps under 300 degrees.
Using the snake method it proved to be an excellent smoker holding temps under 300 the entire time with barely any vent adjustments and it barely used any charcoal.
Watch the video to see how it performed and the grill set-up to achieve pit temps between 230-290 throughout the cook without having to fuss with the vents much..
