Not sure how I missed this the first time around but the Old Smokey 22 is my favorite thing to cook on currently. Welcome and looking forward to more of those pics and I really like that setup with the smokey built in!!

howdy- jalapen.yo.mouth Image

the 22" OldSmokey blows a Weber away
with the 8" below the grill grate you can cook chicken direct over the coals without flare-up
and with 12" under the lid you can cook all kinds of taller stuff you can't cook in a Weber
Image

since the fire grate is 8" below the grill grate the 22" OS isn't great for searing steaks,
so the trick we use to raise the fire grate for sear grilling and higher heat is to place cans on the bottom to raise the fire grate up to 4½" below the grill grate
Image

Image

cooking chicken 8" direct over the coals is great. if you don't want to, you never have to turn it if you cook it bone side down
it is the greatest cooker i have ever cooked chicken on
Image

Image

when you set it up to cook 1-sided indirect it runs in the mid to high 200°s depending on how big a pile of coals you're using
Image

Image

Image

Image

and when you set it up for 2-sided indirect it runs around 330°

As far as cooking techniques, they are similar to a weber kettle as far as setup and cook times. I frequent a lot of weber sites, due to the vast number of users for recipes, cooking/fire setup, times and techniques.
