Crazy. What size kettle, 22.5 or 18?

Sorry to be a pest, but the coals are resting on the charcoal grate, above the base of the kettle, right? I hate to assume things.

This sounds kinda like the "Minion Method". My only problem with it is using unlit briquettes. I don't like the chemically smoke flavor that it imparts on the meat, but I suppose that would apply to other methods as well. This same technique can be used with lump but its a bit trickier. I guess I just like lump better, to each his own.

To give credit where it is due, i believe this is where i got the idea.
As much as i like using lump it's expensive, iv'e never noticed a chemical flavor, i use no fluid and i know iv'e done worse thing to myself though the years
