As you guys can see, I put the fire/coals on the right side of the smoker.. with very few coals.
Numberous reasons for this.. Weber Summit holds heat like a Green Egg or others...
But I really am not wanting temps above 225....

So I can slow cook it, but get a good smoke flavor..

The gumbo is on the smoker now.... this is the second time I am using my wifes Pampered Chef Rock Crock... The black pot... Its quite a universal pot... So far I am pretty impressed... Go from the stove to the smoker.. then back on the stove when I am done. Beats the crap out of the foil pans I used to use... But its not the biggest pot,, thats its only weakness... bit small.. we all know size matters.

As it gets closer to the end of the cook I will add the other ingredients. Dont want them to over cook...

Not telling you yet... Its a surprise...

Keep checking back if you want an update

Added the chicken,
Kicking up the temp a bit, and putting the pot over the coals.

The coals you see on the left are not lit, they are left over coals from the last cook. This smoker is a mizer on fuel/coals... a tiny bit goes along ways.

Damn its tastes amazing...

Its not done yet... a couple of more hours...
