Preheat your charcoal grill to 275°F, planning for a longer cook. You will want to incorporate wood chips into your briquettes as well as use a steam pan.
If using a Kettleman™ grill, position 80 charcoal briquettes, side by side, in almost a complete circle around the edges of your Kettleman grill. Sprinkle about 2 cups of hickory chips on top of those briquettes and then top those with another 20 briquettes in a single circle. Heat about 15 briquettes in a chimney starter and then pour onto one end of the coal circle. Put the half-sized steam pan in the center of the circle and fill it half full with water, apple juice or other liquid of your choice. Place the grate on the grill, close the lid with the vents barely open, and allow to to come to 275°F.
HOT TIP: This briquette set up is known as a “fuse burn” because you only light one end and it burns in a pattern, giving long, low cooking temperatures.
