HERE’S HOW TO COOK LOW AND SLOW ON THE WEBER MASTER-TOUCH PLUS KETTLE:
Place the char ring in the centre of the charcoal grate.
Pour Weber Barbecue Briquettes into the charcoal ring (see quantity table). Spread the briquettes out, ensuring that the diffuser plate can sit flat on top of the ring.

Burn Time (Low and Slow 95 to 135°)
Adjust the bottom vent to the fully open position.
Place three fire-lighter cubes in the centre of the briquettes and light. Wait 20 to 25 minutes for the centre briquettes to light.
Note: By lighting the briquettes in the centre, they will slowly burn from the inside to the outside, creating even heat during the cooking time.
Place 2 to 4 smoking wood chunks around the perimeter of the lit fuel.
Place the diffuser plate ontop of the char ring, ensuring that it sits flat. For best results, place a disposable drip pan, filled with warm water ontop of the diffuser plate. This will help regulate the temperature inside the barbecue, catch food drippings, create moisture and help to infuse flavour into the meats.
Set the cooking grill in place and put the lid on the barbecue with the lid vents open. Preheat the cooking grill for approximately 15 minutes, or until the temperature has reached the “smoke zone” (95°C to 135°C).
Once the barbecue has preheated, brush the cooking grill clean and place the food in the centre of the cooking grill, above the drip pan. Put the lid back on the barbecue.
Swing the bottom vent to the smoking position (pictured). Once the temperature returns to the smoking zone, regulate the temperature as needed by adjusting the top vent. To decrease the temperature, close the top vent slightly, to increase the temperature, open the top vent slightly.
Now the Mastertouch Plus is set and ready to slowly roast your favourite meats.
