A chimney is definately a good way to light lump and avoid lighter fluid. @u_tarded advice is by the book, but you can also make a pile of lump on two sides of the kettle to balance the temp. Advantage to one side opposite the vent is the draw for a low and slow with smokewood. For plank cook, I would go with two lump piles. I have had many fabulous meals off a weber, it can be done. But after having a bge, it is so much easier to get great cooks.
I built a raised grid yesterday, got everything at my local ace hardware. They sell Weber product, but are not a bge dealer. Stainless hardware was almost as much as the grid, total was about $30. The grid I got is 17 inches, and has handles, which makes it super easy to pull in and out. Could raise it about 4.5 inches above felt line without dome touching. Want to get a set up from cgs or cgw, but for now this was a cheap alternative.
Used boneless thighs, cut into narrow lengths. Threaded two pieces per skewer. Covered in white bbq sauce, which swmbo and kids can't get enough of. Cooked raised direct, should have just gone direct. Firm bite, but tender and very moist on the inside. All but 4 skewers where eaten by family. Also had zuchini in evoo and season mix, no pic of the veggies that where cooked first, just got the pic of the lbge full of skewers.
