Ok so far I would surmise the following. Definitely easier to keep the temperature lower using only one basket. Also easier to keep a consistent temperature. The smoke flow is also perfect going right through the ribs and out the top vent. I dont think there's a better method than this when it comes to air flow through the Weber kettle. Now I could be wrong here but it also looks like im getting more smoke then the two basket method... But I could be just overly excited about the interm results lol.
