Dude I have to keep track of thousands of members I can't remember who has a smoker lol. Your name is JayT right?
^ That’s it, in a nutshell. I want a charcoal grill; wife wants propane. Trying to pick my battles, so I was looking for a compromise that wouldn’t break the bank.Ashen said:I think he is interested in the charcoal direct grilling side of things. which is why I suggested a mod he could use in the smoker.
^ THAT’S probably gonna be the planThe Hot Pepper said:...get a nice new stainless steel gas grill ... AND a Weber KETTLE. No not a WSM, a kettle. That's all you need man and it is the classic backyard griller, they cook perfectly.

Find an older weber genesis, get new burners, flavorizer bars, and grates if it needs them, and you will get some major years out of it. And it should fire up really easy and your wife may actually use it. Then, get a used kettle. You can scrape all the porcelain parts on both grills with a razor and get them back to damn near new. Then, instead of a wsm, get a cajun bandit stacker, or some kind of stacker, which will basically make your kettle into a wsm.
P.s. dont get that combo grill
My forest Gump mower is in the shop right now! And dont you dare try to intervene on Mike's weberitis!stettoman said:Whatever you ultimately acquire, I can't wait to hear about the experience.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT FALL INTO THE TRAP OF A WEBER-ADDICT. I can't help but think of the neat, sporty, semi-functioning lawn tractors Andy could have had if someone would have just done an intervention....
I hear ya, they look nice , but not cheap. The only ones I've seen are relatively small. I haven't seen any reviews on them. ( haven't looked for a review either)Walchit said:I'd definitely wait for them to get the kinks worked out. Well I mean I'm probably never gonna get one, but that's cause I dont like spending over 1000 on a grill lol
