Boogiesnap: lol... The kettle is very nice.. but it's too much grill for me and I needed something with a table, since my last grill had two shelves. If they made a 26" performer I wud have stepped up to that.
Landarc: when you said you season it... as in the whole inside or just the grates? B/c I rather season it while it's still clean.
Caseydog: ty for the tip on the CI.
