...Which forced me to stop by Ace Hardware this morning so I could grab a replacement ballcock kit. I even went out of my way to swing by this particular store so I could ogle the 26.75" Weber kettles no one else seems to keep in stock around here. After fiddling with it a bit I headed home to fix the john before the Giants / Reds game started.
All went smoothly until I realized the float rod that came in the kit was too long for my tank. Cursing my luck I flew out the door to the Lowe's a couple blocks away so I could get back in time for the game.
I walk in the door and low and behold, what do I see in their (greatly reduced) grill section? A 26" Weber. What da heck? They never carry those.
So I took a closer look...
I debated that one quite a bit but the better half convinced me it was meant to be.
This thing is big!
Welcome home! Decided "Big John" would be an appropriate name.
Thanks for looking!
