Beck, many people have that problem down here. That's how I got my Performer for cheap. The HOA's in all the gated communities down here do not allow charcoal! They will allow propane, with a cooking area less than 100 sq. in. but no charcoal. I guess the smell of the smoke is somehow offensive to their more refined noses. Another reason why I can't live in one of their communities.
Weber Performer :mrgreen:, Weber Genesis Silver C, Weber Smoky Joe, Mini-WSM, Great Outdoors -(Ugly Vertical Cabinet), cheap a%% Kingsford Kettle
In the end it will be okay.
And if it's not okay, it's not the end.
