I know for a fact after reading this forum that the 22.5 weber makes all the sense in the world for a guy like me. However a weber will never satiate my pyromania which is about half the fun for me. I'm attracted to offsets like a moth to flame. I have at least decided against the Home Depot Brinkman type offsets.
I bought a Char-Broil grill/smoker off CL for $40 and love it -- looks like an offset but minus the firebox. Yes it's junk (though the thermometer isn't bad amazingly) .So now I want something similar, but with thicker metal and better sealing and engineering, yet I don't want something that need a monster truck to tow. If it's small, I know I'll use it year 'round.
