Hey y'all. My first post. I started with a Smokey Joe over 20 years ago. Great little grill. After the legs rusted off a friend took it and fabricated new legs and kept it smokin'. Later I got a 22.5 which served me well for years. I had to leave it in New Mexico cuz it wouldn't fit in the trailer when I moved back to TX.
I will have another one! I have a new Smokey Joe which works fine for the wife and I, but too small for entertaining. I've been using a cheap Uniflame kettle for now, but it's not the same. Definitely not built to last like a Weber.
Glad to be here. Lots of great info. Watch for my post in a few days about my rescue of a NB offset smoker. Needs work but the firebox and cooking chamber are still intact.
