Is it Thursday yet?????!!!

I'm just excited to have a 22" kettle. I use my dad's old one a lot (EZ date code) but the lid has become so warped over the years that it won't sit on the kettle straight. Still love cooking on it, but a new one will be a nice change. Especially one I don't have to pickup to dump the ash out of.

So the kettle is home safe and sound. Just needs to be cleaned up.

Despite being only used twice, the grates are in rough shape. According to the seller, they were left in the kettle during a rain storm with the top vent open. My thinking is that the grates were not used enough to be seasoned and then when exposed to excessive moisture, rusted to high heaven. I'm not too concerned about the charcoal grate but the hinged cooking grate is pretty bad. I'll have to clean it and make a judgement on whether to buy a new grate or not.

My plan is to power wash the inside bottom of the kettle this weekend to remove the two cooks worth of ash that was never cleaned out. Other than the rusty grates and the gummed up ash, its in sharp shape. Can't wait to get her fired up!

Would love some before and after pics!

Around here in late August, Target has big markdowns on accessories, including hinged grates for ~$10 or less.

I will try my best to do so. I will be over at the lady friend's parents' house Saturday (pending weather) to use her dad's pressure washer. With any luck I'll snap a few pics..

For that price and the cost of new grates, it's still a major score!

I'm looking for one myself. I used to have one just like that before I moved. I kept all my extras (rotisserie attachment with motor, wok insert <- never seen anyone else with one of those, I wonder if they still make them?) plus the wife just bought me a sweet grill pizza stone, and since I'm upsizing the smoker I need a good grill for everyday. Time to dig those extras out of storage!
Yes, they & others still make all the gear for the 22.5", just get another and get after it.... :)

Great Score! ...... The most versatile best cooker for the money IMO.
