And get a vortex. Those are a game changer, worth buying if you can't make one.

I am not going to start the fire brick vs slow n sear argument again.

I picked up my 26 on CL for $175. I felt it was a bit overpriced, but around here there may be 1 - 2 on CL a year. I think that there aren't that many of them around compared to the 22s. It's a great grill and I love it. $300 for a new one is quite reasonable.

I was replying to this.
"I really want a 26" with a slow n sear, and was prepared to fork over not quite $400 for the two. But for $500 I can get a new brand new 22" kettle with a slow n sear and still have enough money left over for a (used) 22" smoker."
The $127.00 saved from not buying a SnS is a good chunk off the $300.00 for a 22" WSM. And you can get the 26" kettle.

I don't wan't a 22" smoker though, that was just an example of the amount of other hardware (both new and used) I could get for the price of the 26.
I'm upset that the 26" isn't as good of an option for me as I'd hoped. Even without the slow n sear and using firebricks like a neaderthal, I don't gain anything over my current gear that is worth $300 (to me)

The 26 is the pride of Weber's collection, imo. It can do it all. It's been $299 as long as I can remember but it's worth every penny. I cant do a 20lb turkey on a 22. No prob with the 26. The only drawback is it doesn't have as many accessory gadgets as a 22in. If that's your thing than the 26 isnt for you. Also, the cooking grate is heavy stainless steel. I believe the 22 is still plated steel but I may be wrong. Anyhow, buy it. You wont be disappointed.

Simple supply and demand. 22 weber kettles last forever and there is a large secondary market. Plus all the knockoffs. This drives down the price of used 22 kettles. 26 is not sold in big box stores (at least not on the shelves) and has no knockoff competition. This drives the secondary price up.

Rarely is something I really want a value price

They didn't know about them, yet. They were stuck on grilling.

He doesn't ship, sorry, didn't know that. He said he does it face to face so he doesn't have to bother with returns.

No need to argue about the difference in the two as the cooking results will be similar. I bought a 26" $135 that had only been used for smoking with the fire brick set up. There was quite a bit of crazing on the outside bowl where the charcoal had been banked against the inside. I don't think that would happen with the Slow-N-Sear. Other than that, the rest of the kettle appeared to be in nearly new condition.

About 1 1/2 years ago, I bought a slightly wind damaged 26" off of Kansas City CL for $125. I was the first to contact him and offered the asking price. He honored the deal and I felt lucky to get it.


Keep looking. They are out there.
