Cool Breaking In The Weber 26--Mother's Day--Pork Carnitas--Live Cook

I ordered it a month or so ago



Put it together today and not without some issues. Kinda...well really Pi$$ed at Weber quality but that's anther thread

Next to Redhead for comparison. I really do love my Redhead BTW. The problems I had with the 26 can't even compare but let's move forward



Full SnS set up and pissed at SnS also for not making a 26 sized drip pan



Guess my fault for not reading the "fineprint". Could've just used the old drip pan but anyway



Fully loaded kettles I suppose minus the pan issue



Love the almost 90* lid tilt on the 26



Comparison pics



Pork butt and kettle????? Which TD to enter?



Cut the best port of the butt out









Dang this thing is BIG!! Fits my 6 QT Lodge enameled DO



As much as I'm pissed at Weber they do make a great product. Must be my turn to come across some lemons on the kettle part. Again another thread



Time to brown up the pork butt in lard



So far so good and stay tuned!

Lemme guess. The vent/ash catcher was installed wrong. Facing out the back rather than the side. What ever it’s still the King of all kettles!

You sure guessed wrong my friend. This isn't my first kettle. Try two defective chipped bowls and an out of round lid.

Can't believe you are just setting that up. Don't feel too bad, I have a 44" smoke hollow propane smoker, I bought back in November, still in the box. Apparently I really needed it.. Looks like you are making the best out of a bad situation. That drip pan would have ticked me off too. They market the SNS for the 26", that should include all pieces. From my understanding the blocking of the bottom grate, is important for the SNS to work properly.

Looking forward to seeing what's next. I'm guessing tacos?

Boo Yaa brother! I'm telling we eerily think the same.

Well, I had a situation that delayed things but all is good now. Thank the Lord!

I was lucky no chips on mine. My friends lid was chipped on the rim of the lid pretty bad. Now I have a lid for an 85 gallon use one day! Cool looks great so far. It will be spectacular as usual I'm sure!

Must be all the nitrates we eat.

Happy to hear things are looking up. It's never good, when you don't get time, to blow some smoke.

Congrats and sorry to hear about the defects. It almost sounds like it was mishandled in shipping but I think they are packaged pretty well. Surprised it would get out of Weber QC with defects. Anyhow, I think you will enjoy it. I love my 26'er. It's the Alpha Male of all my cookers.

Thanks Dennis! Not bitching but I've never had this many issues with a Weber product.


On that note, progress pics. I kinda let temps get away from me but I should be able to manage things. We'll see.
