I bought a 26 last year. Had to order a replacement bowl as it had a few chips in the porcelain. The replacement was perfect and I have been happily cooking away ever since. LOVE the 26.75 kettle! The thing with Weber... although it may be a hassle, you’ll end up with a great product even if it takes an attempt or two :)

Beautiful food and rig. Weber will go the extra mile to make it right. They always have for me.

Thanks Kevin!

Pretty much. I know Weber handles their problems really well. It was just that there was too many on this one. I emailed them now so we shall see.

Thanks brotha! Well, priorities.

Is that only for indirect grilling, or do you run them the same when smoking?

Back 25+ yrs ago I had many problems with Weber kettles. No internet back then. No store help.
Since then I only buy the 14" smokey's to build mini wsm's for friends and family.
I suppose that's how they ended up for the pic for smoking I always have the exhaust over the meat and opposite the SnS. Though I did have the exhaust directly over the SnS on this cook to direct most of the heat out asap to help for a nice long simmer.

Weber is very good for the most part but this one had a few too many issues. Sent them an email today.

Yup! I was surprised until I went and reviewed my order to make sure they sent me the right pan. Turns out there is only on sized drip pan.

Thanks Norm!

Yep! No way the replacement bowl was damaged during shipping. It was secured and absolutely no damage to the box but still had a bend and enamel cracked handle. You figure they'd check the replacement part for damages prior to putting it in the box. Don't know who's in charge in QC.

I meant after one cook I already love it and they do stand behind their product but I don't feel like I warrantying more than one part right out of the box. After all the annoyance it's still worth it. You'll def like it.

I'd love to have that problem. I can eat boatload of cilantro and I substitute parsley with it all the time.

Yup! Chipped bowls, out of round lids, out of round ash catcher assembly that doesn't fit right, bend legs, rubber fitting on the front leg falling right out...

That food looks great to me.

Weber does have great CS but you are right, the quality is not like it used to be. I used to be a huge Weber fan and still own several but I don't use them much anymore. Hopefully you get everything ironed out with the grill.

Most definitely. They're service is top notch but it's still annoying to have to work you multiple problems on a new cooker.
