Default 26" kettle @ Menards

Char Broil licensee has a 26 incher @ 74.99 @ the local Menards. This is a pretty fair kettle w/ enclosed ash catcher. Equivalent Weber's I've seen @ 299 @ Ace.

While it may be a 26" grill, it's not equivalent to a weber

Ever here the saying you get what you pay for? You can buy ten of those or one Weber.

I picked one of those up last week while Menards had their "11% Off" rebate going on. The plan is to start on the 85 gallon drum that 4Dueces delivered to me a while back .

Keep it in the garage or buy a cover for it and it will last awhile.

I love my 26.75" weber. I wouldn't trade it for 5 of those char-broils.

I have the 22.5" version of this and left it outside. Cooked on it quite often, but it didn't even last 2 years. the bottom rusted completely off. As some said, you get what you pay for.
