Default Large charcoal grill of choice?

Whis is the best grill available for cooking larger amounts of food? I love everything about my Weber 22.5 inch but the size limitations. Any ideas?

Well then the 26 inch weber kettle would be good for you. Or really splurge and get the ranch kettle.

Get another 22.5, I have 3, including my Performer. I have only had to use 2 at one time so far.
Edit: A plus for using 2 kettles is doing chicken on one and ribs or another meat on the other, that way, no worries about getting raw chicken juices on something else.

One 26.75" Weber = 508sq.in. Two 22.5" = 726 sq. in both cost around $300.00 for the gold models you could do it for less than $200.00 with the silver model

The 26 inch, and especially the ranch kettles take a lot of fuel. Then again, if you go double on the 22.5 then you will use double the fuel any way. I think your wallet is going to dictate your decision. If you can afford the big kettles, go for it. Collect them in all sizes and colors. I wish I had all sizes and colors.

You could go with the extra large BGE. Of course the price is a bit steep.

Two 22" webers. But 3 is better, and almost as good as 4.

I use a heavy duty Kingfisher Kountry Kooker 17"x36" 600 sq. inch that sells for $1100.00 found it on Craigslist for $120.00 love it so watch CL. Here's a pic of it in the background. It was gas and I converted to charcoal.

I would love to have a Ranch Kettle, but just can't justify $1100 for a grill right now.

I picked mine up off of CL for 450 in like new shape. The Ranch kettle sure gives a WOW factor.
