Good morning and justvwanted to say I'm so glad to have stumbled onto this website. I just purchased a Weber 22.5 gold series after reading all the positive reviews from the Wal-Mart website. Curious to know what y'all thought about them and how they cook up smoked ribs and chickens? Of course I will be grilling some thick cuts of steak as well.

If you want post a picture of your setup as well.

Thanks

The Weber will hold the fuel and you can light it. From there it's all up to the pit master. Welcome.

Weber makes a great product and has awesome customer service (in my experience). I don't have the gold, but have been thinking about getting one. Several people here have them.

I have a Weber Smokey Mountain and love it.

Welcome to the forum. Lots of good stuff here!

Welcome! The Weber is one of the all-time greatest do-it-all cookers. Do some searches here and check out how members do indirect cooking, high-temp cooks for pizza and steak, etc. The biggest tip I can give is to buy a chimney starter and stay away from lighter fluid.

I have an extensive WSM collection, so I have never tried to cook ribs on a kettle, though others have.

It is difficult to imagine not having a Weber kettle in my arsenal.

but it does look like you got the indirect method wired.
