Default WGA Maiden Voyage

What a great little machine! I see why Phu, Padawan and all the others love it. I like it much better than the SJ.
Need to learn how much fuel to use and different setups.

WGA all the way!!

If you want some good tips on using your WGA, read through Phubar's threads--he's the man on one of those

I'm hoping some day I can come across a WGA charcoal. Unfortunately the one I have now is a gasser and I would much rather have the charcoal version.

I've been thinking about getting the WGA for a while now for its rectangular format of this grill as I like to do yakitori and kabobs often. They're not as practical to do on round grills, with lots of wasted space. And my home made kabob rack should fit nicely on this grill. :)

Great little unit, we take ours when we go holiday.
Looks like you have nailed the heat, that's a good looking feed mate

the sj is a great grill but it doesn't lend itself to certain types of cooks. just easier on a ga. for sure do not get rid of yer sj.

I'd say you're doing really well on the WGA. Nice looking Chicken and veg!

My brother in law has one at a holiday rental he owns in England, he just can't find decent charcoal. The charcoal in yours looks really, erm, square...

The rectangular shape makes it more versatile. Temp control is easier and it's easy to carry.
I've owned 4 Sj's over the years and my kids "borrow" them and they don't come back. lol But they'll never get their hands on the WGA!

I will get one, but only when there is a tamale pot produced to fit.
