Default Saturday Flea Market Score -- Weber Kettle

Got a brand new in the box Weber One Touch Gold for $60. It was sealed on the top and the bottom -- never opened. I opened it up there just before I gave him the $60 just to make sure everything was there--looks good.



Now I gotta decide what all I am gonna keep. I have a Mini WSM, Hasty Bake Suburban ($125 used), and now this Kettle. I am also going to build a UDS :) One of these is going to my brother as a Christmas gift (I don't mind giving him used stuff lol -- it's seasoned afterall.)

I heard the Weber Kettle is a chicken cooking machine. If this is so, please share how you cook your chicken in it :) I use the Hasty Bake Suburban for chicken now but it is wasteful on the fuel as you can't quickly and thoroughly snuff out the coals.

Given the choice, I'd get rid of the Hasty.

Thanks for the advice. My first cook in this kettle was a spatchcocked turkey (it finished about 10 minutes ago). It turned out really yummy, smoky & juicy--best turkey I've ever eaten.

I roasted it around 350F and used some pellets over the lump charcoal minion--indirect cook (skin up) -- flipped and crisped skin over coals before taking out.

While it roasted, I made some stock with the neck and back which I turned into a gravy. I guess it would have been better to add the stock to the dried out drippings (had a pan under the turkey) then thicken up that.. would of had more flavor.

Practicing for thanksgiving.

Here is a photo of the kettle put together--my boyfriend was kind enough to assemble it today.



And here is a photo with the spatchcocked turkey just put on:

Nice score! That's a very new one as it has the tool hooks on the handles.

I can't recommend anything to cut as the mini-WSM is one of my most versatile cookers and I have no experience with your other cookers. If you have two smokey joes (one for the mini and another one) I'd probably get rid of that.

Great s score . You can't have too many cookers. A kettle is one of the required tools.

wow ! that's a new 2013 model. as you cook you will find that there is very little that you cannot cook in it. granted you need to do a few mods but nothing out of reach.
start first by looking for a few fire bricks. get the full sized ones. then start reading about the weber kettle cooks folks are doing.
