My Weber 22.5" kettle is still my "go to" cooker.

I love using the WSM, and I often plan weekends around cooking on it, but my kettle is something I can, and often do, use every day.

My main set up is a trailer with two Fatboys and a Competitor on it and when I need extra room or for a pig it's the Lang.

My sig also says it all. I have 2 CG's w/sfb... one for beef and chicken, the other for the pork products. The Weber's get used only once in a while, not near as much as the CG's, they are my main cookers.

BTW, did Muzzlebrake say he puts his meat in fatgirls in the woods out back pass it on....
