I think even Swamprb would be on Kettle overload if he lived down here.

I started comming to this site about a year ago, looking for a better grilling experience. So naturaly I wanted to get my hands on a Webber Grill. I'm a little cheap on it because about 5 years ago I bought myself a Kenmore stainless gasser. Don't get me wrong, I love that grill but we all know nothing cooks like wood. So I've been searching high and low for about 6 months for a Webber Kettle high and low off of CL and yardsales around my neck of the woods. Nothing. Money's been tight and my wife wouldn't understand if I spent money on a new unit seeing how we have a nice grill.

I did find a small smokey Joe grill at a yard sale for 5 bucks, brand new. It's a start. This year will be my year.

Keep searching CL and you will eventually find one. It took me quite a few months last year, but I eventually got a 22.5 OTS in great shape for $20. Make sure you use multiple search terms including misspellings like "Webber".

I was going to say the same thing. Fmart, have you been searching CL only for "Webber"? The correct spelling is "Weber". However I must point out that I was looking for an older "Weber Performer" with the SS table. I found mine for $60, but only after I searched CL for "Webber".

Brand new and assembled for $50 sounds good to me. Home Depot wants $160 for a green OTG...

Is yours a OTS or a OTG?

You saved $110, that was a great score.

A=1
U=2
T=3
H=4
O=5
R=6
I=7
Z=8
E=9
D=0
This is true for double charachter date codes.
Single letter codes start with an A for 1979, and go up to P or something.

That is a great link, and just what I was looking for. I happened to rescue an (N) Weber kettle from CL for $12 to use for my UDS. Decided that is is a pretty nice grill to just cut up, so will be refurbishing it for now. Thanks!

I've been using Webers since 1978 and am on my fourth 22.5", this one is a silver. I'd like some advice. It seems that as soon as I put the lid on, the charcoal starts to go out, usually just retaining one hot spot. Over the years I've learned how to work around it by rotating the food and/or leaving the lid off for a few minutes to let some of the charcoal reheat but this is not the optimum Weber experience. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Vents top and bottom are wide open. Ashes completely cleaned out prior to burn. Doesn't matter if charcoal is completely covering the bottom or only partially. I use Kingston briquettes but have tried others. Placement of grill is in a patio area with walls on three sides so there is virtually no wind.

Appreciate any advice from the Brethren.

I have found the same thing, I try to take advantage of it. I have not found an answer to a uniform heat without going topless.
