This brings my current kettle stash to one 22 1/2" gold with smokenator, one 22 1/2" gold nib, one pre 1985 22 1/2" with wood handles plus the two I just came home with. All this plus the gassers (3) and the smc (not to mention my previous webers) must make me a Weber nut. I will be posting pics of creations in the near future.

Geez, that is sweet... I am so jealous, but I am glad they are going to a good and faithful weber family

Default Love My kettle

I got my OTS for 1/2 price at HD when they switched styles this year. It had a few dings, but nothing that cannot be touched up. I bought a gold grill for the flip convenience.
It has passed my UDS in use.
My latest smoke:
OTS, 18 1/2 WSM (Betty), iQue110, 30" MES

In a pinch an old kettle works great as an oversized lid:

Never saw this thread until today! Been eating off of or cooking on a Weber kettle since I was born 34 years ago. As soon as I moved out, I bought an 18" kettle because it was all that would fit on our 3rd floor apt balcony. Bought our first house 3 years later and my parents gave us a Performer as a house warming gift! Cooked on that for 8 years almost daily. I bought a 22" OTS for a Cajun Bandit setup, and wound up selling my Performer to someone who really wanted a 2nd one. Kettles rock, and I can't imagine being without one.

Can I use my chimney to start the briquettes & then separate them using a skewer? Or just push them over to one side then use an aluminum drip pan with water?

Love my kettle. You can have it when you pry it from my dead cold hands. Heck, bury me with it!

You only fail if you do not try.

I just found this thread too. My Weber kettle is awesome, and family and friends always seem to appreciate everything I cook on it. My 20 y/o son just left for his summer job, and though he only has a small car, when he packed for his 3 1/2 months away, the front passenger seat was cradling a Weber 22 1/2" I recently picked up on Craigslist. Looks like I've taught him something anyway! Now I need to search Craigslist some more if I wanna build that UDS before August.......
