Default Weber OTG 22.5 in the Philippines

I got my Weber shipped over to the Philippines a couple of months ago! Love'n it and we are doing both Filipino style BBQ (pork belly grilled on sticks) and American style (slower pork ribs and chicken) BBQ. I was so happy to see mine show up without any major problems or dents.

I also picked up a Smokenator 1000 to try smoking with it. The Smokenator is nice way to have more of your grill available without worrying about direct heat on your meat. But the charcoal available here has been problematic in terms of getting my Weber/Smokenator combo up to the necessary temperatures of 200F to 250F.

We are currently doing smoked ribs with a test run using coconut hulls (shells) as smoking material. There are tons of them around. They are used on fish and chicken in many tropical areas, but I haven't seen anyone try them on pork and report about it.

The photo shows my Weber on my balcony in Baguio City. Past the ridge, where the grey area is clouded out is the western coast of the Philippines (La Union Province) and the South China Sea, which is a pretty view on a clear day. The Smokenator is installed, but no food grill on it yet as we were just setting it up.

EDIT: Just popped into the Virtual Weber Bullet site, and there was a thread about wood handles. Looks like some in Fort Worth is selling them. Here's a link http://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/for/943199314.html


i know this is an old post but i just revamped my 1999 EE handles and they were looking pretty knackered, i used decking oil on them but instead of sanding so i didn't loose the logo i rubbed them back with medium them fine steel wool.
was hard work and they didn't all come put perfect because obviously the rear ones better protected and the top one cops the weather and heat.
but they look good and suit my modded satin black and timber slab cart.

my dad was a sales rep at a company called briscos in new zealand way back as far as i can remember, they took on the agency for weber,. he brought home a brand new weber smokey mountain and i helped him assemble it, my dad wasn't very patient, he wanted things to turn black and inedible while he drunk beer.
this was in like 1981, he ended up using it for an incinerator to burn rubbish, now i look back I'm heart broken
... moral of the story is some people are to impatient to learn the benefits of a webber, why there are so many for sale second hand... greedily accepted by the likes of us

I have 2 (yes, only two) 22.5" kettles.



This green OTS has been with me 20 years. I've learned a lot using it and abusing it. I know a few drunks tripped over it (me included) but it is still going strong.



Last November I picked up this SS Performer and finally finished the restore this spring.

They reside on different sides of the house to avoid jealousy issues

The wind always blows at my house so I use it as a windscreen.

The MiniWSM and my 18.5" WSM fit in it. I bet a 22.5" would as well.
It is also very usefull for dutch oven cooking.

Added an EE Master Touch to the stable this week:




I cleaned it up and replaced the hardware with stainless. Restored the handles a bit. I did NOT buff any of the alluminum with steel wool yet but will, and will add a leg cap. At some point I will replace the ash sweeper.

The porcelain is in really good shape. I should add a picture of the wheels. They are in great shape. The 'whitewall' rubber is all intact.

This will be my daily use grill, so it does not need to be perfect. I am so glad I was able to find a local kettle in Arizona Wildcat Red! Next up, a Navy one ...

I really like the rack/table you have made on the homemade performer. That looks like a real usefull setup.

That grill is actually my backup grill for when I am cooking two different things- for example, on Memorial day. We hold a open house for whoever wants to come. We smoke a turkey on one grill, the other is hotdogs, burgers, or ?. We also make a large tossed salad. It is kind of potluck, except that no one is required to bring a dish. Worse case, we buy rice by the 50 lb bag, and it cooks quickly. It is also for people who have no family or friends, perhaps new in the area. I love it!
Otherwise, it is parked out of the way, thus the large wheels.
The frame is a discarded rack from a Gap store with a couple of AL trays I found while on a walk, held on with bungee straps. The ash tray is a discarded Dish network antenna.
