Why I deserve this, because well, I never had a kettle, I do not have a basic grill that runs on something other than gas.

I went and "bought" one once from target, just to hear my wife, take it back, you have to many grills, tried to explain that it's charcoal, didn't work.

thanks ashmont, love the contests you do

I deserve this because this kettle is actually in better shape than mine and I can use the extra parts to make a UDS.

I deserve this because I only need the lid and that one half grate as they are rare like rocking horse poop over here.

Ya I know this is only a US based award only but I thought I would cry out loud anyway.

I deserve this because after all the time I have been searching CL, all of the kettles I have found have been in either Omaha or Lincoln. It is a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive from out here in the Styx. A Weber kettle would allow me to get back to "basics" and refine my Q abilities to actually turn out bite through skin on my chix, as well as indirect cooking for ribs.

I can't even find one new around here without dropping $100. I have searched at Wal-Mart, and have found only cheap imitations.
If I am the lucky one to win, I would make it a priority to clean her, to bring her up to being worthy of being a piece of equipment that any Brethren would be proud to own.

Feel my pain, Brothers???

I deserve this because I'm picking up a chit load of food grade drums tomorrow and will need the lid to make a "Traveling UDS". Got the idea from Roo-B-Q'n on my Free Drum thread. http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=51798 Thought I'd just build another UDS and see where it ends up. If a local or visiting Brethren needs a pit he / she can use it then pass it on in their travels.

I deserve this because I would give this Weber to a friend of mine that is also a co-worker at my job. I bring Q to work every Monday and he doesnt have a grill and has been wanting to Q ever since I started bringing it to work.

He has 4 kids and 2 jobs. Not nearly enough time to be with them on the weekday, but on the weekends he has time. I think it would be a great early christmas present for him and his family.

I have a kettle and a gasser n my APT balcony, so personally I dont need it nor have room. It would be for a friend.

Saw this thread this morning, and thought maybe I'd stop back and enter. Glad I waited, because I can't possibly beat Bacon's submission. Somebody buy that brother a beer...........

Can't do it.... just rescued a cheap 22 1/2" kettle OTG knockoff w/table (Kingsford-Masterbuilt). Will probably add smokenbeer's beercan baffle.


However... will vote for Bacon!!! Attaboy Brother!

I am not in need of this bbq pit, but am entering for my oldest son Nick. Nick doesn't have a bbq pit as of yet. He, his wife, and baby do enjoy bbq but to this date has not gotten a bbq pit due to the struggles of a new marraige and all that goes along with that. I have been watching the CL and other related ways to get him a kettle but to date have not been successful. I think that my son Nick and his new family deserve this prize.
