Default My first weber

Just picked up my first weber off craigslist for $100.00 I think that was a good deal. It's a 22.5 inch gold touch in the blue. It was brand new in the box and hadn't even been opened. Any suggestions for the first cook or modifications?

I'd say that's a good deal. First cook: Steaks of your choice. I wouldn't mod it until you use it for a while.

I cannot think of any basic Mods needed on the Weber Kettle. You might want to pick up some Coal baskets for indirect cooking. Other than that Steak, Chicken or Burgers are always a good cook.

Hey, great score and welcome to the Brethren. I'd start off grilling something. Steaks are always a good idea to quote MattB. Then start learing how to cook things with indirect heat and smoke. Way fun.

Just fire it up and get it dirty, steak or burgers are a great start!

I agree with Marty. Play with it awhile and you'll find what you feel you need as far as mods go. My first Weber Kettle changed my life.

Good deal to me! Heck make a whole weekend out of it! I use my Weber all the time, and someone can have it after they pry it out of my cold dead hands, heck, cancel that, bury me with it ;)

I've done 2 things to mine. First was to put a second charcoal grate in so small pieces of lump don't fall through. Second was to install a thermometer in the lid. I'm glad I switched over from a gasser. I couldn't be happier.
