WKC Posts of the Week- May 1-19 2014

This Saturday WKC Team Cali had a Norcal meet. It was an epic event with 8 members and a few dozen kettles of every vintage and color. Keep an eye out for a full writeup on the west coast meet master thread but for now here is a sneak peek!


If you are looking for ideas for the upcoming father’s day, we also just published an article for everything you want to know about kettle and meat temperatures at the official WKC Guide to Thermometers.

WKC statesman MartyG also had the opportunity to visit Weber hq and document an original ’52 George’s bbq kettle. Thanks, MartyG!
