THIS........... *Revisited........ 10.9.17
« on: April 08, 2015, 11:34:28 AM »
***I reworked this in honor of all the tremendous cooks I've seen here as of late.....people that have been around awhile & folks that just stepped into their first Kettle ownership....you're doin' great!!!!
I don't always get a chance to post, but I do check in & see what's cookin' !!!!



......was the answer I gave to a question thread posed over on BBQ Bretheren:

Who's got a Weber 22" Kettle?  (and do you still use it, etc. ?)  by a fella name of Allboy of Tacoma WA.

Is this a trick question?

Oldest is a 26.75 "Fleetwood".....cooks pretty much anything you could throw in there.....







But, you're asking about 22's.........well........

This is a recent favorite...Lemon 1975 3-Wheeler.....vents are tighter than a brand new one, cooked all kinds of stuff already.....



Under heat...



Tweety says "Yes!!!"



I smoke or grill just about anything.....













Some are slightly customized....





Wife even gave up trying to get me to stop bringing them home.....then she started finding them....


She even cooks on 'em once in awhile, but only the Blue ones & only very high heat chicken....



3 or 4 are common....not really comfortable until 5 are running however.....







This might be the favorite....1969~70 Imperial Sequoia...in Avocado....





Little note for the wife:



Tri-tip is a pretty common item....


As are 'Turds, MOINKS & tenderloin....



Ribs are not a problem....







....or  a decent size brisket....



Beans go down under on most pork products...









Common setups....





or close to that for turkey....



....unless the Wok comes out.....









....or a little more fine-tuned setup for kabobs....



....or the corn rack....



....or for screamin' some lamb chops....



Taters get baked in all different forms....Hatch chile packets....



Giant bakers.....



...sometimes up top.....







...sometimes in the basement....



the 'Turd bowl or platter is always a favorite...







....or, persona;-sized meatloaves....



Heck, sometimes I don't even bother with plates & forks....just eat off the kettle......



Pre heat your splits....





Spring cleaning & finding a home for everyone can be an issue at the Kettle Orphanage....



....as all kettles must be dawg approved....





They are actually pretty helpful & earn their keep....



Id eat a 'Turd Sammich before I'd give up Webers....



Guess it's just in the DNA.......



What was the question?



Oh yeah, I have a 22" Weber & use it........






So....fire up & let's EAT !!!!!

For us, yeah.....but not everyone, everywhere thinks like that......I'm thinking the fellow was drifting back in memory just a bit as he said he'd had & used one off & on for 30 years.....

A lot of areas, a drum (UDS) or an offset of some type is the neighborhood standard....

A cajun fellow I got to be good friends with told me where he came from almost no one has a kettle, they all have deep fry pots.....

Alternatively, I very often see people with large offsets also have at least one kettle sitting next to it.....

He waited patiently 'till a bunch of people wrote in, then asked about smoking setups......

It's funny you should say that, at recent bbq comp I attended most teams had big offsets and pellet grills that must of cost thousands and they all had kettles sitting next to them. Like this-

It's almost like they are thinking if this hugely expensive smoker stuffs up, I know I can rely on my trusty kettle to get me out of trouble
