I'm going cold turkey.  I'm done. 
Yeah... Good luck with that.  :-\

I wish I could offer help. Well... I can. If you have mostly black grills or covers for the grills that you co have, it is easier to slip another one in the mix w/out being noticed. SWMBO surprisingly has not noticed a SS Performer, 22.5 WSM and SJG. Of course the SJG hardly counts. Or maybe she just didn't say anything.

As as far as the 26 goes, I sort of went down that road. I almost passed up an unused '85 26 because SWMBO said a co-worker was going to give us their old green 26 because they were moving. But of course there never was a green 26 and when confronted with a ruler, it turned out to be a 22. ;) Lucky for me it did not involve a long drive. I've generally been lucky with CL deals considering how many ways they can go bad.
kettles, smokers...

I'm a goner, but you people still have time - save yourself!
Your not leaving us are you?  ???
Sadly, no.  I'm around for life.  ;D

I just got done taking out the trash & getting the mail.  At 11:30 at night.  While all of that is true, I also unloaded the shrunkin' 26.75 (22.5) I bought and carried it, in the dark, and set it with the rest of the Webers on the patio.  Incognito.  Wonder if I can get this one cleaned up & sold before she notices it.  8)
I've always had gas...  And now a bunch of kettles because of this place.  Thanks!

It's just black?  Wood handles at least?  Does it have an ash bucket?

Probably not, you're in trouble, just like most of the rest of us......

Hello my name is Bob.   "Hello Bob"
I am a weberholic. It's been three days sence my last fix. While at my sisters wedding Saturday, out side getting photo's done I had my phone behind my sister keeping track of a eBay auction that was ending in three minutes. I screwed up at least five pictures while looking at my phone and ended up getting yelled at by the photographer, my sister, my wife and my mother!!  ;D

Yep we have it bad ;)  ;D  8)  8)

Yup, black.
Nope, light gray plastic handles.
Yup, all silver ash catcher.  (A 2009 stamp)
Also has a green triangle.  Since I'm still new, kinda thought that was cool.

Oh, it's also assembled wrong in a couple of ways.  I'll start a new thread when I clean it up.  :)

Great post, Bob.  A couple years ago we were at a New Years Eve party where I slipped outside because I had an auction ending.  I thought that was bad, but wedding pics?   lmao

Hilarious Bman. I too know what you're talking about. But I had a great experience the other day. My eight year old daughter was telling me that I had too many grills. My wife instantly chimed in, "But we love Daddy having grills. He cooks us all that great food. We don't want him to stop." I thought to myself with a small grin, "My evil plans are are working perfectly. The entire family is nearly assimilated. Bwah, ha, ha, ha." (That was an evil laugh, BTW)

In twenty years of marriage I've learned the secret to having hobbies and not being given too much grief over them. Make sure they produce something good! I have settled in to three hobbies: Woodworking - I've built most of the furniture in our home, deer hunting - my family goes nuts over the summer sausage I make, and Weber grilling - I'm a grilling rockstar in my own home.

If the the productive nature of my grilling ever starts to wane in my better half's eyes I just play the "at least I'm not..." card. You know, "Hey, I could be at the casino - strip club - bar - insert your vice here. At least when I'm tinkering with these grills you know where I am. I'll bet a lot of wive's wish that's all there husbands were doing!" Yes, it's a last ditch defense tactic but I'm not above going there when threatened.

Just keep making the goodies, make stuff for the in-laws, invite all your family friends over and feed them. A final tactic, and I don't recommend it because of how you would suffer, stop cooking for a while and let everyone see how much pressure your grilling takes off the family, and how much money you might save when you aren't going out.

You have thought this out pretty good.  Hope you don't mind if I use a few of those tactics.  Thanks

Well said Mark. My bride was taken back at first. I did use the "At least I'm not...". She likes a break to go out to eat, then complains, says I make it better(Yea me!). Then I look across the tables and see all the waste of cardboard cocaine(Pull Tabs)...
At least when I spend $20-$40, I have something in the stable, not going to a landfill.
