Finally!
« on: August 04, 2019, 07:28:51 PM »
Finally found a WSM 22.5 for a decent price. Advertised as an 18, gotta love the upside down build. Cleaned up nicely but still needs a few items. Ordered a coal grate, thermo, and cover. This thing is a beast!
11 kettles, 2 WSMs, and 1 lonely gas grill!

22's are monsters, congrats! Love my 18.
I swear, when I score a great deal on a 26" I'll stop buying grills... So often.

I probably should have bought this one for 150, but I tried to talk the guy down even more, and he wasnt a haggler. Lol

I just bought a 22 on Saturday for $75. I need to work the door a little and maybe add a gasket to it and it will be good to go. I always store my WSM's with the center section upside down so water says out...even under the cover.

Sounds like a good idea. A lot of crud builds up in the gap. The door doesnt appear to fit as snug as my 18 does - may need to seal it.

The door on my 18 fits much tighter than on my 22 and I still have a gasket on it. I never use the door so I like it sealed up tight.
