BBQ on a Budget
« on: June 14, 2020, 07:06:29 AM »
Good morning from sunny California! Been cooking on a basic 22 kettle for multiple years now because Im too cheap to buy something larger. Yesterday I bit the bullet and went with a 26 kettle which Ill be cooking on today. I was really close to buying a ranch kettle but scared myself out of the purchase and almost regretted it instantly. Anyways looking to start modding and playing around with the 22. Looking forward to seeing what others have done.

Welcome from just south of Chicago, IL!
I swear, when I score a great deal on a 26" I'll stop buying grills... So often.

Broke her in with a practice run last night. 2 Tri tips reverse seared with a few baked potatoes and plenty of extra space.

Will be cooking three racks of St. Louis ribs this weekend.

Welcome from Doraville,Ga. you won't be disappointed in your 26 purchase
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Welcome from Huntsville, Alabama!  I recently acquired my first 26" as well and am looking forward to cooking on it.  Nice job on the tri tips.

The 26 is a solid purchase.  The Ranch is great, but it is really better to grab them second hand at a fraction of the cost.  They have their uses, but you will honestly probably use the 26er more.
