Greetings from New Jersey
« on: July 11, 2021, 05:01:22 PM »
I have been cooking on my gas Weber Grills for the past 30+ years.   I have not cooked on a charcoal Weber Kettle in 35+ years.  (Except that one time we rented a house that had a Weber Kettle).   I have now inherited a Vintage 1969 Weber Statesman with Side Table and Rotisserie Ring.  Question: Do I try to use this gorgeous kettle or turn it over to a charcoal aficionado?

BTW: This group appears awesome

Welcome aboard from a fellow gasser and newbie to the forum! I say cook away 8)
Happiness is found under the lid of a charcoal grill.

Welcome from Huntsville, Alabama.  Sounds like you have a golden opportunity to learn on a classic beauty.  Try it out and see how you like it, you won't hurt it.  Take care of it and share pictures of your cooks here!

Welcome from Doraville, Ga. I say give it a try, if you don't like it I'm sure you could sell it.
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Welcome from Rome, GA.  I grew up in northern NJ.   Go ahead and cook on the kettle a few times and then decide if you want to keep or sell it.  A vintage redhead will sell, but It never hurts to have both a charcoal grill and a gasser.
