Nobody helped me get into Webers, but I sure as hell could use somebodyís help getting out!

Sorry, but there's no exit doors here ;)

Funny enough it was my wife that always wanted a (single) Weber grill but I always said no because Iíd just buy whatever grill was cheapest at Walmart. Now she wishes I didnít have so many of them!

I was looking for a bbq forum for recipes to cook on my square grill. So here I am and it seemed every 3rd word was Weber. I started looking for a green egg, but even the used ones were more than I was willing to spend. Finally thought the ones with wheels and a decent table on the side for plates is the type I was going to buy. These run 300 and up used, but patience won out and a man had one for $100. Wasting no time I was at his house the next morning and didn't try to dicker on the price either. His wife bought him a gas grill for Christmas and I could tell he didn't want to sell his Weber.

Labor Day 2009, my friend cooked the most amazing chicken tenders on his weber performer, I knew this was the missing link to make my life complete.
I am not a collector, but I do have a small collection.

My dad had a couple of different Weber kettles when I was growing up, which made me appreciate charcoal over gas, and Weber as a brand. In 2002, still a newlywed, I told my wife I wanted the SSP I saw at home depot.  She and my in-laws all pitched in and got me one for my birthday.  I've never owned anything else but Weber kettles since.

My Dad,
When we were kids in the late 60s he would drive home from work on trash day using different routes. He brought afew different types but later only keep Kettles   he also made his own chimney from a 3lb coffee can and a can opener. Left home and 6 or 7 yeare later I got my first cheap grill then finally in the 90s I got a kettle. And now I have afew. I love the process and the smiles I can bring to the world.

YOU, ALRIGHT? I LEARNED IT BY WATCHING YOU.

Thatís not fair. My interest in Kettles developed naturally. You all just enabled my Weberitis.
