Thanks Lawrence, I never get tired of seeing those old photos from the legendary meet. Golly, I also love seeing that incredible rotisserie you guys have out there. It's a real work of art and puts out some fine bbq I can tell.

Somewhere there is a rich guy buying my future ranch! He will show it off by cooking 90 bratwursts for all of his neighbors. He will utilize 25 lbs of Briqs to do this. Many fancy beers will be consumed. Then, in the revelry of the successful gathering he will be caught with the wife of the mayor in the basement.
The ensuing divorce will force the estate sale from which I will purchase the grand cooker.
Many PROPER cooks will follow; there will be rejoicing..... And pictures.

There were outtakes of course - seems like my wife and Jeff's were more interested in someones butt than the epic kettles on display!

BBQMiller/Mike, that before/after makes me want to cry a little bit.

Dang, I would *pay*, just to watch an RK cook.  You owners should charge admission.  Epic.

You guys like to whip out your big ones and show them to everyone else and brag about them...hmmmph

Well I tell everyone it is not how big your kettle is but how you use it.......... :P

It's weird but the thing that stands out from this thread for me is just how big a 22.5" WSM is. ;D

Did anyone notice how many chimneys are needed to light up these beasts?

Not sure what others use, but I used a full SJ-sized chimney to start up a low-and-slow cook....

Thanks Mike
I was surprised how well it cleaned up. It almost looked new once I was done with the restore. I think this kettle was submerged under water during Irene, but now you would never know it.
