John B from southeast mich.
« on: February 18, 2018, 07:01:02 AM »
I recently bought a used 1970s 22.5" kettle in great shape off of another forum member that told me about this site.
Looking around it looks like a great bunch ow Weber people with vast knowledge of kettles.
Hopefully I can get in here and learn what works and what not to bother trying.
Today I'm making a expanded metal basket for my charcoal. Measures about 15x7x3 and leaves plenty of room for a good size drip pan next to it.  I shaped it to look like a slow n sear.
Thanks for having me and hope to show off some good Q pics this spring and summer.
