Title: 18 Fever: The 18.5 appreciation revolution.
Post by: Craig on September 06, 2014, 09:50:10 AM
Show us your 18s! Cookers, lookers, mugs, pugs, heirlooms, Wood Dales, Golds, Jumbo Joes... This is a salute to the original "compact" kettle.

Great thread Craig - the 18ers always play second fiddle, but are some of the most useful grills around! Here's a few from me:

I also want to get a 2015 Performer, but I didn't want to wait, so I got this beauty to keep me happy for now :)

It's a great grill. I know that even when I get the 22 I'll be using this one all the time.

i agree 100%. and as I've proved w/buddy, hinged grates and coal baskets can even propel them into "all day cooker" status.

My dad gave me his faded '70s blackie after I got him a nice C&B Performer. Shown here last night heating up. I try to use this as often as I can, and with a family of 4 that's pretty much a given. Love how convenient it is to move around, I usually just lift from the side handles.

Not sure if I want to try cutting the front leg square to fit a cap. I DO want to try refurbishing the handle--good shape, just weathered.

The twist pan, on a firebrick, works as a temporary heat shield for my 18.5" WSM (but I want a better solution there):

My other 18.5", a JJ, saw a lot of duty this spring and summer, doing most of the cooks. Shown here looking smart with zavod handle, Tel-True and lid handle:

I'd leave it. Pretty much all the '60s and '70s kettles have this going on with the front leg to one degree or another. It's what we call the "dirty angle". 

That's a nice '49'er!

@bear, that is a very very cool and unique grill.  You must be a very proud grillfella.
Is it weird that I want to use that pic as the wallpaper background on my phone?[emoji53]

Is there any way to tell the difference from an 18 and 22 when looking on sites like cl?  I don't have a good enough eye to tell the difference in size from a picture and the ads rarely specify size.

@HoosierKettle,
The position of the vent in relation to the handle is different.  The 22's vents are "inline" with the handle whereas the 18's vents are are not. 

Here is a 22"(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161009/b8accca88fab7e8cde26abf9f6c7cfca.jpg)

Yeah I think on the newest grills the lid vent is in line like the 18" were. And the lid thermometer is opposite side of handle. I don't like the new designs.

My one and only 18".  Dumpster rescue 1984 F code that I did some clean up on.  Installed a new ash sweeper and added the ash catcher.  It will get a full overhaul in the spring.  I am really enjoying cooking on it.

Here's my fleet of 18"s.  The black one was left out with the trash and I haven't had time to clean it up.  It appears to be a 1981 going by the vent code.  The green bud grill is a green bud grill...it's green which is neat.  [emoji854] It needs work too, but is fully operational and a pleasure to cook on.

Darn it. We had bring your own steak night at a friends again and I forgot to take more pictures. He has a performer with a beat up lid that I keep meaning to get a picture of and I brought my chopped 18. He has an elevation change on his patio that makes using my 18 easy. I grilled 2 filets on mine and I think he had 6 on his. I had it set up with 1 basket on one side and dumped 3/4 of a chimney in and around to set up a 2 zone cook. Steaks turned out great. Sorry not more pictures. I only took one.

Is there any way to tell the difference from an 18 and 22 when looking on sites like cl?  I don't have a good enough eye to tell the difference in size from a picture and the ads rarely specify size.

In addition to the differences in top vent location already mentioned (when comparing older grills ...) you might also notice that all 18's are essentially flat tops, compared to a 22's lid which is more domed. Maybe not quite as "flat" as a flat top 26, but certainly more so than a 22.

The WSM came complete with the original WSM bowl,  but I like the mobility of stacking it on a midget setup.  After seeing a post this week of a mystery SJ with leg sockets, Iím wondering if I could weld sockets onto the original WSM bowl to retain the stock vent positions. 

On a side-note, this older ďEOĒ WSM has a shallower water bowl/heat deflector, which I like.

As much as I love cooking on a 22" kettle, 18" kettles are a must for any true grillfella.

I picked up this 18 a couple three weeks ago.  Vent code is DU (2002).
Everything is in excellent condition, including the thumb-screw ash sweeps. I was very happy with that.  :D

This simple and classic look is what it's all about, IMO.

Thatís simple, the double-wide wheels & lowered stance make these awesome beach kettles.  Ultra stable, not gonna sink in the sand & perfect height for cooking from a beach chair. 

Who am I kidding?   Itís just cuz they look cool!!!
