Help me make a decision. MBH vs HC
« on: August 10, 2018, 05:26:47 AM »
I only have room for one. Should I take the MBH or Happy Cooker? Price not being considered since they are basically being given away and both about an hour drive. Both are being held for me but one has to stay.

Is neither an option?   The mbh is messed up in the legs, all “caddywampus”.

The mbh is a 26 maybe. Look at the triangle, it has 4 spokes.

The bottom of the leg where the wheel should be looks weird though. Not sure, looks like the end of the leg is round.

The happy cooker may have an internal ash pan too.

Get them both. Decide later on what to keep.

ISO Grey Charcoal go anywhere.

The HC has the ash pan intact. And I'm leaning towards the MBH being a 22. Here's another shot

That grate looks like it's sitting pretty low inside the bowl. I'm still leaning towards that being a 26. Maybe someone else with a 26 handy could count the bars in their top grate. I'm not near mine and can't.

Oh wow if so that's awesome. I know the legs are all "caddywampus" but it should be repairable right?

Take the MBH and take the internal ash pan out of the HC.

Top vent is close to handle like on 22.5 above where as 26 has a large gap. So 22.5 I'm guessing? Also if it matters the 22.5 in question is an A code (1979)

If you already agreed to buy both.....maybe you should buy both.  Asking someone to hold onto something for you and then bailing on them is exactly why its hard to get people to agree to hold onto stuff!

Buy them both. I’ll take the HC if you don’t want it as long as it has and comes with the IAP.

They offered to hold them for the weekend on their own. I didn't commit to anything as far a deal goes so they were just being kind. I probably will get one this week and the other the next.

I think the lid vent is too close to the handle to be a 26” .. but strange factor on the 4 triangle bars ??

That MBH looks like a pieced together unit.  Sure looks like a 22” with 26” triangle (& maybe legs) to me.

+1

Integrity is worth more than a little time & gas.  Grab ‘em both, to keep your word, and make the best kettle out of the parts.  Use the extra lid for when you’re running a vortex/poortex.

When you go to  pick up either one....ask if they have the 26er around.

The 26er is the prize if it's there.
It's not how big your fire is...but how you cook with what you got!
