My first GA Charcoal Grill
« on: April 30, 2018, 08:22:07 AM »
Just scored at lunch.

Charcoal GA with CI grates
Weber full size chimney
Weber mini chimney
1 pack of Weber lighter cubes
1 Weber grate scraper
Half bag of charcoal
Wood chips




I didnít do any research, just pulled the trigger. What would the GA and CI grates cost new?

Grate score and CGA with CI grates is killer combo !! GA is 59.99 plus 50 for CI grates

Nice. Be careful with the air dampers on the sides. I no longer have fingerprints after my first use.

Tell you what @HoosierKettle I'll be cooking on it this week and if I end up not liking it for whatever reason you'll get the first crack at getting it from me.  I also haven't forgot about the red lantern, just been super busy these past few weeks.  I'll get it packed up hopefully this week.

I have a trusty SJ that I've been using for three years.  Since getting a CGA with a damper plate it's a lot more versatile.

Much more room to effectively reverse sear.

Thanks fellas. So far I like it but I donít like that there isnít any place for the lid except the ground.

I love the CI grates and the space to do direct and indirect.
