Pictures of your 26.75 please
« on: January 17, 2014, 09:25:32 AM »
My new year Weber resolution is to seek out and obtain a 26.75.  They never seem to come up on C.L in my area (NorCal).  I may eventual go with a new one, but for now a good used one is the goal.  I ask those of you that have a 26.75 - can you please post some pictures in reply to this post?  I want to be inspired (and jealous).

Cheers,

Winz

Here's the two big guys next to each other for the 4th of July.
Are you looking for newer style 26ers or old ones??

Here's my humble black flat-top. I'm sure a used one will show up with your name on it, but a new one would be really nice, and you can get replacement grates for it!

My 22.5" OTP, dumpster salvaged 22.5", and the 26er I picked up off CL late last year.  Also have a JJ and 22.5" WSM in the garage


This is a 13lb chunk of ham I did for Christmas Day.  Plenty of room to spare


Just last weekend, I filled the 26er up with a 10" cast iron skillet of baked beans, a cast iron Weber griddle full of potatoes, and still had enough room to toss on three 1 lb porter house steaks. I love the 26er, especially for indirect cooking

Jeff - I am open on that issue.  I wanted to see some examples from our forum to get ideas.  I have a blue SS performer, so if you want to ship the beautiful big blue grill my way......

MartyG - good advice.  BTW - that classic black with the dark wood handle is pure class.  Very nice!

OopezoO - thanks for that post - now I am hungry!  As you point out, the amount of room on a 26er is the prime reason for my search.  I often cook for a crowd.  With my performer and a 26, I can feed an army.

Winz I have a NIB 26er but won't break it out until spring here in Chicago. I had 2 previous ones and either sold or traded them. I stumbled upon one at target that was a return and ended up getting this one for around $180 with tax. I'm sure it will get used often.
Not everyone deserves to know the real you. Let them criticize who they think you are.

My 26.75 collection
The black was a $30 auction buy, the "old gray" was listed on CL as 22.5. Keep your eyes open, one will show up! Good luck

Not a great photo by any means, but...  This 26'er was 9 days old when it was posted to CL as the owner wanted to downsize to a 22.5 OTG.  So, I swapped him a really clean OTG (which I added a lid thermo to) with a heavy duty cover plus 80 bucks.  We both walked away very happy, but clearly I got the better end of this deal.  Got it home, a quick bath, and introduced him to the girls.  :)

I've always had gas...  And now a bunch of kettles because of this place.  Thanks!

Humble nothing....that's a beauty.

Heres a couple more.....


I used to think the MT was Webers best creation but you cant beat the versatility and extra cooking space of the 26.

I set a goal to do so before the end of 2013 but sadly, that has come and gone.   :(  I may get the urge if it ever warms up in these parts.

Craig - spectacular!  Very cool that your 22 and 26 match. 

When Jeff sells me his blue 26  ;), it is going to match my SS blue perfectly!

Thanks, Winz. I love the browns. I was ecstatic to land a Chief. When Jeff sells me his red 26...... I'll have the red trifecta.... Then I woke up.   ;)
