Chicago meet up 2017 Master Thread

This year marks the 5th year that we have been operational for the WKC.

This also marks the 5th time that the WKC has organized a meetup in Chicago, with Chicago being the birthplace of the Weber grill it is the perfect spot for these meetups.

While there are other great meetups throughout the country (and abroad) this is the grand daddy of them all.

In past meetups we have had members come in from all around the North American continent to attend.

On Saturday, July 8th the WKC will be hosting another historic event with kettles of all kinds, from the rare and pristine to the used and abused that will never die.

The event will be hosted again by Brian aka @zavod44 in Elgin, Illinois.

Prizes include weber covers, gourmet cooking grates, 6405 shish kabob set and other items.

I have a special request for this year, there is always an abundance of meat on these grills and meat is great, but special kudos to those who can cook appetizers and side dishes.  You are more than welcome to cook meat if that is your specialty but sides and aps would be a huge bonus.

Here is the link to the good times that were had at previous Chicago meetups.

It's well worth the drive. Last year was a blast! I'm looking forward to it. Thanks again to Brian O' Neal (Zavod44) for hosting again this year.

Yes, especially given the fact that you told her and didn't ask.

My wife went on the interwebs and found something about 20 miles south of Elgin, we did that because we are going to an event on Friday night that is about 50 miles south of Elgin.

It all depends on where you want to be and where you are coming in from.

That said country inn suites is nice and has decent breakfast

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill
