Newbie from SW MO
« on: August 26, 2018, 03:36:25 AM »
Good Morning!  New Weber owner here.  After many years of being a propane lover, only finding that no matter the $$ spent on a grill, they all eventually fail, I changed to the simplicity of charcoal grilling, only to find that no matter the $$ spent on a grill, they eventually fail.  My latest was a simple Kingsford with one side table, cast iron grates and an adjustable height coal tray.  The coal tray burnt thru within a year.  I solved that by adding a scavenged grate from some long lost grill.  Then the front left leg rusted off at the plastic shoe, that is purposely designed to hold water, expediting the rust.  I stepped back and realized the simplicity of a Weber may be the right way to go.  Designed to shed water, with a robust baked-on finish, and the ability to maximize efficiency by design, I took the plunge.  Looking forward to learning everything I can here.

Hello,

I also am a new Weber owner, bought my first 22" one about three weeks ago. I've spent hours  looking in this group leaning things and still haven't introduced myself but I'm going to this morming.
Yesterday morning I picked up another brand new 22" Weber kettle of letgo for $25 so now I have two.
I'm totally hooked on this, like I said I've spent hours on just this forum looking and learning but I've spent 10 times that amount looking on the internet and YouTube ha.
Seems like there a lot of great people here I need to get more involved in this group.
