Hello from Wisconsin
« on: January 25, 2021, 11:31:10 AM »
Hi All,

Greetings from the tundra!

After having and using a Skyline 1200 for 20+ years (used 2x a week and still like new), I needed a challenge.  My new 26" Kettle is only 9 days old and has made thick cut pork chops, racks of ribs, brats and a 12 hour smoked pork shoulder (yesterday).  Before now, I had only cooked with coals when camping/hunting and love the challenge. 

Cooking with coals is a lot like being the engineer of a steam locomotive.  There is a certain amount of planning required, as well as keeping up with the vent settings to keep the internal temps stable and predictable.  I grill/smoke outside no matter what the weather and this Kettle is amazing at holding what you set.  Looking forward to some mods and getting my techniques all dialed in.

Cheers,
wingnutt

Welcome from Doraville, Ga. choosing a 26er was a grate move !!
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Thank you!  I was dead set on the 22, but with a stainless grate and coal bins standard, not to mention cooking for 6-12 people often, it was a no-brainer.
