Rejoining Club Kettle
« on: August 28, 2021, 01:36:01 PM »
Howdy guys and gals, I have a Smokey Joe with a wooden handle that I got in the 90ís, been dragging it all over the world for the Air Force. Itís looking pretty rough and I moved into offsets for several years, moved into kamados and loving it, but decided to RV full time and they arenít really kamado friendly. I really enjoyed my Smokey Joe, but honestly it was just too small, even for two people with doing smokes and indirect (IMO). So looked at the Jumbo Joe but at one point had an Acorn and always felt constricted and itís the same size. I had a 22Ē Weber a long time ago and that seemed like the ticket. The more I looked, and with the SNS it looked like it was a good size. Problem: Fitting it in the RV. Those legs are awful long. I looked around and now see that Weber is doing colors and I found the deep ocean blue which I LOVE. Except they are sold out EVERYWHERE! I wanted to grab a Master-Touch but nothing available. Then I found a Loweís Special Edition Original Premium - has the heavy duty stainless grate with the removable ring, and the unexpected bonus of the smoking cutouts in the intake vents! SCORE! I gave up on those and didnít realize it had it until I unpacked the box. The description was weird on the site, it said it had the ring grate but nothing about the intake vents. So I basically got a Shorty Master touch and no lid holder, which Iím mulling on drilling a couple of holes over. The height I didnít want anyway as it fits in the RV better as is. Glad to be back, and Iím over the moon about this grill. I couldnít bring myself to go to the dark side. If I want to cook over gas Iíll stay inside. Oh yeah, if you didnít know, itís really:

AIR FORCE BLUE

Aloha!

Welcome from Missouri! That grill sounds interesting, got pictures?
Happiness is found under the lid of a charcoal grill.

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

Seems I'm having trouble uploading pictures. Don't know if it's because I have no privileges as a newbie here or my internet connection. I will try again after I move. Trust me, this thing is BEAUTIFUL.
