I think that Weber should rethink a thing about this

it has all the features you love about a 22 inch Masters touch except... The grill baskets. maybe they just have not designed baskets for the 26 incher.

Instead it comes with some useless steel wire bent thingies that are useless.

First cook was 2 spatchcock chickens which came out great. And I was using lump charcoal and had never tried temperature control on a 26 inch with lump.

Anyway, I think it is a hit and I absolutely love this smoke color. might do pork ribs this weekend but first I need to design a basket for this thing.

Yep.  Definitely a cost cutting measure to provide cheap 1970s rails.  I would not bank coals on a beautiful grill like that.   The crazing would only be a matter of time.

All Master-Touch are switching to include Char-Rails instead of Char-Baskets. Char-Baskets will still be available as a separate accessory. #IworkforWeber

Boo.  Bad move for Weber.   This is a cost cutting move that will lead to warranty claims when the enamel gets damaged on their premium priced colored models.

Not if the enamel lasts 10 years.  Im sure that was weighed into the decision making.

A snake and "P" shaped vents play well together.

They tasted pretty good too.
1 slab was a little overcooked, but rarely do all of them cook the same.

Picked up a set of baskets and am using them right now
I have the basket snake mod one for the 22 incher but the 26 will not take that
Saw the Bro in Sear, I do not know if that is my way of doing that
The Slow and Sear is just way to expensive for my taste, but now with the new improvements it looks better

I think I am going make one of my snake baskets out of 3 baskets.

If we were meant to grill with gas then the garden of Eden would have had a pipeline

I am a big fan of the snake, best cooker I ever had was a Happy Cooker using the snake. There is just something about that inside ash catcher that controls the heat so good.
Years ago I made a thread of how I joined a few baskets for a 22 inch basket that worked like a snake. I think I will do that for the 26 incher and post up a few picture
