My name is Bob and I live in Chattanooga, TN. When my Weber Genesis got stolen and could not quite afford to replace it I went with the 22.5 inch Weber Kettle. This has been my first real try at charcoal. I have loved it, although I still am not quite io my gas skills yet. One possibility that I am truly excited about is doing some smoking on it. I feel in love with barbecue in coastal SC and believe that vinegar based is the best, there is none of that in Chattanooga so I want to make my own. Tomorrow I start my journey by smoking my first rack of Baby Back ribs. If things go well I Hope to actually get a smoker.
