Here are my questions: Can I go wrong with a Weber Kettle at that price in either size?
In the photo above, there is a pic of the 22" Weber Called a One-Touch Gold that I copied from another page on this site. I think the cylinder protruding below the kettle is where there is some charcoal handling features that make it a One-Touch. Is this same grill made in both 18 and 22 inch models? The pic of the one I sent SIL after has the cylinder.
I will be please regardless of the size as it will be bigger than the SJS that I've been using for years. The larger size will give me more control over heat and cooking and it will let me commit the SJS to a mini-WSM. I'm taking pics and planning a long post on my adaptation of the IMUSA tamale steamer and mods to the SJS. When I'm further along, I'll get the story together and post it.
Thanks for listening. You may now return to your regularly scheduled programs now in progress.
