Congrats... My 22.5 came last Tuesday... I went with AimToFind.com... 364 no shipping or tax... I set it up the night it came also... I hope to fire it up Saturday for its first Run... It is in my living room now LOL... i am contemplating leaving it there as a piece of art LOL... the family doesn't see it that way though... they claim to feel like they are in "Lost in Space" i keep getting "Danger Will Robinson" when i walk into the room LOL!!! but it will be heading out back this weekend for good when i hopefully fire it up!
Pictures dont do this thing justice... Am I right??? I mean it is so much bigger and nicer looking in person...
LOL!!! there is def a resemblance to R2D2... classic!I was actually considering painting mine to look like R2-D2!
And you're right, all this time, I'd thought they were about hip height, but I could take the racks out and hide in it while playing hide 'n' seek with my nephews.
Try spinning the lid around until it seems to fit better, and for the "belly hatch", gently bend it to fit the profile of the drum. It will not seal perfectly & Weber will tell you that it's not designed to seal tight. It will still smoke like a bandit.the thing is freakin' huge and stout!
I wish the lid and belly hatch were better sealed, they seem to let alot out, my only complaints.
I did end up screening in the charcoal rack with 1/4" steel mesh to keep the smaller bits of charcoal from sneaking out through the bars in the grate.
