She’s very good like that. Looks out for me. Beer, bar b que related, beer and general man stuff. I’m not good at reciprocating at times, but will plant flowers and the like when asked.Answer:Does a one legged duck swim in circles . . is a frogs ass watertight?
It's a monster! Looked it up on the internet and is looks like Weber Ranch Kettle is a 37" beast. Nice score.
You have some splits you can fire it with?

Howdy again all!! Like Zach, I too have been absolutely swamped. Finally taking a minute to chime in and say HI.
Zach, great score on the grill. That thing looks like you could cook half a cow on it. My BGE is pretty big but pales by comparison to that one.
Also like Zach, I scored a new toy. Gt it two weeks ago and absolutely love it!! Done some serious mods to it and it's nothing short of amazing. It's a 36" Santa Maria grill from Sunterra Outdoor Products. I added a massive log lighter system to it so I could get it lit and coals going in a hurry. Also did some really interesting fabrication to install a rotisserie I had in the garage from a grill I bought over 20 years ago.
Here's the grill all put together and nestled on the patio

Did an eye round roast on the rotisserie last weekend. Grill fired up with mesquite and getting ready to roll with the meat

I love this grill!! Got all sorts of things in mind to cook on it...and of course I'll take lots of pics :-)
All that aside, we are getting a few folks involved in the conversation. Is there any interest in putting together a gathering? I have the space, the toys, and a wife that loves entertaining as much as I do....as well as having a pool :-)
Gotta run. The boys are waiting at my little pub for a cold adult libation. Looking forward to getting some feedback on a gathering. I think it'd be a blast!!

I remember seeing shows on PBS way back with Raichlen using splits all the time.would probably work. plenty of room for it.moving the lid on and off to add splits would be a pain though
Might have to give it a shot sometime and see. Plus I like taking photos so getting in there often would be an excuse for picsI remember seeing shows on PBS way back with Raichlen using splits all the time.
Careful with the blasting method!gonna fix all the chipping and rust marks. Got to get it back to as close as round as I can then it will get dropped off for a good blasting and new coating...
I'll have to ask about their methods. That would suuuckCareful with the blasting method!
It can heat/warp/distort it!
Absolutely,might want to find a kettle on CL,or someplace, to have them do first so you can check it out.That would suuuck
Not the worst at all. Some spider webbing all over and chips and rust all around the rim of lid and bowl like in pic.Absolutely,might want to find a kettle on CL,or someplace, to have them do first so you can check it out.
How bad are the chips anyway?
