    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

    Roast done and ready to take into the house to rest for a few minutes before slicing

    Here's the roast after slicing

    Money shot after applying my homemade au jus. Made a fresh salad and some Cajun taters

    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!!

  5. 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.

    Beast is a good word! Still no buyers remorse here, so that's good!

    would probably work. plenty of room for it.moving the lid on and off to add splits would be a pain though :emoji_laughing:

    Emphatically!

    Nice pick up! that's on my list as well! will have to catch up soon so we can hash out the gathering details. Glad all is well!

    I remember seeing shows on PBS way back with Raichlen using splits all the time.

    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 pics :emoji_wink:

    Big plans for the Weber Ranch...

    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...

    Gonna go with a high temp ceramic coating! Probably in Titanium.

    upload_2019-6-12_14-58-3.png


    random pic from google but options are Black, Silver, Titanium, and Gold. I think Titanium would look great on it from that list!

    Would loooove Red but unfortunately not an option. Looked into High Temp powder coat but a lot of shops around here don't carry it and I guess it is super expensive. and only good for 1200°F wheres the Ceramic coating is up to 2000°F. Both those temps are plenty but it will be used for high temp grilling too, so I figure go big!

    Careful 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.
    How bad are the chips anyway?

    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.

    Again, not necessarily needed, but just jumping ahead on it.
