    it was supposed to be the 18,5 kettle but the sign was on this kettle and they honored the price.
  2. Congrats, it will produce great food for years to come.  Heck of a great deal, enjoy.

    Do you need the Cajun expansion ring for the rotisserie and ribulator? I've been planning on getting vortex, but I'm thinking that the rotisserie and ribulator would be cool to have. What other benefits to expansion ring?

    Thanks B-one!

    Yes you need to buy it all.the only other benefit I could think of you could most likely rig another rack in there maybe stacked but never really looked into it as I bought it only thinking of rotisserie and Ribolator. It's a no brainier triple play of fun but if on a budget get the Ribolator last it would be very handy for apps or similar items for a party!

    Here are some pictures of my new Fire Butler.

    This is the replacement for the charcoal grate.

    The fire basket without searing grate, this would be the set up for low and slow.

    With the searing plate in place, this puts the charcoal super close to the grate for a great sear!

    The Lid/Griddle with this in place you can cook many different ways both low and slow and high heat griddle cooking.

    With the main grate in place. I hope to post a cook with the Fire Butler this weekend.

    Thanks for looking!

    40 bucks for the ash catcher kit? I paid 27 for mine. I am most likely getting the Santa Maria add-on by Gabby's Grills.

    Yeah that price was for shipping and tax plus the price of 27.99! And I also was looking at the Santa Maria add-on.

    Never had any of the fancy accessories, but I still have the one Dad gave me in '95. It's not so pretty any more, what with the 1by 2s replacing the disintegrated handles and the gaffer's tape holding the legs on, but it still cooks like a new one. It's hard to beat a Weber Kettle....

    You know what......I am not into rotisserie. I have just never cared for it. I do not think it gives any better taste or tenderness. I will probably order it as a basic unit.

    Make sure you get the grate that folds up at the sides so you can add briquets or wood on indirect cooking!
