Jealous I want a 26, but cannot justify the price.
I got my 22 free off the curb. A little clean up, new charcoal grate and cooking grate as good to go.
I had to get Weber fuel grate, but cook grate was under $10 for Menards generic.
Did score the tool hook handle for $1 at Lowes

Thank you. Your buddy can’t go wrong with the Weber 26. It’s size is really impressive.

I think he’ll be going with the 22. He's been living the condo lifestyle for the last 15 years so it’s his first venture into charcoal anything. He wants something that is versatile and can be used to both grill and smoke, but is also budget friendly in case he doesn't quite catch the bug like most of us here. His own research lead him to the Weber Kettle, and it is hard to do anything but agree with his rationale.

Great score, I love my 22 Master Touch, but ever once in a while I do a cook where I think I could really use a 26. Last night was one of them. I keep an eye out on marketplace and offer up around me and I have only seen a half dozen 26 come up over the last two years and never under $275. I can't wait to see the 22 in restore!

Nice score Johnny!
I would love to have a 26, that’s a big jump from a 22. I wish they would make a 26” WSM.

Nice! I bought a new cooking grate but already had the charcoal grate. I’ve got to get a temp gage.

I think he’s made a great choice!

They are really hard to fine at a good price. Working on the 22” now. She’ll be ready soon.
Nice score Johnny!

A 26” WSM would be off-da-charts!
