I reckon y'all get the gist of this post, a 22" Weber will do most anything. I sold my offset a few months back, got a 26" Weber I've used once. The best tool in the box doesn't have to be the prettiest or the most expensive, just the one that gets the job done right every time. Thanks for lookin' in and stay safe out there, the stuff ain't over and may never will be. RAY

Amazing looking plates. I've about given up on getting a offset. Might just get another kettle. as youve showed, they are just so darn versatile.

Lots of great cooks there ray. I'm in a grilling/smoking rut. Life is crazy. I need to get my stuff together and fire something up.

Man Ray that is one smorgasbord of goodness!! Nailed all those cooks. You’ve really given the Weber Kettle a workout. Those bird legs are a heck of a value and can be done up just like wings for sure

Wow! Those QViews were like a Tarantino movie! You never know what’s going to happen next, but you know you’ll love it! Amazing cooks Ray. I still love my Kettles, my favorite meals and memories by far.

Don't be getting in any kind of coma there Doug, we're just smokin' meat, it what we do here! RAY

Thank Jim! I don't miss my SQ36 one bit and was happy to see it go. I got the 26"er just for smokin', haven't had a big enough crowd around to get it broke in right. Thanks for the Like Jim, I appreciate it. RAY


Some outstanding looking meals ya have there Ray! Nice job on all of it! Have always loved your cooks! (And bun recipes) . And still love your jokes! Ryan

Thanks Ryan! I figure to cut back on the cook posts a bit and let all the newbs have a run, let's see what they got. The jokes never stop, tho a major contributor and dear friend went to heaven a couple of weeks back, there's only five of us circulators in my crowd left. Thanks for the Like Ryan, I do appreciate it. RAY


I don't know where to start, Ray, but I'll take a plate of each, thank you...:emoji_grinning:

Thank you Charles! I try to eat a balanced diet tho carb-cutting is definitely in future plans. Not really that big a deal to me, always been a meat and veggies guy. Thanks for the Like Charles, I do appreciate it. RAY


Good grief Ray, thats fabulous. You are eating well, and that’s good to know. Man, that all looks delicious.

Thanks Edge! As we age we don't eat as much, might as well enjoy the best we can! RAY


That's some fine looking meals there RAY ! Everything looks perfect.

Thank you! I'm finally beginning to get the hang of this stuff, tho "perfect" doesn't come around very often. Thank you for the Like, I do appreciate it. RAY

One awesome meal after a other Ray! You’re definitely batting 1.000 on the kettle. I just can’t get over the size of that dino rib! That’s something for Fred Flintstone!
