Love my 22” and for my son’s Birthday got him an 18”… Cause he wanted to be a “grilling guy”… We have some fun grilling together…
So we have a vortex
for each, as said “game changer” big time! Of any accessory, that is number one!!!! Best wings and chicken fried steak! One word of caution, if you do the vortex
… get a good glove… not thinking and a few beers into my first cook… I damned near branded a Weber emblem into my palm… that handle gets HOT!!!
One day I’d like a 26”… But for now, with the 22 and 18 we have plenty of room!
Some may say that’s not an economic way to use charcoal… I will tell them, if you see the look on my sons face after a cook… That he done… Priceless! He is so proud! And I’m proud of him… It’s a bonding experience too!
BTW, both are just original kettles with ash catch underneath the grill! So during a cook, if need be you can just lightly turn side to side the temp sweeps underneath to clear out any ash build up!
