    Default Where we all started.

    I Really like it here at TQJ.There is a lot of great folks with lot of BBQ savvy, however there is something missing. A legend, an icon, and probably the single most important part of the BBQ culture since man first discovered that fire and meat go together.A piece of history that most of us take for granted and where 90% of us made our bones. The "Weber 22.5" kettle" Many a beer has been drank and many a steak properly kissed by flame in front of this alter. I LOVE my Weber. If I could have but one piece in the stable it would be the Weber. Long smokes or burgers and bratts it handles it all.Eggs and Drums have there own place lets give a little place for the king. Show your support heres mine.

    Ya know, I've never actually had a true Weber. I currently have (and hardly use) a Uni-Flame knock off which is needing a leg repaired now. Maybe somewhere down the road I'll find a deal or just break down and just get a true Weber.

    But yes I agree, we all have started with the grill and progressed deeply into the addiction of BBQ.

    This is amazing, I was just going to start a Weber thread. I tried to do a pork tenderloin on my new drum and, you know what, drum cant do it right...along with anything else needing a sear and a rare inside. Don't get me wrong, I love my drum, but I sort of feel like that SC Gov. Mark Sanford...my Weber is like my wife, that I know so well and am trying to fall back in love with, but I have my drum, who is my little hottie Latino S. American "soul mate". The point is cookers are like women...you shouldn't have to have just one

    The Weber kettle.......what a good pal it's been over the years (I've had three since I started grillin' and chillin' as a sophomore in college - '91).

    How many steaks, chickens and pork loins have I cooked on the Weber? Enough to keep me "big boned", ha! Only recently did I figure out that lump is the way to go.....

    Dare I say it, but my previous One Touch did get contaminated with some Match Light. Thank god that was in the '90s and I've learned my lesson.

    BTW, I finished my drum tonight, gonna start the seasoning burn in the AM, and hopefully do a test run tomorrow afternoon with some fattys and some wings.

    Butts and ribs on Saturday!

    I, nor my parents, have ever had one. I thought about getting one this fall, cheaper(?), seasoning it, use it a couple times to get a "know how" and then give it to my parents and teach them how to use it. They were talk'n about getting one, but I doubt they will.

    The "bbq pit boys" at bbqweb sure like theirs.

    I don't have, or have I ever owned a large Weber Kettle...I do have the Smokey Joe for smaller cooks....Streaks and whatnot. I'd like to get a larger kettle someday, but I'm set for now.

    Never owned a Weber. I do have an antique Buddy L cast aluminum grill that is similar, had it since the early 70's. It still cooks just fine, the cast aluminum is the ticket.
    Sorta lost it's looks over the years. And it is avacado green.

    I have owned a few Webers and at one time, I would've said the same in regard to having but one piece of outdoor cooking equipment, but then I found Hasty Bake.

    I currently have 2 Smoky Joe Platinums (18"), and a 22 1/2" WSM, but I never use them.

    I use the Hasty Bake more often than anything, then the drum for quick smokes, and the Backwoods or Lucille for real smokes.

    Actually, the Backwoods is so handy that I only fire up Lucille when I have more to cook than the Backwoods can handle.

    While the Kettle is definitely an icon in outdoor cookery, there are also several of us still around that cut their eye teeth well before the Weber became popular.
