    That is pretty good performance for a grill in that price range.

    IMHO, if you are just going to grill without any plans of indirect cooking that 27" Weber Kettle is sweet. Of course with the larger size you could do some indirect grilling. My brother has one and it has a thermometer in the lid and a holder for the lid. Weber even includes a couple of charcoal baskets and it has the double hinged cooking grate. I like the fact that you have enough room on it for safe zones or multiple levels of heat. About 300 bucks and you are cooking about 10 minutes after you open the box and assemble it. You can do alot of things on a Weber.

    I have done plenty of indirect grilling with a standard Weber, but you are right, the 26 1/2" is nicer. Don't like the 36" Ranch Kettle. The lid is too cumbersome.

    'Course, you are talking about a $300 grill.

    Pick one up for me please. I'll get it from you next time we get together. I don;t really need one, but for that price, I'm in.

    I have been all over the Hasty-Bake sight and watching their videos and man is that a sweet rig!! It appears to be the perfect grill/smoker combo and if you get the powder coated models very reasonably priced!!

    this is what i got, and i love it...



    has plenty of room, works great, and is the perfect size for me...



    it's a little overloaded in that last pic, but this is the grill that got me started with smoking. i took a piece of scrap 16 gauge, bent it into a large piece of C-Channel, and it works great for indirect heat cooking. i just place the charcoal below the heat plate and the food directly above. the intake/exhaust works great and is nice and tight. this spring, i need to replace the wood shelves with some expanded metal and replace the handle with a nicer barrel handle, but other than that, it is great, right out of the box.

    the charcoal "shelf"/tray has 3 levels that it can sit on and is the perfect size... it takes only one charcoal chimney and the coals are evenly spread across.

    anyway, for $100, it's got more room than a weber, comes with wheels on it, and is sturdy as hell.

    Later,
    Andy

    P.S. it's a Charbroil Santa Fe. i have seen other knock-offs around, but i haven't paid much attention to them. The charbroil was relatively cheap and has held up for over 2 years with no rust at all. it needs a good cleaning, but so far, so good.

    That Santa Fe is a nice looking pit. Is that a door on the front so you can add charcoal for long cooks??
