    Smoked Kielbasa

    First thought: I would love to smoke something like that. I'd have to get Dittmer's to make one that big, you don't see them normally around these parts. Second thought: Is that a kielbasa in your pocket or... Sorry. My bad. Thanks for posting the pic! (y)

    Year of Manufacture

    If you go to the support page on Weber.com there's a "Search by Serial Number" field that includes a drop-down list of all valid two-letter date codes. Here's the list of codes starting with D. I've followed each with the code scheme they fall under. Your DW is the odd man out. Very curious...

    Coronavirus - Covid 19

    Seasonal flu does not grow exponentially and usually does not overwhelm hospitals. It can sometimes stress hospitals during peak flu season...but I've never heard of refrigerated trailers parked out back. :cry:

    Year of Manufacture

    Then you're the PERFECT guy to interrogate the Weber customer service rep. Call, give them your serial number, ask some question about the grill, and then casually ask about the DW code, "I understand these letters are a code for the year my grill was made. What does DW stand for? And what's the...

    Year of Manufacture

    It's probably a new date code scheme. The only way we find out about them is when we stumble upon them like this. Weber does not divulge them to the public. It's taken me a lot of work over the years to figure out the ones we DO know about. So here's the start to unravel a new scheme: 1 2 3...

    Coronavirus - Covid 19

    You've been sniffing too much brake cleaner if you think public officials are closing popular gathering places where Covid-19 can spread just to give you a hard time. Your point is well taken that not everyone lives in a place where recreating outside is safe, but those are the breaks during...

    Will there be any Memorial Day Weekend Charcoal Sales this year?

    This made me laugh out loud. Thanks, I needed that!

    Coronavirus - Covid 19

    No, I'm not taking the bait. I'm not arguing with you on the moral question. I agree with what was said above, I don't know the wisdom of shutting down the economy and hurting people that way vs. letting the virus run its course and potentially killing 2+ million Americans vs. some approach in...

    Coronavirus - Covid 19

    I'm calling you out on your claim that you KNOW more people will die from traffic accidents than Covid-19. You DO NOT know that. Stop saying that.

    Coronavirus - Covid 19

    How do you know how many Americans will die from this pandemic? IIHS reports 36,500 traffic deaths in 2018. https://www.iihs.org/topics/fatality-statistics/detail/state-by-state#fatal-crash-totals The CDC, Dr. Fauci, and President Trump are all on record saying that the estimate of Covid-19...
