    Weber Wood Fire Pit

    I also have one that I have never used. Our local hardware store still had two of them sitting outside until earlier this year until a tornado hit the store and did some extensive damage. The fire pits are no longer there so they must have been damaged and thrown away. Both of them weren't in...

    Added a Performer to my backyard last night

    Nice find. I like that color of blue. I have two Performers, a 1995 Red one that I restored about 10 years ago and a black 2007 model with an upgraded steel table. I hardly ever use either one of them anymore. I also have the SnS that I've only used a few times though it does work well.

    Redhead Performer SS restoration

    I restored a Red SS Performer about 10 years ago. The frame has these little inserts inside the square tubes that the bolts screw into. These are a weak point on the frame and a lot of times the bolt gets rusted into the inserts and they either don't come out or break. Luckily mine did not...

    Brisket Newb - Teach Me Brisket 101

    This is the one I use too and it works great. I also have the Dexter boning knife and it works great as well.

    Can someone school me on the SS performer? What makes it desirable?

    I have a first generation Red SSP and a black 2nd generation Performer. I restored the red one about nine years ago and upgraded the table to the metal one on my 2nd gen. I hardly use either one of them but can't get myself to sell either of them yet.

    Weber Master Touch Kettle Restore

    I still have one of these NIB that I bought at Walmart about 2 years ago on clearance for $99. I didn't need it but couldn't pass up the price. I may use the lid on my 2007 Performer that has a bent handle on it's lid. Nice score by the way.

    Hanging meat in the WSM

    I have one of these racks for my 18 WSM which I've never used. I also have a PBC which I prefer over the WSM. Reading this thread has convinced me that I may need to try out my WSM again which I have not used for about three years. I started having problems getting the temps up so I quit...

    Weber earns two spots in Popular Mechanics 12 Best Grills of 2017

    Very nice. I own two performers and that version of the PK grill that they tested. I also own the PK360 which is a very nice grill as well. Wayne

    PK Grill, anyone else here have one?

    I also bought the new PK 360 back in December. I got one of the limited edition models. It is slightly bigger than the classic version they are selling now. I really like it and it seems to work as good as the older ones.

    looking for new weber

    I have a PK(portable Kitchen) grill and while it is expensive, it is a very nice grill. It's very miserly on fuel. It also works very well at indirect. I use this grill way more than my Weber Performers. Wayne

    Looking forward to the weekend

    I have the smoke thermometer and it works great. Much easier to program than my Maverick 732. Wayne

    First low and slow attempt in a Weber 22" kettle

    They say that the Slow N Sear really helps in cooking low and slow on the Kettle. I have not tried mine out yet so I can't give you any first hand knowledge yet. Wayne

    304 Stainless Steel Charcoal Baskets Heavy Duty Premium

    You might have gotten lucky and got some 304 ones. I still have four new un-opened sets of the Weber ones that I got on clearance at Lowes a couple of years ago for $5 a piece plus a couple of sets outside with the grills that are still serviceable so I'm good for awhile. Wayne

    Thermapen Smoke

    I have always just put the probes through the top vent but I'm not taking the lid off all of the time either. I just received the new Smoke but have not used it yet. It looks like a quality product and is easier to program then my Maverick 732. I just bought the two extra probes for the Smoke...

    Removing One Touch Cleaning System

    Did you soak it down with some type of penetrating/lubrication spray? Is there pressure against the handle that will not allow it to twist or move?
