    End caps for wheels on new OTG

    Hey W. The ones you need are 3/8 Axel Nuts. Home Depot and Lowes both sell them in the fastener section. Neither seem to sell black plastic ones like Weber uses - but they usually have red, white, and metal ones. Home depot's metal axel nuts are shaped like little top hats _|--|_ while lowes...

    a third of the price and a tenth of the quality. victorinix knives are rock solid and affordable. the 12" slicer is the go-to knife for a LOT of bbq teams AND a lot of professional chefs. A bread knife will work, but it won't be a pretty cut.

    Pork Butt Preparation - Trim Off Fat Layer Prior to Smoke?

    i think your tenderness was a factor of not cooking it enough vs trimming too much. i've done several comparisons of trimming off the huge fat cap - i couldn't tell the difference in the meat. However I COULD tell the difference on the grates and in the water pan.

    Older 26.75 question

    if the grill has the one-touch system, yes you can. I don't know if its the same size as the 22 or not though. It may or may not require some simple modification to the leg sockets. if the grill has the daisy wheel vents, you can't upgrade.

    weber rotisserie ring and Cajun Bandit

    indirect, yes, but that smoke is from an open flame. Which means you're not getting that nice thin blue smoke - your chunks are on fire.

    Rare Weber Kettle. Pre-1960?

    How many wood dale's have you seen? All 4 of the ones i've seen had the typical vent placement. The older 22's with the vent to the side (that i've seen) didn't have wood dale or paletine on the vent, they simply had 'chicago'
