    I pretty much eyeball it when using my 26. I figure I use one full chimney when using my 22 for a direct cook, so when using the 26 for a direct cook I up the amount to roughly a chimney and a half. When I first got my 26, I found Weber's charcoal recommendations helpful in getting me used to using the grill correctly both with direct and indirect cooking.

    Meh. I haven't done any scientific experiments exactly, but it seems to me that I use the same amt of charcoal in my 26'er as I'd use to cook the same quantity of food in my 22. I mean, if I have 2 ribeyes, I'll light up enough charcoal to make a single layer just slightly larger than the grill space the ribeyes will take up. At that point, it doesn't matter whether I dump the coals into a 22 or the 26'er. Hell, I'll use the same amount and cook them on one of my Ranch Kettles every now and then. Now, if I try to cook 10 ribeyes on my 26er, or 20 on a Ranch, then yeah, those would take more charcoal, but that's to be expected.

    You should go for it. Then I'll know where to get a used 26 when you move up to the ranch.

    WHo says that he'd get rid of the 26'er ? It's really nice to have them both.

    Sam,
    With that rig, I would be forced to go get one of the whole “Halal” lambs from Costco and throw a helluva party!
    Might have to do it anyway!

    Love the shots and set up Sam. I remember as a kid growing up, people would bring similar hand made grills to the city park and put on large bbq feeds. Well, probably not with that rotisserie, just self made grates. Beer, soda and great bbq. Those were good times.
