My Performer and UDS gets the job done also but I have to admit like J have serious gear lust over this thing. What does a large Big Green Egg cost with the risk of ever moving it and shattering into pieces not an issue with the Summit.Those are very nice grills, but I can't swing it. I need to up my facebook search range. Usually some DFW stuff will pop up on my listings. Sometimes I don't want to see it. My 22.5 OTS gets the job done, though.
I just really like the versatility of the Weber kettle with all the various accessories you can get. Slow'n'sear, vortex, rotisserie, pizza ring, Wok .... I have used them all and I doubt you have all these options on a PK.PK's are really trendy because of steak competitions. The charcoal grate is closer to the grill so I guess searing is easy and it's very simple to 2-zone. I think they are pretty cool. I wouldn't mind a vintage one, but a Weber kettle with a slow n sear can get the charcoal even closer to the meat and I only really ever cook 2 a time and you still aren't getting anywhere close to the cost of a PK.
Dave,PK's are out of my budget. I will have to be happy with my CharQ.
Size for size, is there something a PK can do, that the CharQ can't?
