    I don't use it too often. Maybe once a month??? When I smoke bacon I use it since it will hold 30 pounds (three full bellies). If I need to cook for a group I will fire it up too. I did 2 briskets a couple weeks back. Last summer I did 4 pork butts and 6 chickens another time. Honestly, it is pretty much just a novelty but it is a pretty cool novelty. Kind of like a suburbanites who gets an F-350 with a 6 inch lift. No real reason he needs something that big but it is pretty cool to have around

    I think that is the right decision. Get a rib rack or hover grill to add more capacity to the kettle.... I do that routinely, and rotate things top to bottom half way through the cook.

    Personally I love the versatility of a kettle. I have a bunch of 22s, a 26, and a Ranch. I love that I can cook low and slow, hot and fast, sear steaks, slap a cast iron pan on there and cook stuff in there, etc. Hard to get the same versatility and ease of use with anything else.

    But the real answer is keep the 26 and get the drum too.
    How often do you use your Ranch, and what types of cooks do you tend to do on it? Curious

    Good decision ... and you’re neither the odd man out nor crazy.

    Sifting through the replies in this thread, I am starting to think that holding onto the 26.75 kettle and not adding a Hunsaker (right now) is the better choice as the kettle truly is the Swiss Army knife of charcoal grills. To give up that for additional capacity... hmmmm, not 100% convinced at this point that it’s the better choice.

    The feedback has been much appreciated

    I’ll be the first to admit it... I am the odd man out in the sense that I hate having a backyard full of cookers. I much prefer to have ONLY what I need and will use on a very regular basis. Crazy, eh? ;-)

    I traded a 26” kettle for a PBC for volume reasons but of course I still have a 22” and the Pk so...

    Build a UDS, it won't break the bank and it's a fun project. I did this and I love it for taking to fish camp, deer camp, and when I need some extra capacity. Although 6 pork buts create a hell of a grease fire when you open to wrap, just say'n.
