    I mean really, once it was offered was there really any other choice? Not only does it check all the boxes for what I wanted in a grill, but it also got me the opportunity to meet the legend himself. How does one pass that up?
    A big thank you too everyone that took the time to vote and share your opinions.

    I went into this thinking the Weber Performer was going to be the run away winner.

    The fact that the SnS kettle actually got the most support from people like you, who know a thing or two about grills, speaks volumes about the quality and reputation of SnS.
    In fact I'll be putting in my order tonight for a SnS to marry with the new beauty on the block. So if Huskee you happen to know anybody over at SnS that could maybe slide my order to the top of the pile, I wouldn't complain. 😉

    Thanks again everyone! But as it turned out FireMan has no qualms about rigging an election to swing his way.

    I voted Weber too. I have one, this is my second Weber grill the first on lasted about 20+ years, I tried to save it, but it was beyond repair. They last forever, I use it about every other day.

    willxfmr the grill you can get if you are in a hurry might be a factor. I see a ton of "Out of stock" on Weber stuff lately, on their website as well as reseller websites. If you want it this summer, the SNS Deluxe may be the way to go.

  • willxfmr

    It certainly wouldn't take much to up sell me to the Deluxe.

    It seem like a good idea right up until Panhead John thought it was a good idea. Now? I'm not sure, but something seems off.

    Sorry. I already have a fire pit, and a garbage can. I won't be combining the two.

    I voted for the SNS because you listed the Performer against it, otherwise I suggest picking a cool color, buying a Master Touch, and adding the SnS insert to it. The Weber in a color other than black will hold wild value if you ever decide to sell it. (it's like having a Wrangler)

    P.S.: forget the LSG. Get a Weber Summit Kamado and grill year 'round, down to -30F... Spend the savings on other stuff.

    What I would vote for if I could would be the Weber Performer Deluxe if it was on the list. If you expect to do lots of hot and fast, that propane ignition is more of a time saver and convenience than you would think. I really REALLY love my SNS Deluxe Kamado, but do think that the table space, charcoal storage AND charcoal ignition on the Performer Deluxe are a game changer.

    RonB the rotisserie for the Weber won't fit the SNS kettle, but that is the only limitation I know of.

    If you want hot and fast, why not the chimney and the $20 toy PJ just posted. Just an idea.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
