        I just traveled threw a vortex of redirect! It was radical!

        I've got a fever. . . . and the only prescription is more cowbell!


      I dont recall that metal piece under the top handle on mine. What is it?

        Heat shield, from the look of it.

      Why does it only say 22" and not 22.5"? Did weber change the design?


        It's a heat deflector. This is a new for 2015 model and has a few enhancements.

        1) Handle with shield.
        2) Legs attach with a spring loaded "push pin".
        3) The thermometer and top vent are now on opposite sides of the handle.
        4) The stamped cutouts on the ash catcher are improved. Before, you knew which way you had to turn it to open or close the vents, but what you realized was that 'open' and 'closed' really were closer together than you would have thought. This is more accurately portrayed. The markings are closer together with a "trash" cutout on the far side to show that moving it that far is only necessary to help clean the grill.

        I pulled the above info from a review on Amazon.

          Thanks. Yeah, I marked mine for closed, half, quarter open, etc. its not linear.

          Wish I got a copper one, but mine was on clearance for $99.

          Can't beat that price. That's a SCORE.

        Mav 732 was reading 478 when I took the pic of the dome thermometer.


          Looks good, I think I just saw one somewhere...


            Chicken is on. Man it's cold. Weatherman says 40 but with the wind it feels much colder.


              Neato. I see Southern Flavor. I'm about to attack some pizza with mine.


                You are correct Sir. Southern Flavor and chicken make a GREAT combination.


                  Did you and JB also call each other to discuss the outfits you were going to wear? Both with new copper kettles on the same day. Huskee, where's yours?

                  I removed the thermometer on my Performer and use that hole to drop my probes through.


                    Nice score, love my copper kettle. That vortex will really work it's magic now

                      It's a mystery wrapped in an enigma.


                        Nice - never have seen the copper kettle!

                        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.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                        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.
