    For any getting their hands on the 2015 model of 22" Weber Kettle, I thought I would show some detailed pics of the vent handle/vent settings. Different sized kettles may vary on these settings.

    Also some other measurements just because...

    Top & Bottom vent settings are in first post at top of this thread ^^

    Grates:
    Still 22.5" outer diameter, 22" inner diameter. The main cooking grate is 21.5", with a little back & forth play.

    Smart use of the holes, Huskee. I would have saved disfiguring my weber with a sharpie if I'd thought of that!

    Based on the descriptions on Weber's site of the total cooking area (363 in) and the replacement parts/accessories, I'm pretty sure they just dropped the "1/2" to sound cleaner. They did it on the 18 also, and the WSMs. Heck, some number cruncher probably told them they could save X millions of dollars a year in ink costs by not have to print the .5, .75 or 1/2 on advertising, packaging and manuals.

    Is the grate smaller than the older gold version?

    As our friend Strat50 woud say: "Easy peasy lemon squeezy" - the charcoal grate on a 22.5" is 19.5", plenty of room for a few "sticks"

    Interesting - I'll have to see how that matches up to my markings on my Performer or OTG.

    Oh, and starting to notice the trend here. Nice gifts

    Nice review Huskee. It looks to me like vent settings 2 to 2.5 are where all the real action should be happening.
