    Weber 22.5" One Touch Gold - 2014 Model

    Since I was curious with Huskee's post regarding measurements and his 2015 model, I decided to dig mine out from under the deck. Here is a comparison with changes to last years model.

    Classic Black

      Image sizes are all over the place.

      I notice a few differences between kettles .. nothing major though. Seems like the older model grate is recessed more to 2 1/4" instead of 2". The outside is actually 22 5/8 and inside is 22". Grate though is the same. Huskee didn't measure the lower grate to upper grate. The legs don't have the push lock deally like the new model.

      Performance I would expect to be the same however.

              I just thought I'd add a couple measurements. The new model seems to have bottom vent positions a little different than the 2014 model. Keep in mind though that the older model has round holes, and the 2015 model has slotted holes.

              Distance between holes = 7/8"

              I also thought I'd include the diameter of the bottom opening for the ash tray which is about 10"

              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.
