    Panhead John yeah using the SnS at ~225F the Weber lid's temp dial is about ~75 degrees hotter than the indirect cooking zone's actual grate temp. Once you learn that, you can remember it and make the adjustment in your head and cook at where it says it's 300, but best to have it closer for sure.

    I am a fan of SNS. You really cannot go wrong either way, but the support and quality from SNS is top shelf.

    I've already got the PBC, and a 5 burner gasser. So this is really going to be for smaller smokes, or charcoal grilling.
    Much easier to do PoorTex wings too.

    It sounds like the SnS has some additional features that are actually useful. I think that's what I'm going to go with....

    Actually, If I didn't have my Weber kettles I'd probably go with the SnS. Dave is one of us and has always been a straight shooter.

    I just like showing off my blue baby.

    Oh yeah Huskee I forgot about the thermometer placement. That’s a big deal because it’s on the vent side, away from the coals in a 2 zone cook, as you mentioned. And it’s also a lot closer to the cooking grate, makes for more accurate temps. One review I read on the SNS, the temp. on the lid was only about 10-15 degrees different than his grate probe read. The Weber thermometer is pretty much useless, cause it’s always over my coals in the back.

    I should add, I do not even own a SnS add on, So, I am not really sure the value of that coming with a grill. I never have problems running a smooth temp on a 22. The defuser plate, that makes your entire surface like the 24 summit charcoal. Adds real estate for smoking on a 22. More then I imagine a SnS would provide.

    I wouldn't buy another Weber 22 myself if mine died, I personally would go for the SnS kettle. Not because the Weber isn't any good, it's perfectly fine, but the SnS kettle improves the kettle so much with the table, the thermometer positioned on the vent side, and the probe wire port. The 26" Weber kettle though, that's a beast and I encourage you to consider it.

    Three legs will be steady on uneven ground, but four legs may not.

    The whole reason you’re getting it is for the cooks I’m assuming. Blue doesn’t cook any better than charcoal grey the SNS has. As others have mentioned the SNS has the better cooking grate, the fan and grate ports, comes with a shelf. On that subject, the SNS shelf is a fold down, the side shelf I bought for my Weber kettle is not. I have to remove it and put it somewhere after all my cooks, to get it out of the way. The lid rack is on the left on the SNS vs. in the back of the Weber, easier access IMO. Also the SNS has 4 legs, vs. Weber’s 3. I’d go with the SNS, hands down.

    BFlynn that settles it. SNS. I don't want you getting insulted like that

    Only downside to the blue, is that people around here might mistake me for a Cowboys fan.

    So you're saying I should get the SnS?

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.
