    It is amazing how our eyes and minds work. Was wondering how this works: was this relocated to either of the poles from the equator?

    I’ve been contemplating buying the water pan cover for the 22.5 from Cajun B. Wondering it it could be made into a heat deflector....

    I think you could do that but I believe it only comes with 2 half circle grates. If they included 4 you could have 2 complete levels although access would be tricky.

    I really like the design. Not featured in the photos you posted (thank you), but I assume you can have a full-size grate at the "bottom" position (above the heat deflector), and also place half a grate in the top position? What I'm after is getting more grate space. So the full grate, plus a 'half-moon' on top.

    I bought a raised grate from SnS and it fits my Performer perfectly even with a pork butt on it. When I do a pork butt I like to put some smoked sausage directly beneath the butt to get some drippings, makes for a great appetizer waiting for the butt to finish.

    jfmorris, nor have I. This video is the first time I saw one. https://youtu.be/fqQdJfZp5ws

    I hope they offer the diffuser separately at some point.

    au4stree that is it. I've never seen one in a store, didn't know it was an option here even. Must be new for 2021, as a kettle with a hinged lid would have caught my eye.

    All you really need is a Weber Kettle (and I would argue a chimney as well) in whatever size fits your company. The Slow 'n Sear isn't necessary, heat deflectors aren't necessary, risers aren't necessary, fans aren't necessary, none of that stuff is. But a lot of that stuff is helpful and fun as well. That's why I have so many cookers and why love new accessories.

    Is this the model you’re referencing? It does have a diffuser, albeit SS, it might accommodate a stone version.

    I've wondered the same thing. My guess is they will either offer it stateside in the future or they want us to decide between the Kettle and the kamado.

    Attjack I gotta wonder why Weber doesn't sell a kettle with that diffuser and charcoal ring here in the US? I saw it on their European kettles last year, and the link you gave is for their New Zealand page. While I don't need it, due to having the SNS, it seems it would be a nice option to have for folks in the US, and not just the rest of the planet...

    This is not going the way that I'd like to see it go. I'm not opposed to folks giving this stuff a try, I'm only opposed to becoming involved myself. I'd love to see some results, including images, from those accessories. That is how things get improved.

    Even though I enjoy watching sports car racing, that doesn't mean that I'm in the market for a Ferrari.

    I have not because I have no interest in a Kamado. A lot of folks love 'em, and good for them. Actually, I thought that I was interested in a pellet pooper until I discovered their limitations and the fact that the model that interested me is not without issues that would tick me off at those prices.

    With a Weber kettle, having a Performer model doesn't change the way it cooks, but it does make my life easier and more convenient.

    Also, the new Weber Kettle design uses a similar concept.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

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.
