    Thinking of getting a weber kettle grill. I have a gasser , pbc. and propane smoker. Is there any advantage to a weber kettle?

      Panhead John That’s why I bought a Jumbo Joe. Had to run with The Pit herd! Now I have herd immunity....

    I have a gas grill and a kamado. But I still use my kettles. I have one in nearly every size. If you ask me the answer is yes. I'm going to cook some wings on one Sunday.

      My kettles hibernate in the shop until camping season comes along, then they live in the bed of my truck.

    You can never go wrong with a weber kettle. The advantages? Simplicity of use, durability, variety of uses, good 'ol charcoal cooked flavors...I and probably most everybody here would say it's a great choice. PK360 is also a great choice with about the same advantages. In my opinion a better looking grill if that matters to you, but it's also a bit more expensive.

      I’m not sure if I could part with all of my kettles, but if I did, the PK 360 would be my move. I just like a bigger table, so, I would likely have to get a table made for it.

    Welcome aboard from Virginia Beach.
    Concerning the kettle. I like them due to versatility and all the cool add ons and work arounds that are available that make the cooker unique.

      Good point with the accessories and add ons. That would be one of the cons of the PK grills.

      JakeT you are one honest guy and I respect you a lot for that. I have a PKO and would never let it go. Great grill and your 360 is light years ahead of my PKO.

      tiewunon thank you! Easy for me to be honest in that respect. I wouldn't need any of the accessories on a weber kettle or PK since I have my arsenal of various cookers.

      I only have one cooker and it's a Weber Kettle. It's handled everything I've wanted to cook on it from Brisket to Chicken and most of the meats in between. With the KettlePizza attachment I can also have some nice wood-burning pizza pies. My cooking temperature can range from 225 to 700 degF and most points in between.

        I bought a used Weber q gasser last year. It sits, been used one time. I use my kettles (like Attjack, one in every size) and my Weber wsm. Don’t think of them as a grill, think of them as a commercial oven, but only more fun, because it is a giant bowl that you get to set up how ever you may want.

          Oh yes. No outdoor cooking arsenal is complete without a Weber or similar brand kettle. So versatile. And they’re relatively cheap. SnS and Napoleon make nice kettles as well.

            Yes.....the Kettle and Slow n Sear Combo is Awesome. You might want to check out snsgrills.com and look at their kettle. If I didn't have 3 Webers in my yard I would get that grill in a heartbeat.

              Welcome! Like all the others mentioned all the accessories make a kettle the be all do all and fun. Vortex chicken wings or thighs are da bomb. It’s always fun to spin things on a rotisserie. The SnS makes smoking easy. I had a kettle, then a Performer and now the grand daddy Summit Charcoal which I’ve searched hard for or made made all those accessories for that are so easy to find for the kettle.

              If you’re really uncertain, find a used Weber on FB or craigslist. If you study and see the value, a Performer is great for the table, the SnS kettle for everything already pretty much already there and done you’ll want to do later, and the new Mastertouch Premium (I think) Weber looks cool for using as a smoker with the charcoal ring and diffuser.

                Here’s a review of the SNS Kettle Grill from one of our actual members, Joe Sousa. Our reviewer Max Good also has reviewed this one as well.
                The Slow 'N Sear Kettle Grill is mighty nice, but very similar to the Weber Performer, which is not a bad thing. If you're in the market for a new charcoal kettle grill, read our review because this one may be for you. It's definitely worth consideration. We award the Slow 'N Sear Kettle Grill our AmazingRibs.com Best Value Platinum Medal.

                  I have a Weber Genesis gasser, a Rec Tec pellet grill and a Weber Performer with a SnS Deluxe and the DNG Deluxe. My mood, time available and weather may dictate which is utilized on a specific day. I will say the Performer is the cheapest of my three and we enjoy the charcoal flavor for something different. It took me a few times to understand how the vents control the temp but there is so much help here it wasn't too bad. The ribs on the Performer have been amazing, good luck.
