    Hello

    Hello, my names Mike. I joined the pitmaster club today after ordering a large amount of grilling equipment. Within the next few weeks I'll have a brand new weber kettle 22" fully equipped with a Slow 'n' Sear, drip 'n' griddle, elevated cooking grate, and easy spin grill grate (all from snsgrills.com). It may not be a pro setup, but I'm very excited about it after cooking on the 10 year old Walmart gas grill all these years. Here's hoping my first charcoal experience goes well!

      Hawker - That's exactly what I thought. It seems like the original kettle is a mainstay, especially since there's an entire company (sns) devoted to it's accessories!!!

      First thing I suggest is to make marks on your ash sweeper where the vents are full open and closed. Once you load it up with the SnS and meat you'll not be able to see the vents. I also added a third mark where I found my kettle ran around 225* to 250* for those low n slow cooks.
