    As of right now the A/C is almost perfect. I got it rigged up so it can run tonight. Finally discovered the leak and eliminated it.

    The hot water heater should be kicking by noon tomorrow

      Thankfully things weren't worse, worse as in paying someone $120 just to show up with tools.

          • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

            Always thought hot water heater was a dumb name. If its already hot why do you need to heat it?? Shouldn't it just be called a water heater? Glade you were able to figure out the problem with out having to pay some body (would have cut into your meat money)

              It actually is called just a water heater. My usual smartass comment when someone calls it a hot water heater is "why would you want to heat hot water?"

            Been there, done that, no pics though. It happened before photography was invented. Now for the rest of the work, put in a new one.

                  I deal with those water heaters all the time! Bad design! It's either u got too much pressure going through to the burner and fusible link shuts it off or the control goes bad. I hate working on them!

                    Ok I don't mind the $120, but I don't want to pay the $120 just to show up. if I go to home depot and buy a new one, I object to the guy telling me there is a fee to respond. I will pay for installation, but I don't need to pay for some guy to come by and confirm my old one is beyond repair when I have the new one sitting there.

                      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                      slow n sear
                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      the good one grill
                      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.

                      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      Grilla pellet smoker
                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
