    Enjoying the WSC ... it is awesomesauce!

    OK, I have done a few grills on the WSC, and I have to say that it is so fun and easy! I loved my Weber Performer, and with the SNS in it, the Performer was hard to beat.
    But I have to tell you that the new WSC is much better in so many ways. For example, the temps are very easy to go from low to high and back again. I am amazed how fast this thing gets hot, and how easy it stays there. The lid, being hinged, doesn't need to be placed somewhere as you work on the grill. The bigger space helps, the design of the upper ring makes spinning the grill grate a snap when you want to rotate it. The smoke, wow I get so much more with less wood than I did before. Maybe just me but it works! And the efficiency of the grill with the fuel. Outstanding! I can see why they eliminated the hinges on the diffuser. You just load up the charcoal and go.

    Really really happy and having fun with this new style grill/smoker.

    Edit: Forgot to add, and this is important, that the food has come out more juicy and moist than when I used the Performer! Maybe something to do with the higher dome, but this difference alone is a game changer!

    Thanks for your review!


      They are great grills. Enjoy!

      My go to charcoal cooker. So versatile and easy to use.


        Glad you like it! I love my WSCGC.


          I recently attached the Fireboard fan and it makes it even easier to control temps.


            I love mine too. With a vortex and modified big joetisserie, it’s just so versatile to cook anything. I need to play with the Hunsaker Griddle more too to figure out the fire management for good temp control.


              That’s the name of the game, happy & fun!

              Hmm, no pics eh?


                Yup, a WSCGC is instant love right out of the crate. Mine, named Mr. Fancypants, is going strong for over 4.5 years now. Solid performance every cook.



                  CRUSHED a Pork Butt this weekend. Used Meat Church's Honey Pork Rub. Nice. Family said it was the best I have ever done. AND it was super juicy.

                    Did a Nolan Ryan beef rib eye for myself. Also tried out the new to me Meat Church Holy Cow rub. It is heavy on the pepper. SOOO good. Seriously one of the most flavorful steaks I have made in awhile.

                      I'm curious about that fire distribution. Looks like you've got a Vortex there? Why the coals around what looks like the diffuser plate? Disclaimer: I could be all wrong about this. Sometimes its easy to misperceive a photo, at least for me, at first glance.


                    I love my WSCGC...incredibly versatile & efficient.
                    A Vortex turns it into a serious wing cookin’ machine.

                    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.
