    My only regret is I didn't get it sooner. Find myself wondering if I shouldn't get an extra one just in case.

    Smoking77 Thanks, unfortunately the vendor that is supposed to be assembling my replacement grill & delivering it to me has dropped the ball. Weber confirmed that he has had it since Jan. 22 but he has not contacted me yet. Weber said they would follow-up. I will make the video if I ever receive it LOL.

    FWIW, it took my SIL several months to get hers back. Her sense of taste took quite a long time a well.

    Thunder77 The gas lighter is handy but not strictly necessary. I rarely use it to be honest. In the upper position (kettle mode) it seems a bit faster to simply use my chimney. In the lower position (smoker/kamado mode) it works much better...but it’s also easy enough to simply light a number of briquettes in the chimney. It’s the only feature that I would probably not miss.

    Plus, in a year or two, if you don’t want it, someone does! You will be able to sell it.

    I agree, with others. Keep going after it, don't makes plans for the future based on struggles of today. Smell it or not, make it! There is some real mental wellness in staying engaged in activities, for the love of it, even if parts of that have changed. Find other parts that you like about it. That grill may just be the medicine you need right now. Also typically loss of one sense, generally makes others stronger, have fun paying attention to things you did not recognize so plainly before. Just my .02

    I know a few people who tested positive and lost their sense of smell. They are all doing better now and the sense of smell has returned. Many thoughts and positive vibes being sent your way.

    Take care of yourself. You will be grilling again soon!

    Sorry to hear. I hope it comes back soon. Don’t give up hope yet! I too have heard it can take months.

    So sorry to hear this, praying that you recover your sense of smell. What I read says that nearly 25% of those who lose their sense of smell from COVID may not recover it within 60 days, but 95% have recovered it within 6 months. Praying you recover as time goes on.

    Maybe your sense of smell will still return, Thunder77 . I've read articles where people say they finally get it back after 6 or 8 months. I hope that happens to you.

    There will always be another BBQ deal to consider. It can wait. The important thing is to give your body time to heal completely.

    I wish you well.

    Kathryn

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


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.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

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!

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
