This 26.75 in. Kettle grill is perfect fit for my 22 in. Paella Pan. I've cooked with it on a 22 in. Kettle and it was fine but this larger kettle cooks so much better. It's so versatile from using my Weber Wok for stir fry or for frying fish along with cooking multiple items at the same time. From baking a Turkey or making Pastrami to just plain baking potatoes, it is the best cooking grill I have ever had.
