After aprox ten yrs of ownership my nephew gave me an 18.5 kettle. I am 50yr old and have never enjoyed cooking on a grill as i do this one. I was thinking of buying a green egg and he suggested i try the Weber first. Im amazed this little grill does everything i want and have found how easy it really is to be a grill master. I cook on it at least 4 times a week. Now i have been teaching my nephew, and anybody else who will listen, new ways to use his Weber. What a fantastic product!
