Bought my first 22.5" kettle earlier this year, will not be going back to a gasser (or anthing else for that matter) ever! Only annoyance is our crappy weather combined with seeming to be at work all the flamin' time stopping me from using it!

I got WSM, two kettles and Smokey Joe, no better way to do the Thanksgiving Turkey than the kettles, count the brickets, watch the clock and tada!

Has anyone played with the rotisserie option? I use roto on a custom built open face monster my Gramps built 65 years ago and love it, but saw the Weber vesion and though Hmmm even better turkey maybe...

Oh one other question, has anyone tried the tool holder that fits between the kettle and lid? Looks to me like it would not let the lid cloce all the way in pictures I have seen...

Yup, I've got the tool holder, no, it doens't stop the lid closing, thought it does make it tad awkward to close i.e. you have to fiddle a bit to get the lid just so so it'll sit nicely.

I added to my Weber collection today. I picked up the performer today for $20 from craigslist. The 22.5 Kettle was bought for $10 last summer.

Just got my first kettle a few months ago - 22.5" OTG. Intended on having it for weeknight cooks or as something I could grill on while smoking in the CG or UDS. It has immediately become my main grill because of it's versatility and ease of use.

Haven't done any mods, but I do have one in mind. If I ever get around to doing it I'll post pics.

Added a 22.5" to the arsenal recently. I love it. Easy to use and great flavor. Look forward to many years of using it.
