    I just have a 22.5 inch Weber Gold One-Touch, and I've found it to be one of the best wedding presents I received. I've done a lot of smoking in it, and while it's not optimal for that, it does a great job if you pay attention to it. Someday I'll have a dedicated smoker again (I had one a while back at another apartment, which my landlord bought from me, as I didn't really have a place for it), but this works just fine for me. My next step is to get (or maybe make clone of) a pizza kettle.

    Having left Weber (I don't know why) for a series or disappointing gas grills, I have returned to the fold. Had it for a couple weeks and have used it 6 or 7 times. Yesterday i did an 8 pound pork butt in it using the rub Jim shared in the thin blue thread of tastiness thread. Grumblings at it taking 6 hours instead of my calculated 5 were replace with compliments. (thanks Jim)

    Thanks. I considered one of those or something similar before deciding on the old standby Weber.

  6. I just got one a couple of weeks ago so I thieved the pic from walmart. It's a char broil infrared. I've only got to use it twice because it's windy damn near every day here but it cooked up two 1" thick rib eyes to med in about 6 min. With the wind blowing at 15mph. Chicken breasts got over cooked at 8min. Hot dogs take about 2 min for a nice char. I like mine burnt lol

    The firepit started out as a 1946 250gallon propane sphere. It's 48" in diameter. The blank sphere was a gift from a buddy of mine after they demo'd an old house he owned. I sat down with a western metal artist friend of mine and designed the layout of the pit. Since it was 5/16" thick, his plasma cutter would have been a waste of time so the whole thing is torch cut. The horses and people are cut from separate 10ga plate. It is fed by a 1" natural gas line to a 12" stainless steel burner. The burner sounds like a jet engine with the valve open full so what you see in the pictures is only half open. If anyone knows of another supply of these sphere tanks, my artist friend would like some more for future projects.

    I'm a horse lover and Western guy at heart so the design really appeals to me. If I knew of a sphere tank somewhere I'd snatch it up.
    I think it's a fantastic work of art!

    Thank you. I wish the pictures actually gave it justice. Friends that have been over have commented that if it wasn't so heavy, they'd be tempted to see if would fit in their yard.

    Looks like a nice rig Jason. Is the fit tight enough to shut it down if you want to close all the vents?

    I don't think so. Although I let someone else do the cooking. It was a floor model. I would have preferred a webber but the deal was pretty good on this one at Wally World. It cooked up a mean burger. Also some sausages and chicken.

    Slow cooking a pork butt or shoulder sounds right up my alley.

    My Father's Day gift from last month. I'm loving it. Charcoal on the right side, propane on the left. This is the first charcoal grill I have ever owned. I've been working it hard since I got it.
