I bought a new one to replace it, but somehow, it just isn't the same.
Two or three years ago I retired an original Weber from the 1950's that had an almost flat cover. Dad used it from 1955 through 1980 and then put it in the basement. I took it and used it off and on until 2010 when I retired it to our gun club's range for members to use during all day activities.

Sad day indeed when passing on an old friend.

How much coal do you guys start with? Using a chimney starter as a gauge. I don't have a thermometer, so am always guessing. And usually wrongly--too hot.

I smoked two racks of ribs on my Weber yesterday, and realized that it's over 40 years old!!! It is missing one bottom vent damper...and I just found out I can order them directly from Weber by phone! I'll take care of that tomorrow! I used one charcoal rail and kept the coals to one side of the kettle. Worked like a charm!

SWMBO & I cleaned out the freezer and reorganized it. Found some country style pork ribs and some boneless beef "ribs" that needed smoking up. Used the good old reliable Weber. Smoked with lump hardwood and a little mesquite for 3 hours.



Tasty -- even after being buried in the freezer for quite a while.

I have those exact charcoal baskets and use them often. I've had great luck doing high &'fast briskets with them. I found the high & fast method on some smoking forum (virtual weber bullet, maybe?). Do a Minion method to light coals an the brisket can be done in 6 hours.
