Weber One-Touch Platinum Charcoal Grill

Weber 1361001 22.5-Inch One-Touch Platinum Charcoal GrillI've needed a new kettle grill for a while now and tonight I ordered a Weber One-Touch Platinum Charcoal Grill at Lowes.

I wanted a blue one, but according to the Weber sales literature at Lowes, it's only available in black.  They must not make the colors for the big box stores, but I swear I saw a blue one on a couple weeks ago.  Tonight only has black and red available.

Tip: If you tell the big box store you're also shopping and comparing prices on they might give you a discount.  I did and got a 10% price reduction, which turned out to be $20 cheaper than

The best part is, I'll have the grill on Thursday.  Look for some future grilling recipes and videos.  I've always wanted to try a pork butt on a kettle grill.  I guess this is my chance.

Congrats, Brian! Barbecue is great but during the week, grilling is king in our house. I look forward to seeing what tasty items you grill up soon.

I had to remind The BBQ Guy that one of the reasons he decided to start smoking was a horrible pork butt he cooked on our tiny grill back in 2000. Now I have laid down a challenge, let's see how long it takes him to put together that new weber and get the charcoals hot.

Yep. It was a picnic...and it didn't turn out well.
