An additional; comment or two. If this was going to be my primary grilling equipment, I'd pay the extra and get the top of the line. The added features and equipment will be appreciated over time.

On the other hand, since you have a gas grill for the majority of your grilling, the kettle will on;y get occasional use and the extras aren't as important.

This is the case with me. My primary grill is a gas grill and I use my 22" basic Weber for smoking. I did add the fancier grill surface that has the hinged sides to facilitate adding coals and wood chips.

I think one of the best improvements Weber made in the Master touch series is the Slide back cover vs the removable cover with the hook in the middle found on the original Webers.

Remember the old Son of Hibachi BBQ? I bought one eons ago. They still offer a cordless rotisserie, the only one I know of. I adapted it to my portable grill. If only that Weber kettle had something for the spit rod ladders to clamp on to. Anyways, a cool gadget from 1979.


One D battery easily lasted me two bbq seasons. Plenty of spit torque.
