  1. I've got a situation at home, so I'm selling my beloved WSCGC. It's less than a year old but has been cooked on weekly on average. It's well seasoned and functions like a top. Asking $1500.00, it retails for $2300. If you're close to Bham AL, let's discuss this, sure would like someone in this group get this cooker. Comes with the cart and grill, 2 Weber baskets, plate setter/diffuser, cover, the Weber Summit Cookbook and a bag of Weber briquettes.
  2. Just saw your post about the Summit. I too was between the Big Joe and the WSCGC. I went with the Summit, mainly due to portability. I do haul mine to and fro, so this was the deciding factor for me. The Big Joe is an outstanding grill with lots of inovative additions. However, my summit has been rock solid at holding temp. I've over shot my temp a couple times and it settles back in quickly. I cannot say the same for other ceramics, my brothers' input not mine (brother owns a BGE and Big Joe). Coincidentally, I find myself using the gas assist on quick meals....like chicken, burgers, dogs, brats, etc. The cart that came with the Summit is perfect, has everything thought out. And I want to ditto the above, Baby Back Maniac's videos aided my decision making. IMO, you can't go wrong with either the Summit or Big Joe, both are great grills. I did see a post where Ace Hardware has KJ's on special. Good luck.

    @Sammers510 If you think you'll be unhappy with the classic, since you purchased at Costco, maybe they'll issue a refund. Also, the shows typically last a week. Maybe he's had some time to get over his bad day and is ready to deal. Otherwise, sorry your experience was less than ideal. Good luck in your grilling future.

    What causes dry ribs?

    It has been my experience that lack of fat or over cooking produces dry ribs. This is one of the reasons we always cook St. Louis style. But some other ideas previously mentioned could be the cause.

    Yes, I’ve got it on my calendar to check my local Costco the next few months. I looked at the Weber Summit again, it had scratches from the movable tool hooks. That was a sign to move on. Excited about the Big Joe sitting on my porch.

    It’s a little dirty, but it a great grill/smoker.
  10. I’m selling my BSK in hopes of upgrading to a Big Joe. This grill has all necessary accessories. Please ask questions. Text 205-677-5227. I’m in Bham, AL metro for those that might want to pick up local. I don’t have shipping costs, but assume it’ll cost upwards of $400 to send to lower 48. I do have an eBay listing. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323050743039

    That is true, but the Weber is much lighter and won't crack. Seriously though, just putting that out there. Did some research on the units and found them to be very appealing. Rust is one of the reasons I sold my Traeger, plus being mechanical it just wasn't working like it use to...... I'm getting the Big Joe, but just doing due diligence.

    Well to further complicate things, I got a great price on a Weber Summit today. $1350 for the standalone unit ($1799 for table version).....Hard decision now. Both are great grills, just gotta make a call I suppose.

    Thank you LargeRed Joe, this is what I was needing. Looks like I'll be traveling to Georgia at the end of February. That price is a a $500 swing compared to local pricing or anything I've seen online. The big joe is selling around $1700-1850 around here....
