You'll like that, but in my view the next model up has a new nice things, like a thermometer in the lid, that is useful.

 

 

That one does have a built-in thermometer already.

 

@ShinyChrome It's the ash pan I'd be worried about - a gust of wind and it would go everywhere by the looks of it! So I'd still suggest the next model up, but for a different reason.

 

This place has it for $399, but the pictures look a little different (the ash basket isn't black like on the Weber site). But assuming it's a genuine product that wouldn't bother me.

 

I've never used a Weber Kettle, but I've only heard good things.

I can only quote the Propane master, Hank Hill.

 

 

 

Taste the meat, not the heat.

Whoops, yes got my models mixed up. The Ash pan can't be highly enough recommended. I'd never buy one that had an open tray like that.

Good point, thanks for the suggestion. I know a few people who have ordered from TradeTested, they seem fairly reputable. I was trying to be a cheap-skate and use my Airpoints, but that looks like it would be a worthy upgrade. Especially here in the Manawatu, where we famed for our entirely still weather where not much wind happens at all.

Ash is light and fine, you could fart and spread ash :)

Turned up today , I have to admit it was one of the most easiest things to put together that I have had come in a pack. Everything fits perfectly none of this having to bend things because it is 5mm out or something.

 

Turfrey was fantastic to deal with kept me updated every step along the way of it being shipped. 

 

Looking forward to playing (and eating) around at the weekend.

The gas cable in the picture is not secure properly @JaseNZ

You need to screw in the black bit
