What a great site. Found you guys from Steves How to Grill Book. Just put together my Weber 22.5 platinum. Does it need to be seasoned, if so how? I want you guys to know you helped me go with the weber charcoal.
The porcelin coating on the Weber's does not need to be seasoned.
I would light a chimney full dump it in, leave all vents fully open and let it burn for 10 or 15 minutes. Oil your grate and cook something.

Maybe I will pick one up to take on my Beach vacation coming up next week. At least it will give me a reason to stand outside and, you know.. check out the beach bunnies...er...I mean steaks, burgers and ribs. =)

Hey Big Belly, I think you may be thinking of the Weber Smokey Joe Platinum which is a 18.5 inch portable grill. The regular size Joe's are 14.5 inches. The 22.5 Platinum, although it has 2 wheels, may be a little cumbersome to throw in the car for your next road trip. BTW Welcome aboard!!
