I have a Genesis Gold C and I want to buy a charcoal grill to go along with it. I like the taste of charcoal, but I am often rushed so I like the ease of gas for daily cooking. I am not a barbecue guru yet, but I truly want to be, I can't wait to make ribs, turkey, butt, etc.
My question is whether I should buy a Weber 22.5 kettle and use the indirect method for things like ribs, briskets or butts, as well as normal cooking like steaks, burgers, fish or chicken, or whether I should go for the WSM and concentrate on 'cue and use the Gas for everything else. I am really torn and if I had the money I would buy both, but I am strapped and can only choose one for this year. If anyone has any thoughts or wants to give me some idea how to make this incredibly tough decision, please let me know. Any help would be appreciated.
I am really curious to know if you can turn out good smoked meats with a kettle or if it is worth it to really upgrade to the WSM and only do smoking?
