Buying a Bullet

I'm thinking about buying a weber bullet and have a couple of questions. Been reading on their web site and some of the people are posting they can get 16-18 hours on one load of charcoal.(Seems hard to beleive) Thought I would ask here because I think yall would shoot me straight. Second question is what are the negatives about the bullet.

you can easily get 20 plus hours in a single burn.

The only drawback is how stupid you will feel when you realized
how much time and money you wasted before you finally got it.

About the only draw back is sometimes and advantage…its size…it has a small footprint and is easily portable…but the only draw back is if you like to cook your ribs flat…space becomes an issue….as far as other stuff…it’s a butt and brisket cooking machine..

Pretty much just charcoal, maybe a thermometer if you like but not needed. It holds temps between 225-250 effortlessly.

Might want to pick up a larger water pan for extended cooks. Get the brinkman charcoal pan.

I have always hated the access door. It is formed from a sheet of aluminum. I don't let that stop me.
