Weber One Touch

After 30 years of gassers I'm considering going back to wood with an 18.5" Weber One Touch (Just the wife and me). Does anyone use lump instead of charcoal, if so how do it do? Also, is the easy cleaning system on the Gold worth the extra bucks over the Silver model?

TIA

I've used lump and briquettes and to me the cook identical. YES YES YES, the GOLD is worth the extra bucks.

I think the gold is worth the extra...and I would go with the 22.5 instead of the 18 even for two people the 18 is kind of small...

Re: Weber One Touch

Well you spitting out quite a few oxymorons here. Lump is charcoal...briquettes is coal and starch and leftover pine trees etc..depending on where the plant is located. It also don't compute that anybody be planning on using wood in a Kettle. Good lump taste eggxactly like electricity and propane..meaning if it got flavor it prob aint the flavor you want. Color me puzzled.

I try never to disagree with Dave and Nick, but don't shy away from an 18.5" -- our family of 4 grilled on one for nearly 30 years before adding a 22.5" (because we were having a party). My 18.5" is injured, and I think I'm going to fix it. I miss it. A lot of the time it's just right.
