Weber Kettle Assembly Question

Weber 22 1/2 Kettle assembly question: for those of you that have them,

If you stand in front of your grill, looking at it, assuming that the leg without the wheel is the front.

Where are the two handles on the cooking section located, on the sides of the cooking section; or front and rear of cooking section?

If I remember correctly, they are on the sides. I'll check in a couple of hours when I get home.

My handles line up with the leg that doesn't have the wheel.

Bruce, on the regular 22 1/2" Kettle and the One Touch the handle is in the front with the leg with no wheel.

Yup... It would be a pain to drag it around if the handles were on the sides!

OK then, I was afraid I assembled it wrong. I bought a slide-aside from Weber to hold the lid and when I looked where the handles were I was worried. Thanks guys.

I started to buy one of those last week and didn't because of the handle placement. Not that it would have been a huge deal.

The real reason I didn't was I thought about ordering the one for the Performer.... but I would have to drill holes to mount it. Still thinking on that one.

Scotty,

That was a good point, brain is in Park, mouth is in Drive today.

I put the slide aside on the back and it works great, the lid slides right down into it right over the REAR handle.

And you guys say there is no such thing as a stupid question.
