Member’s Mark 22.5” Kettle Grill: Problem, Cause, Solution.

Though I’m no longer a member of Sam’s Club, I acquired a Sam’s Club exclusive kettle grill. During assembly I made a mistake! This mistake caused me frustration, time, and caused the porcelain coating to chip. I did not try to return it to Sam’s because I’m not a member, the nearest Sam’s Club is 70 miles away, and it was my fault. In the end I correct the problem.
Later I repaired the miss sharpened kettle and painted the porcelain. Then I seasoned the grate and cured the kettle. That video can be seen here.



That grill is alright Big Lew……..just needed a little attitude adjustment!! Like that grate too. Take care bud!

Drôle de merde sur la différence de dialecte français. Vous avez raison. J’ai étudié le français à l’école, mais j’ai grandi autour de joueurs de hockey. C’est très différent.

Good video and can’t wait to see you cook on it!


Funny, I watched this and commented when linked from YT to FB YT Cooks . Don’t see it. Maybe it wasn’t linked, or maybe I thought I hit the post button and didnt. Anyway, being a SAMS member, I have looked at it close a couple times. I liked the four legs (I’m on concrete or pavers), liked the CI grate. I had a big question about the venting capacity, especially the bottom. Could hardly turn the top vent. I had the same out of round issue with my WSM, but got it fixed using the Squeeze method. Enjoy that new grill brother.

Louis at R shack BBQ says:

I have seen those and like you-got excited for the cast iron. I haven’t bought one but look forward on how it does and if the ash system works out.

Lasse's Food and Barbecue says:

Douglas Chrystie says:
