Weber Charcoal Grill Question

CindyJ | Jul 21, 2010 06:46 AM

After 20+ years using gas grills, I'm about to transition back to charcoal. I've heard people sing the praises of the Big Green Egg, but that's too pricey an investment for me as a charcoal "newbie." I'm considering the Weber One-Touch Gold 26.75" because my son just bought a 22.5" Performer and told me he thinks I'd find that cooking surface too small. So here's my question: When using a grill as large as 26.75", if I'm only cooking for two, do I need to fill it with loads of charcoal, or is it just as efficient to build a smaller fire with fewer chunks?
