Found a nice 22.5" WSM on Craigs List last week...
I wanted to add a few things to it...here's where I'm at:
Started with Glenn W's version of the 3-in-1 Charcoal Grate Modification without welding.
After I was done with the wheels, I noticed the center section was out of round... I gently tried to "reshape" it and this is the best I came up with...
you can slip an American 10¢ coin in this slot. It's no big deal, I'm not gonna sweat it. The rest of it is darn tight.
I bought the CajunBandit Stainless Steel excess door (the original aluminum door was pretty much beat to heck)
Also added Russ Turner's Lid Hanger & Retaining Ring design.
I'll be adding side handles to the mid-section and some sort of handles to the lower cooking grate.
All these mods I did to my 18.5"WSM with the exception of Russ's lid hanger. I will now do that to the smaller cooker.
I wonder if a larger than 55 gallon plastic bag is available... the 55 gal bag is a bit too tight.
Then, of course, with side handles on this large WSM, the original cover will not fit, will hafta order from Weber the 26" kettle cover.
I'll post here photos of the side handles later.
Thanks for swingin' by
