    304 Stainless Steel Charcoal Baskets Heavy Duty Premium

    Hey everybody,

    TVWBB member David Somerville has come up with a new product that you should check-out...he's built a better set of Weber kettle charcoal baskets than Weber makes! Here's some info that he sent to me recently and a link to purchase at Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...F5DG0Y/tvwb-20

    -----

    Around December I bought another set of Weber charcoal baskets after the set I had rusted through in a single grilling season.

    I was aggravated that Weber’s aluminum plated steel charcoal baskets were essentially designed to be a disposable accessory.

    I decided that instead of complaining that I would do something about it.

    I tracked down the factory that makes the baskets and asked them if they would make me the same baskets but with two changes.

    1. Make the baskets TWICE as thick as the current product.
    2. Make the baskets from 304 Stainless Steel.

    The factory made the charcoal baskets for me and they are beautiful.



    Here is a side by side comparison of the custom basket with the Weber basket. The stainless basket is on the left. If you look at the metal tab that completes the assembly you can really see the difference.



    I can’t tell you for certain how long these baskets will last but I am guessing at LEAST five years.

    There was a catch……

    In order for the factory to work with me I had to place an order for 500 sets of charcoal baskets.

    I really don’t need that many for myself!

    If you think these baskets might look pretty sitting in your kettle then you can pick some up at Amazon. They are priced at $29 a set.

    Chris, did you get a couple? I am thinking these might go well with my WSCG. The only question I have is that it looks like these are slightly redesigned. Do these hold the same amount of charcoal as the originals?

    No, I've not had a chance to try these yet...they just came on the market...and I have two sets of brand new, unused charcoal baskets, so I'm set for a while.
