    You're talking about the Bro' N Sear project where the guy breaks open the left end of one Weber basket and the right end of the other, nests them together at 19" wide, and screws them together to make a DIY Slow N Sear? I don't see why you couldn't do it, it will just be more work because this stainless material is thicker.

    As for buying them, the Amazon link is the only source I know of. I'm not really sure what the status is anymore. As noted in the original post, they were produced by TVWB member David Somerville, made to his specs in China, and sold on Amazon. He also made s/s cooking grates for a while. I know he had real challenges with overseas production and with Amazon as a sales channel. I'm with you re: trust of the current seller at $54...maybe not David anymore?

    I’ve been on a mountain top in Alabama for a week and had no internet access, I’ve not seen the “Bro N Sear” hack. Not sure I give a hoot about it but, I’ll look for that.
    I have enjoyed my baskets and (I’m sorry to admit) really need to give them a good cleaning after three years.
    They are just so superior to the Weber “stock” ones there is virtually no comparison.
    I’ve tried so many “hacks” and alternative set up configurations with limited success, I have decided that, for the most part, the original setup from my Dad’s (1972(?)) paper cookbook still work better than most “Improved” set ups.
    I will admit I’ve NOT used a “Slow and Sear” but, I might borrow one from a buddy and give it a test drive.
