    Looks great Ralph! Do you use a cover for this?

    Ralph,

    It's not hard to see why you were able to sell quickly. That 26" mod was gorgeous! Great job on that. It would have been hard for me to part with, but you did well.

    To hell with the mod, I just want to find a 26" on craigslist. Few and far between around here. (Not knocking your mods, they look great!)

    Yeah, there's not enough 26 sellers and too many buyers looking for one cheap. And most sellers want some outrageous money for them. If a somewhat cheap rotisserie were available for the 26, I would have kept it.

    Lew,
    I have been thinking hard about selling my very special 26” flat top, unused since I restored it. I won’t give it away having put high quality stainless grates,etc. on it. But I would rather see someone who will use and enjoy it have it. It looks like I am driving to Valdosta on August 24, so if you are up for a road trip may we could do something.

    Here’s my post about it with pics:

    I love that. I just wish I could find a used 26" kettle in our area for an acceptable price.

    Stefan, the gent who bought it came from Denton and said he had 3 or 4 26s and offered to bring me them and the parts to build more of these.

    I declined, not really being able to do the woodwork.

    I’m just going to wait until I find one and then go crazy and visit my wife’s cousin for a day or two. He is an amazingly talented welder with a fully equipped shop and I mean fully equipped! I’m crossing my fingers about finding one and then sitting down with a sketch pad and see where it takes me!
