    Weber 26'' Kettle and scaffolding grill cart

    Hi All,
    New here and new to Weber grilling. After doing a little research, I knew I wanted a Weber 26''. Also, I wanted a portable grill table with a solid cover. I have plenty of space, but in Florida everything rusts.

    So, here is what I did:
    1. order the Weber 26''
    2. Order scaffolding from walmart (I can provide details on which kind if needed). I knew the scaffolding would work size wise, cause I uses a set for storage already.

    3. Painted the scaffolding black with spray on high temp grill spray. This was a mistake cause it scrateches and shows the yellow easily. Bu I just touch up as needed.

    4. inserted the kettle. no bracing required but I chose to sink one screw in a secured board just to be needed. The Kettle seats on the metal framing with no adjustments required.

    5. Cut up an old cedar water bed headboard to create a table.
    6. Used the a metal rod to become a support for a light roof
    7. Used a metal screen door frame to support a light, aluminum (tin?) roof.
    8. Made the front of roof adjustable for tilting purposes.

    9. Added a screen to help with the sun.
    10. Added lighting.

    Done

    I did this 4 weeks ago and it has worked perfect for smoking and grilling every weekend. Even worked through a Florida downpour last weekend during 12 hour beef brisket smoking.

    For your first post Charles that is spectacular! Nice work! What kind of scaffolding did you order from Walmart? I would like to do something like that for my 26er. I like the idea of not having to drill the kettle bowl.

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Pro-Serie...lding/15609528 I got it for $129 on April 21. It has gone up to 155, so shop around. All the big box hardware stores have this same scaffolding by diff brands. I got werner from home depot a few years ago which was how I knew the weber 26'' would fit.

    That is a cool idea. Never thought about that. That scaffolding provides the base for a roof. How high is the scaffolding?

    That is a very cool idea, i really like the tilting roof idea that can be handy anywhere. you have a good sized work surface room for storage under neath and it can move easily. SWEET, now actions shots please.

    What a neat idea! That's what we call a baker scaffold. I have two in my garage, one for a rolling storage unit and the other is a rolling miter saw/workbench.
    We use those everyday on the jobsite, and I'm gonna share your pics with the crew.
