I have a used mid section, no door, that you can have for free, you would just need to pay for shipping.Does anyone have a simple tutorial of this? I just scored a 18" OTS for cheap and wanted to convert it to a smoker. Looks like the information is sparsed and not a definitive go to pot?
Rich, Pat wants to convert an 18" kettle into a WSM. The pot you're referencing is for a 14" mini WSM.Pat, here is the one you want it's a Vasconia. Go to the reviews and the second or third one the guy states he bought it to make a Weber smoker and it fit perfectly. It's also the one I have for my mini.
I think the pot is a little over priced, maybe you can find it cheaper somewhere else.
Pat, check out CaseTs thread in this section.
It's been done...this one with gas conversion.Had a wild hair about interchanging 18" WSM & 18" kettle parts myself, but was concerned about the spindly legs on the kettle.
Occasionally, I see used 18" kettles for sale at low cost, and I had thought about doing some modifications to make this work. Having an ash sweep on the bottom of a smoker might prove useful. I sometimes wish the 14" WSM had an ash sweep.
Yes, from a Go-Anywhere portable gas grill: http://virtualweberbullet.com/gas-and-electric-conversions.htmlNo charcoal to deal with reduces the weight, but I wonder if the legs could support three to four butts.
Is that gas burner a Weber product?
