Here in Desert Center CA we have winds in the afternoon that are 15 mph or higher a lot. I actually built my gadial ganning to block the prevailing wind so I could grill more often

15 mph is considered fairly calm in Kansas...20-30 is the norm...30-40 is not unusual...

Exactly. I can't see getting anything other then a weber with the ash catcher instead of the ash pan in my area because the winds can pick up during the day. Just bought my first weber, the Master-Touch on Friday and saw a bunch of lit coals dropping into the ash catcher during my first cooks. Would love to pick up some older colorful Webers but they only have the ash pan. Is there a mod to change them to use an ash catcher without too much trouble?

If they have the one touch system it's pretty easy to change over. If they have the 3 wheels, probably not.

I put an ash catcher on my 18 inch, t was a matter of ordering it and snapping it on, best 18 clams I ever spent upgrading a weber. If the notches are not in the leg sockets you can just straiten the ends of the clips and use hose clamps.
It would be easier to let that chicken drink that beer than shoving up his pooper
If we were meant to grill with gas then the garden of Eden would have had a pipeline

Did you have the one touch system?

I have a (I think 99') red OTS, with no notches.

If you have a  new style one touch system the ash catcher bucket fits right on, it is less than a 5 minute mod from walking out the door to the grill and having it on. the slots that it fits in are already on the grill

I just pull my weber around the house. Find a spot with no wind.
I only cancel if it's windy and rainy.
