Amazingly clean install.  Great job, that grill is definitely an inspiration.

Man that mounting of the propane tank is nice.  I didnt think it could be done sideways....now you have me thinking.

I leave my Slow N Sear in the kettle 90% of the time.  For the burner tube, I copied the idea that @ed3120 and @pbe gummi bear have pioneered - positioning the ignitor to the right of the mounting bracket.  This allows you to focus the flame right under the fuel when using the SNS.






Winz


I've done similar, but with a twist.  I rotate the burner tube 180 so the igniter is mounted up rather than down.  I think it protects the igniter better and also allows the wires to be dressed nicer and out of the way.

So, are there any issues with mounting the propane tank sideways???  I though there would be which is why i didnt do it that way in  the first place.

You think if there isnt, then Weber wouldve mounted them like this from the beginning

I need to replace the burner tube on my latest SSP acquisition.  Its an EE Code red head.  Is that the same burner tube from a new Gen of the performer? 

I gotsta git me one o' them!!!  The old one works but is quite rusty and the flame is a lazy yellow rather than Blue like my Black SSP....

Nice Mod!!!
Lets just say I have acquired a few Kettles.  Big and small.   Vintage and New...  Some say I have a problem.  I find the Kettle, buy the Kettle, USE the Kettle...No problem...

The burner tube is the same for all gas-assist Performers. The regulator for the SSP is different than the Gen2 and all later Performers (which are all interchangeable, I believe.)

Thank @haeffb.   I did order a new one from ereplacement.  The regulator is good.  Just the tube is all wonky...  didnt mean to hijack...  and now back your regularly scheduled discussion...
