Thanks to @mike.stavlund I'm coining a new term: Crowdmodding! Sometimes the best mods are a team event. What started as a quick fix might just become the next big thing. Your ideas and experiments are welcome. Keep 'em coming!

Someone on the TVWBB combined baskets years ago and made the whole thing adjustable with a wingnut or something like that, but I think i like the simplicity of 'the bigger basket'

No they didn't. I was first! First I say! Just like the WKC - the very firstest Weber lovers club ever in the whole wide world.

And don't call me a wingnut!

This is a really cool mod for indirect cooking! Have already used it several times for that.
I had hoped to use it with my KettlePizza but it doesn't sit far enough back against the inside of the bowl. Using the tombstone / SnS combo I can just push wood off the back of the tombstone and it lands on the coals in the SnS. With this basket if I tried that it would wedge between the curve of the basket and the inside of the kettle. Also puts a little too much heat under that back edge of the stone. Bummer since I bet the openings on the flat side would keep temps under the stone a touch hotter if it just sat a little further back.

How many wings can you fit on the 22 with the mega basket?  50 if I counted right. [emoji16]

This large basket idea is great! Any idea how many would be needed for an RK? I am guessing 3 at least?

Thanks for this idea! I took an extra set and made one in 10 minutes, then used it today!

I smoked a chuck roast last night. Half lit half unlit weber coal in the big basket. Water pan under and top and bottom vents half. Grill was 240 when I left at 6pm and I returned at 11 pm and grill temp was 230. Apple wood for smoke. That weber coal is some nice stuff.

Also, I used olive oil and rubbed with Tony's then dusted it with black pepper. That paired well with beef imo

So I made my bigger basket for my 26 last weekend. It worked great! I think I'm going to get a few fire bricks to put in front of it truly make a 2 zone setup.

Love it so far! It was super hot above the basket. With all the vents shut the cooker was still at 150 over 4 hours later!

Thanks for the mod.

Next up is using 3-4 baskets to make mega basket for the RK.

Thanks. My question is... how do you guys do low/slow with this? Pile up unlit briquettes and add a few lit ones (Minion) or use starter cubes?
