 I just ran to Weber on my lunch break. Char baskets are on clearance for $5.03 so for a grand total of $10.76 with tax.
 I now own a pair of 26 inch charcoal baskets.
Thanks Marty. 👍

Congratulations on the 500th post Marty.
I probably shouldn't tell you that I drive about 2 blocks from the factory on the way to and from work.
 Sorry 😂

I don't have a S&S, so can't compare. My thought was to keep it as simple as possible. I couldn't come up with a no-screw version in my head, so I went with this. I figured everyone has baskets and could cobble this up in no time. Much as I like to tinker, if Weber made a bigger basket like this, I'd be a customer.
coulda used rivets but if you wanna take it back apart would need to drill

Thanks! I was not even watching for that. I started over as I was approaching 3,000 posts a while back. (You can still find me as MartyG.) Took a long nap. Focused on some other things for a year or so. Came back right where I left off, but under a new user name. It was kind of fun being a rookie again. ;)

Thanks for the great idea. Most of my cooks are indirect with one basket absolutely stacked to the hilt. Gonna give this a go.

Thank you @56MPG for motivating me to make mine.  Nothing bolted, screwed, or riveted except one SS hose clamp.

So far so good. I will try to make a block off plate for the front straight section.

Nice! Looking forward to other's ideas. Nothing like teamwork to get the problem solved. It's like Mod Month Spring Training!  8)

So Kneab, I see your in LITH, when you say you ran to Weber, are you saying the Huntley location?

Nope. The factory in Palatine. I work about 5 miles from it. I don't think you can buy anything in Huntley. I have never been there. I probably should check it out.

Yeah I kind of figured as much I don't know if Huntley sells anything either. But if Huntley did it would be a whole lot closer for me living in Woodstock.

@ Davescprktl - If you want the same size as mine ( almost exact same size as the slow and sear ), join where I marked in violet color so you do not have to do what I did shown in orange to make it smaller.
