This is a great idea. Thanks for posting. I have been eyeballing the slow n sear but being north of the border it is $175 by the time it gets here. And thats for the cheapest sns. Gonna give this a try

Just bumping this post to make it easier to find. Hopefully I'll get a few minutes to knock a couple of these out.

I want to make 2. 1 for a 22. I think it will be great for rotisserie and general use. And another larger one for the 26.

 I just got a new mastertouch today and was wondering what to do with the charcoal baskets because they just don't seem to fit the kettle very nice. I really like the idea of keeping the hot coals away from the porcelin, and tghis will do it. Thanks for posting

That's awesome @greenweb. Exactly what I have in mind. I like setting coals on one side only for roti and a single stock basket isn't big enough for the amount of coal I like to use. Hopefully this basket mod will help save my kettles as well.

I'm wondering if I'll need 4 baskets for the 26" or will I be able to make a big enough basket out of 2?

Wouldn't be hard to make a separate water holder by bending up a peice of metal and clapping the ends. A similar shape as the water holder on the sns. It could have a lip at the top and just hang on the flat side of the coal basket. Either the inside or the outside.

Got mine done. My measurements were a little different. It holds an overfilled weber chimney and room for my drip pan. I might need to sacrifice another basket to help keep coals off the bowl at the bottom gap. I'm mainly concerned about my redhead.

Super! That could be real useful in a 26er, imho.

You should be fine with 2. Notice how much bigger it was before I made it smaller.  I left the straight edge side as is , but you could make that side longer for your 26er setup.

You could put lot more charcoal for longer cooks without refueling with this.


But I wanted about the size of the SNS. So I had to make it smaller.



I have another idea to make another set in 2 half sections. Normally, put them together and use it like one large basket but when using Kettle Pizza... put it as shown with my other large basket so I have a large C shape baskets.

Beer can burgers stuffed with grilled onions and peppers and a couple slices of jalapeņo. They were finished off with cheese.  They are really good. First time making them.
