Thanks @56MPG. Putting a 22.5 kettle in a Genesis frame could prove to be quite tricky. Might have to rethink my plan.
I'm using a old wood panel genisis frame,  works perfect as a prep station. I cut out the frame where the ignition sits and I'm thinking about wedging a gas go anywear In the spot as a chiminey station it fits but it's tight some scraping will occur on the sides

For me, the sharing of ideas like this are one of the best things about this forum.

I love awesome looking and practical mods. I want to build something in this arena, but I haven't finalized the idea yet. 

I like the simplicity of these

I'm with you, bear.

I'm currently suffering a mental block when I see old Genesis for sale. Usually, the darn grills still work and I can't then think of what I'd do with all the guts if I used just the table. But that sort of table with side burner is of course, the perfect compliment to a SS Performer.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

Just go for it, A-T-S!

My table was a very complete Silver-C, it's only fault was a broken caster. I now have very few of the unused parts left in the bone pile. Most of them have been sent off to keep other old Geneys going.

@CharliefromLI ,I remember now!

I went to Ace, and got a couple of adapters to get the regulator and hose to connect directly to the side-burner.

It can definitely be done!

I will look tomorrow to see what I did to delete the manifold.

@pbe gummi bear , it is aluminum. I got it from the cutoff rack at a commercial metal supply.

Well now.....maybe I wont be giving away that gasser that sat on my deck unused for more than a whole season!  Its not a weber, but maybe I can still use it for something after all.  Hey @CharliefromLI ...whereabouts on the Island are you?...I'm south shore in western Suffolk. 
Its amazing how quickly one weber kettle turns into more than a dozen!  Always open to grabbing something interesting so let me know what you've got!
