Roof flashing is generally thin aluminum. Not the best choice for this project imo.  You would be better off finding a scrap of stainless somewhere.

... or working a little extra and supporting a small business.
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

Itís important to support the folks that come up with innovative ideas for our hobby. 
Posting ideas on how to save a few dollars is not going to encourage new innovation, and frustrates us that appreciate the entrepreneurs that invest in an idea to help others.

The truth is that weíre a niche hobby here. Our outward enthusiasm is what brings things like the Vortex to market. And yes, our same creativity towards mods and tweaks will lead some of us to make Poortexís and other accessory copies that partially are parasitic. Thatís the bargain manufacturers (including Weber of course) make to have our kind engaged.

I think overall we as a group strike the proper balance, meaning the majority do in fact buy the original thing for reasons of practicality.

All of which is to explain my comment better: I get the OPís desire to make (or have made) his own version. Examples of that sort of thing are everywhere here.

I mean, itís just a damn cone. But as noted, itís a SS cone for not huge money, whereas aluminum flashing is closer to a waste of time. And weíll always herald the great and try to steer a Grillfella to better solutions, honestly.

I donít blame him at all for wanting to make his own or have someone make it. He could customize different sizes. There will always be customers to buy the ready made version.

Personally I donít care if anyone made bbq gadgets. I donít need any of them.

And it looks like you guys drove him away. Nice work. [emoji17]

Believe me when I say Iím sensitive about the ďwalled gardenĒ environment that can sometimes be foisted upon new members. Thereís always an initial social adjustment. And yes it took me two posts to better explain where I was coming from, so Iím proud of that.

But I am not and will not be responsible for anyone packing up ALL of their posts, including unrelated ones on other threads (?!) and apparently exiting.

yeah you

Actually YOU neither read (or chose to disregard) everything I typed after my initial response.

re: ďGFYĒ

Thank you for the suggestion, but I must respectfully decline.

Hope you feel better soon.

P.S. Each of us has the ability to edit our own published posts at any time, but I understand thatís not convenient when youíre spitting nails.
