Bigger better basket for my 26er
« on: January 12, 2020, 06:46:45 PM »
Iím really spoiled now that I have a 26er. I use to rotate all my kettles evenly on my cooks, but Iíve had a 26er for sometime now and thatís pretty much all I use for big and small cooks. I had a surplus of baskets laying around so I made a bigger better basket and itís fantastic. Iím kinda bummed because I bought a set of brackets to hang a red kettle in a gen 1 performer frame, but I like my 26er so much I donít think Iíd go back to a 22Ē kettle!

Well...you could use the brackets on the 26 & mount it to an SSP frame.  The bowl would sit higher out of the frame, but the frame is lower than the newer performer frams anyway ...so....

Iíve seen 26ers mounted on a performer cart but Iím not a fan of the look. Iím going to see about maybe modifying a genesis cart to mount it on instead. That way I can have side tables and a built in side burner too. Maybe.
