B Code Red 22.5” Fixes needed
« on: May 04, 2021, 04:07:01 PM »
Picked up a nice little CL free find today. Have A code 18” but this is the first 22” MBH I’m adding to my collection. Little rough around the edges but still very pretty.

Any resources for replacing 3 vent wheels on bowl? All are missing. Also, last picture shows the bowl is getting eaten through. Any patches I can do here?

Congratulations on your first 22 mbh.   You can buy replacement vents from Weber.  There’s other sites like grillparts.com, too. 

The bowl is a tricky matter.  That’s rough, unfortunately.  The larger holes might be addressed with bolts, nuts and fender washers.   I’d avoid placing coal on that side or use baskets.  A bit of JB weld on the exterior smaller holes may help.  Again avoid coals against it.  Perhaps, a black kettle donor to transplant a section of bowl as a patch?   

Cellar2full has a thread on fixing some bad damage.

I used this to plug some small holes in a beat up black kettle.  I taped the holes on the inside and applied the epoxy from the outside.  When the epoxy firmed up I pulled the tape.
