Yeah, I'm not sure what is up with the resentment/sour grapes that comes along with SC ownership. It is apparent on other forums too. That guy actually posed an interesting question - just in the wrong thread. And by claiming that the SC is nothing special and how he'd be owning one for $50 did not earn him any friends. At first i was thinking about how easy it would be remove the bowl with a SC and measure it to provide some basic info. But then i thought - dang...  why would want to help this guy?

I have an older twin burner Coleman propane kicking around the back yard that i sometimes use with the charcoal chimney. It's okay for sauces and stuff but i wanted something smaller and cleaner and that i can use indoors as well. Yo can get cheaper versions of this stove and I think that Coleman does or did re-brand a version of the GasOne stove.

Another idea that i am mulling over is to use one of those "bottle top" single burner stoves like the Coleman or the Stansport and then cut holes into the work surface so that the knob can be poked out the front side and the burner could be on top side.

I think you would have to have some pretty strong magnets. I have a couple of old magnets out of an old hard drive. They are pretty large magnets as the hard drive was a full sized 5.25" out of an Octel voice mail system.

Looking at your pics, I see that you have dual hangers. I keep my single hanger positioned in between the two lights.

Tool wise, i have a set of three that i like. The Weber Tongs and charcoal rake are excellent. Not fond of the other Weber tools (not the current models) because they bend easily. I have the grate brush and it doesn't spin inside the handle like other brands do. But i want to get away from using brushes for safety reasons. Don't want to know of anyone ingesting a piece of brush.

Hey man..  Do you have a Summit? If so, you can just skip the magnets and the comment altogether, no problem.

What modifications have you done to your Summit? If you are still just planning to get one, what mods would you do?
