Actually... I'm not sorry for talking about BGE accessories.  There's something wrong when us Weberholics have to buy accessories from a competitor.

Wanting & looking for leads to a blue 18.5 OTS kettle & a blue GA.

Finally got around to this long overdue project. Making this a shorty was the plan ever since I got it this summer. A big thank you to @LightningBoldtz for selling the grill to me and @No1Agent for delivering to Iowa. I already had the grate and was looking for the grill to go with it. By a strange coincidence, No1Agent was my Secret Santa and gifted me the awesome custom Zav WKC / Iowa handles that this baby is now sporting.  So thank you to all who had a part in this!

That’s really nice!  What’s your plans for it? Will you cook in it?

Thanks. Definitely plan on cooking on this one. Debating about the grate, but the grill will be a cooker.

Anyone ever made a midget Ranch...? :)
Multiple kettles and WSM's. I am not a collector, just a gatherer... and a sick bastard.

question about the 22 with ash can..... how low can you go? what is the height of the bowl?  im guessing about 23 inches with 6in wheels. im wanting to use a shorty for my wsm bottom if short enough.  Do or have many of you used your shorty for a WSM bottom?  if so, pros or cons?

@GrillGuyMosier - My 22 WSM has a red MBH bowl (the mid-section & lid were gifted to me, so I've never had a proper WSM bowl for it). Being a MBH 3 wheeler, it does not have the ash can... instead, I use an 18" ash pan underneath it, and a Happy Cooker internal ash pan inside. I've found that I can not effectively use the minion method for long cooks. Temps seem to get away from me pretty quickly. I haven't used the big WSM in awhile, but the last couple of time I used it, the snake method was the way to go.

I know there are some Fellas that have mounted their WSM onto Performers.  @Jeff has a unique plum/burgundy SSP (not a shorty, however) that has a One-Touch bowl.

I have one (crappy quality) pic from a few years ago:
