I cut some legs for a 22, using 3/4" steel conduit. So DaWeber has a Lowboy version, intended to be at elbow height for someone sitting in a chair, like an end table to a sofa. In this version, the kettle rim is 21 inches off the ground.

Hm, I still have the tube cutter and the store still has conduit in 120-inch lengths and 120 is divisible by 3. Thus I have the StratoKettle variant which stands at bar height. It works as a nice height for people standing around; you don't have to stoop down to it. It kind of looks like some 1960s satellite.

Bought this NIB, for cheap, just to pilfer the parts.  Chromed triangle, wheels, legs, grates, & old style ash assembly all went to other projects.  Since I had a ton of spare parts, I decided to make an upgraded replacement for my original Midget.  A little fabricating, a trip to the powdercoater, and a few minutes for assembly led to:



Modded a “sand shoe” for the front leg, just in case my fat ass wanted to take it to the beach.

Thx.  Who needs a plow, snowblower, or shovels when you got a Midget kettle rolling smoke?
