Here's my entry. I had an old MBH bowl that was in foul shape and half of a 55 gallon drum. Well, put the two together and its a perfect tailgate fire pit.


A Wonderful Family!!!

Here's an older thread on my wall clock:
http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/weber-kettles-accessories/kettle-clock/

I was so pissed - I thought I had the best idea for mod month... using the metal skeleton frame from a sidekick as a paper towel holder! I measured and it's the perfect width but those corners on the support wire are a real pain in the ass and you can't get the towel roll on there  :-[

Will come up with something new before the end of the month  ;)

How about Co - joined twins?

I built this table prior to owning any Performers. And it was a God send. It consisted of two MT's and a bunch of yellow balua which was oiled.



Not the best photo, but that's all I had in my phone right now.


I have found a better picture...

Or how about a home made Flamenco? In two sizes no less.



This be the Jumbo Flamenco using a Jumbo Joe.



And this is a regular, utilising an SJG.

And then to top it off, the Flamenco got the Korean treatment.

One of the originals that started it all for me was the table mounted MT. I wanted to cook on  a kettle, but wanted some work space.



This was originally built on an old gasser frame with decking wood which was oiled. It has since moved on and belongs to a mate.

Weber Q's have been donors of grills for a number of projects for me. The grate of a Q 200 fits a 22 inch kettle nicely. But if the sides are trimmed, it allows the use of the swing grates as well.



This picture shows how much I have actually trimmed of the original grate.

The 100 Q grill makes a good fit for a WGA.





To be able to still use the lid, I needed to square of the finger holes. It's not done in this picture but this shows the general fit.

I also made some CI grates to suit a WGA from regular grates.

I was waiting for you to show up in this thread Joe  ;). Great work as always mate. Don't forget to put up that tiered grate you made from an 18.

No worries Jayce. Just for you.....

I'll need to dig up some of the photos of the grate and I'll whack them up. I built two versions, and I would like to show which I prefer and why.

Such a nice day - the fantastic light, the falling leaves and the final touches to my Mod Month Non-entry! (604 will notice the basis for my latest Mod - don't worry Matt, no SJGs were harmed!) So without further adieu, I present Genesis Joe!

Take a look around. There are a few features you might find useful:

But wait - there's more!

Hmmm...better look more closely at that. Maybe Sequoia Joe is more accurate?

And how the heck is that Joe attached anyway? I mean, how do you keep pressure on the vents like the flip up bale does and still let them move easily?

OK, fair enough, but how do you keep it from tilting in the frame?

Now, for a gratuitous nudie pic:

After that, I got a little wood myself:

Hello, My name is MartyG, and I'm a handle-matcher!

Oh, just one more thing:

Almost forgot the required vent shot!

Autumn is such a great season for grilling. New toys make it even better!


Those of you coming to the Mid Atlantic Meetup tomorrow will see it in person. (Yes, I'll be cooking on it.) This was a fun project. Gasser frames are often free for the asking and make great side tables. When 604 sent me the Crimson Joe for my e-cook entry I knew I had to work it in to something, but I wanted to be able to return it to it's original state should the need arise. It's a perfect fit for the frame, and using springs on those 3" stainless cap  screws worked out great. (I have another shorty spring and an acorn nut inside.) A place to store and hang chimneys was high on my list, and the few other features just kind of evolved as I worked.

Mod Moth ends in just a couple weeks, but there's plenty of time left to mess around with your own ideas. Have fun!
