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!



@MartyG That is un-freaking-believable!!! Talk about fine craftsmanship - that's the perfect little rig!

And the Crimson looks great against the fall leaves and with the beautiful Cedar trimmed cart! Even the little OEM accessory hooks off the performer as the lid holder??.... Sweet!

Sequoia Joe FOR SURE.

And the handles?!? Paper towel holder?? I keep seeing more and more - amazing.

Marty - great idea, great workmanship, great execution! 


I really like the clean design and layout.  Functional and beautiful.


Well done!


Winz


PS - an idea - if you could "pull the pin" (the bolt from the table to the SJ) that keeps the SJ from rotating around, would it allow you to rotate the SJ bowl to dump the ashes?

Winz, I had the same thought, but didn't have the exact right bits to make it happen. I got close, but ran out of gas with a bunch of other stuff going on. Once I have a little more time it will be a simple fix, which means it will stay like this for years. :D

Still need to work out a nice lighting rig. Getting dark earlier now and that will be needed. I think this will continue to evolve, trying out new ideas as they come to mind. Ideally down the road it will turn into a custom stainless cart with all the best features after they have proved themselves.

Or not...

I wonder if anyone from Weber monitors these threads?  There are some possible ideas for consideration in these mods very nice

That's a sweet looking cart.

Here's something a bit different, and some may see as distasteful. But it shows the true Circle of Life!

Webers aren't only for use at the end of the food chain.....but at the beginning too!

If it breathes, we can cook it!

That's an AWSOME cart 604! I'm in the process of modding my old geni 1000 frame to hold a 22 and a jumbo Joe.
