That is a stunner! The fiber wrap really tricks it out. Great workmanship.

The silhouette would look great.

For some time now I have wanted to custom build a WSM cart out of performer frame, but wanted to do something special rather than just bolt it together and be done with it. 

Well, after some planning, testing and tweaking I have finally come up with my own personal dream smoker 8)

Modifications:

- New Style Ash Catcher Assembly
- 3M DiNoc Carbon Fibre Wrapped Front Plate
- 2015 Metal Performer Table
- Lid Bale Deleted and Capped with Acorn Nuts
- Added Lid Handle With Hooks
- Rear Legs are UNMODIFIED! kettle legs - only painted and bent to the shape of the leg
- Added a reinforcing sleeve over the rear axle to keep the legs at the correct distance and prevent flexing
- The new Black Maverick 733 also arrived just in time




Those are very nice mods, but the one important thing that I would suggest you consider to make this your "dream smoker" is to add either Happy Cooker or Economy Kettle internal ash pan to keep the One-Touch vanes from clogging on Low n Slow cooks or just add a BBQ Guru Universal adapter and smoke on.

just sayin'
I cook on: Backwoods Gater, Lang 36, Hunsaker Smokers, Pellet Pro 22" WSM, BGE's, WSM's, Cajun Bandits, PK Grills, Drum Smokers, Genesis Silver C, Weber Q's, Cookshack 008, Little Chief, La Caja China #2, Lodge Sportsman...oh yeah! Weber Kettles! Kamado restoration and pit modification hack!

You must have read my mind! ;)

Matt how well does the 3M DiNoc Carbon Fibre clean up after a cook?

@Josh G

So far no issues at all! I like to keep things pretty clean as I go so nothings really been left on long enough that it needed to be scrubbed at too hard.

I've also used the DiNoc on some interior trim parts in our Jeep and it's held up really well for at least 2 maybe 3 years now so it's fairly resilient.

Thanks a lot.  You did a great job on it, makes a huge difference on transforming an older style performer into something modern.  Weber needs to offer you a position!
