Today I picked up a nice side burner for a side project.  All thanks to 56MPG for making it happen.

The burner is in great chape and only needed a good dusting to look perfect for my intended project.

Beautiful. Nothing looks as good as the red and blue SSP in my opinion.

I've got two Blue SSPs and IMO they don't come close to how beautiful those Red SSPs look.  I'm jealous. [emoji1]

More folding:


and cutting:


Now fitting;


Concept 1 complete:

 I was going to attempt to keep an access hatch for small things but I'm tired and I really need a shear and break to make clean cuts and tight folds.

I'm thinking of a one pice smooth top from kettle to end.

Still need to plan tank hookup and mounting.

Looking good Glen. Tank could go to the outboard side on the right like the Genesis. It's starting to look look like a model Weber should have made back in the day. Must be 20 or 30 of us that have had the same idea, glad someone is finally making it happen. Another Mod-Month entry in the works!

Ordered the grate for my Outrider and I got carried away ordering the OTG system for my 18 midget as well so tomorrow Weber is shipping to me my grate, one-touch cleaning system and ash catcher assembly.

woohoo

once I get the grate I will do my first cook on my new old Outrider but for tomorrow I'll be using my new to me go anywhere.

Maiden voyage with the GA today and boy it was good. Set up an indirect cook, beans in the basement and cooked a full rack of pork ribs.

Coals on the left, foil covering left grate, ribs on the right, lower vents opened on left & closed on right, left upper vent open, 5 coals in chimney lit with 10ish unlit (added 5 mid cook)







rotated ribs I think 5 times at approx. 45 min, total cook of 3hrs with a quick cook of 10min after lathering with Famous Dave's Sauce, 1/3 was kept basic with dry rub.









Absolutely delicious and juicy with a slight smoke ring coloring (too good to take pics), buddy of mine worked at a rib shack and enjoyed them. Looking forward to more cooks on this thing.
