Ok, most of the modifications are made. I think where this has an advantage over previous mods made by others is that I've got most of them in one place.
First off: The necessary eyelets for your probes to feed into the WSM:
The addition of a second charcoal grate. This was one that is intended for the 22.5 Grill. Works great because the fire ring just fits on the outside of it.
Next is the wheels on the 3 legs. I think I might change this to a single caster on each leg. The current ones work fine, but....... we'll see.
Did I happen to mention how great the empty box is as a temporary work bench. Next is the holes for the new middle shelf:
3/8ths Stainless Steel Rods in place to act as shelf support.
Middle rods in place above bottom grate, top view:
New middle shelf in place:
Top shelf in place:
Handles installed. Note hole in the middle of the handle. The hole will receive 3/8 rod support for future shelf. Gotta have a place to put the tools. My apologies for the disssimilar nuts and washers. I needed 1/4-20x3/8 and didn't have all in same metal. That's gonna get fixed REAL soon. Shelves will get fabbed up in the near future.
My thanks to all the unnamed contributers for their individual contributions, suggestions and ideas for BOMBing the WSM. Those handles sure are handy when lifting the middle section into place.
