Oh man that really sucks! I love my dogs, but they beat stay away from the CasaQ!!!

Case you lucky lucky lucky man.

Dad a green Weber Kettle.  It never made it to their last move and is gone forever.  Fortunately Weber came back out with the color so I bought a new one. But I think about dads a lot and wish I had it.  Dads signature dish was Hawaiian Chicken. He didn't spatch it like you do.  But man oh man was it good.

Fire ring, goes above the firebox

 

 

The two side halves and a little chunk of the firebox, on the ring.

 

 

The bottom of the fire box in place

 

End of the tape is resting on the slightly flared edge of the firebox side that rests on the "lip" in the smoker..

 

 

The lip is 10" up from the bottom. 19" on the outside, 17" on the inside.

25 years in the auto parts biz  JB weld is a great product for some things.  But not for that…

Anything further on this project? That's some pretty neat stuff.

Still in a holding pattern until I figure out what to do with the firebox.
