Hello. I've been slow cooking in my Weber 22 every weekend since the week before the super bowl this year in frigid Pennsylvania temperatures. I am waiting on a Brinkmann Trailmaster Vertical, and trying to guess how much length of gasket I might need. I have a great welder friend who is going to make a fire basket based on that mod store's photos after I find a piece of expanded steel for him.

I'm looking forward to extending my cooking capacity as well as cook times. So far, I've stuck to 4 or 5 hour runs just because it's a PITA to add charcoal to the kettle. All of my friends are thrilled by what I've fed them so far, so I think this is going to be a great summer.
