Trying to Mod ECB

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have been doing some mods to my ECB and it must be an older unit it has the round Dowel Handels rather then the flat wood style.

I have been trying to find a Grate for the charcoal pan but haven't had much luck.. I read on Randy's site and he says he used a Smokey Roe Grate (13") Well the top opening of my pan is only 12 3/4" at the widest I found that a Charcoal Grate from a Smokey Joe is 10 1/2 inches and would work even if I have to add blocks under it...

Well no one locally has one so I called Weber and they refused to sell me parts if I don't own a grill...

Does anyone else have a suggestion for a grate or where I might find something similar??

I have plenty of hardware wire around here-I cut a piece close to the shape bent over the ends and whala-I have a pretty simple grate-burned off real good of course-has lasted alot of smokes so far-when It goes bad I make another.

Gourmet ??

Well I went and picked up a Gourmet today (from the sale I got the ECB) i saw it the other day but the Water pan and grates were missing so i passed it up...

Well I brought the gourmet home and the grates work out of my ECB but the water pan is too small...

Was the water pan out of the gourmet a different size???

I'm thinking of taking the brackets out of the ECB
