Weber lid mod complete (almost)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well I did it.

Here is the attachment complete. There are large nuts between the drum and the Weber kettle section to prevent twisting the kettle. there was a 1/4" gap I need to fill.

here is the gasket stuffed in the gap. I have Hi-Temp RTV, Red. Will wait and get something in black.

For those really tall smokes. The rotisserie ring.

The mod went well and the kettle stayed round and level. We will see this weekend, I'll be doing a pork shoulder if things go as planned.

I just have to see if I can talk my neighbor out of her Weber. wink.gif

Where do you find old weber grills for this mod?

Behind the shed. I am a packrat. I bought this one new 18 yrs ago. Chopped off the legs when my sister gave me their "nice" red kettle. I took the shortened one camping. Now it gave its life to fulfill a UDS. The ultimate reincarnation.
I do see them on Craigslist all the time for $20-40.

Best time to look for one is during "Spring Cleanup" days in your community.......In our throw away society these days you should be able to find one..........Flea Markets (Swap Meets, Tag Sales) are always an option...........And of course Craig's List usually works.

Good Luck, John

Looking at the rotisserie modification I noticed that the section which holds the rotisserie bracket was placed between the lid and the rim of the old kettle grill which you installed. Where did the section with the bracket come from?

Thanks, John

That is a Weber original rotisserie. Came with the rod, motor and adapter ring.
Guess what? It is not reciprocal with the Genesis grill. The turned section of the rod are spaced for the kettle not the gasser.

Thanks RW,

I have a universal rotisserie which I am going to try to adapt. Looks like an adapter ring will have to be fabricated.

Take care, John

spring clean up is great we have that in our area as well, I was there getting rid of my junk and got 2 webers in a matter of the 15 min I was there.

Thats a great idea with the rotisserie ring. Nice looking drum
