Is this measurement the weber smoker itself or is it the grate ?
My drum measures 20" internal diameter, so the real question is...would the 57cm / 22 1/2" weber replacement grate fit inside ?
Any help appreciated,
Cheers and beers

How about buying the cooking grates for the 18.5" kettles? you will likely need longer bolts to hold them in place. Hopefully the length of the bolts won't interfere with pulling the charcoal basket in and out. Another option might be to rig levels in your drum by bolting short lengths of chain that would hook onto the grates. When you take the grates out, the chains would fall to the side and leave plenty of room for basket removal. I have not tried this - just thinking aloud.
