I looked for a couple weeks on CL and couldnt find a used Weber kettle for a decent price, so I grabbed a CharBroil kettle from Menards that was on sale for $38. I figured that was a decent price for a lid & grate. The lid didn't fit. Since I'm not a welder I got a little creative with a 6' stick of aluminum and a riveter.
What size intake did you go with? Are those 1" pipes and ball valves?
I'm really liking the aluminum ring idea. I've got a little hand riveter... I might need to make use of it now
