Seems to me that there may be room for three of them with that much extra height? Looking at Desert Dweller's BDS, you could get 15 butts in there with three grates.

Dang, I can see that now that you mention it. Now I wonder what the 26" will hold.

I think I'll just order 6 grates From Weber Co. Smoke on Bro !"

LOL that is great. Now share what you did and what you would do differently. How big are the intake holes for instance.

Or, maybe you have a thread on it that I missed?

How many support points does yours have Norco? I was thinking the interior u-bolt support system might help spread the load somewhat, but also wondering if 4 support points is enough?

Wally World sells those cheap UniFlame grills. They did sell one (and maybe still do, but I haven't looked lately) that has 24-1/2" grates that are hinged. The top measures 26-1/4" inside the lip. These might provide your grate and a domed top.

Very helpful post Norco -- thanks. I have been thinking 4 u-bolts, knowing that getting 4 of those suckers aligned level will be tough.

Maybe you can check with Smokin Turkey if you don't think the grate is sturdy enough.
