Just looks like an incomplete bottom that got away from Weber on the assembly line. You could add intakes to that one, or even just drop in another used kettle if you happen to find one. For $20, I'd be more than happy with it too. The cart alone is worth more than that.

Great score.

I don't know why yours doesn't have the normal intake vents mine has them. I can see on the bottom of your ash catcher where the handle to adjust the vents went. I don't know what model mine is because I got it for free from a house that I was cleaning out after the renters moved out. Can your table top open up? What does it look like under it if it can.

Exactly. If you drop another kettle bottom in, you won't be able to to use the starter if you ever decide to get one (at least not without cutting a hole), but I would not let that stop me.

In fact, I probably would not even fuss when the starter. Just use it like it's a platinum. For 20 bucks and some spare parts, it's a great deal!

Or maybe call/e-mail Weber?

I've learned from the US Brethren that they provide their customers well.
Over here Weber does a very good job if I may do say so.
I would contact Weber and explain what your problem is.

I'll do that before I do any mods. Maybe they'll make me an offer i can't refuse

At the very least I can put 3-4 UDS style nipples for intakes, after drilling holes in the bowl. Will likely solicit suggestions for air intake mods from the Brethren when I start cleaning her up this weekend - it's killing me that she's sitting in the garage waiting to be cleaned up

If it is a 2003, it is still under warranty.

It is completely missing the One Touch sweeper system.

I wonder if it is the original lid with some other grill's replacement bottom?

That is the darndest thing!!

It is still a mystery to me.

I'm reviewing the Weber Kettle Appreciation Society thread again and have already found some great info. I found a link to a parts site from Weber, where you can select a model and it will show you every single part in an exploded view.

According to that site, it looks like a pre-2000 Performer, without the propane assist. The lid may be from another grill. However the specs manual still shows the One-Touch cleaning feature, which mine doesn't have. What I don't get is why the bowl on mine has no slits or vents for the One-Touch cleaning attachment. I also noticed that the bowl in mine appearss to have a flat bottom as opposed to the rounded bottom seen in other pictures of a similar model. Maybe my grill is an assembly line mutant as suggested by someone above?
