Default Is it me?...or what?

OK, once I decided to purchace a Komato grill I knew I would want to get a side kick, you know for the quick steak or something. I bought a Weber knowing I would get a long life out of it.
What the Fark?
Is it me, perhaps I bought the runt or something, but this thing is short! For the first time in my adult life I feel inadequate!
Now I am 6'3" but still the grilling surface only comes up to my knees!
The question is has anyone else felt this way?
Is there a cure for this problem?.....Do the Pills work?

OK I guess I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this as a problem and had a sucessful extension done? How can I raise the bar, so to speak?

Can you give us more information on what you bought? Or post a picture? My large Egg in it's nest with side tables is at a perfect height for cooking and working.

They are made in the USA so they should be at right height for most.

When I first assembled my OTS, it seemed a bit short. (Especially compared to my memory of my dad's weber kettle from when I was kid) I don't seem to have any problems, however, using the cooking surface to cook. If the height is a real problem for you, it would be rather easy to construct a small box out of 2 x lumber to give it a bit of a lift. I would be sure to secure the grill to the platform to avoid bumping a leg or wheel and tipping the whole kettle over.

Lol. The kettle makes you look like 6'8 or something.

Just dig yourself a nice 2' deep hole to stand in.

Your picture did make me laugh and think to myself it isn't too bad being 5'6" :p

Make a stand for it, or like someone else said, 86 the legs and build a table for it.
