I was advertising for a weber in any condition or any parts. A gent mailed me and said its dirty but sound, how's $20?. She was going to be a donor for a UDS build but was just too good. Date stamp O, 1992.


and after some oven cleaner and a pressure wash.

A red performer has a new home. It just needs a little TLC, the damper blades are toast, the ash catcher is loose and the cooking grate is rusty. But it has a full tank of gas.

I've been searching craigslist every day looking for one of those. Very nice. Stainless top too! Wish they still made those.

There's a guy North of Ft Worth that advertises replacement wood handles for Webers that he makes. Next time I see one of his adds, I'll post a link.

Anyone have a good suggestion for how to replace the damper blades when they are completely rusted through?

I know you can get a replacement kit, but my problem is that the damper mechanism is held in place with a wingnut. This whole thing is rusted together, and it looks like the best option would be to drill it out. However, I'm concerned that subsequent hole from drilling will be too large for the replacement.

Have any of you done this before, and are there any pitfalls I should work to avoid?

My kettle is from 1996 and going strong - just can't get the temp very low without the bottom damper blades.

I would use a large drill bit or a hand held grinder to remove the screw head on the top of the old blades then just pull the remaining screw and wing nut out from the outside bottom of the kettle.

At leat that is what I would try and it should not damage the hole.

This was the condition of the one I got off'n CL...

I took a Rotary CutOff Tool to it and replaced it with damper blades from an 18.5" Weber Kettle I had modified, Works Good!!!
Hope you get yours fixed up.

Mine is completely rusted through. I just tossed the ash sweeper and only use it for grilling now. But she still works!

I have a Webber that I grabbed from the curb a few years ago. Best grill I've ever had. Where is the date stamp located? It looks pretty old.

Check here: http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/wsmage.html

WSM and Kettles use the same stamp on the vent.

Default Turkey On a 22.5 Kettle

I'm looking to do a turkey on my weber performer. The problem is I don't have the rotisserie ring. I was thinking indirect heat(minion method). What is the largest size Bird that can be cooked? How long should it smoke, if this is possible at all. Welcome all responses and recipes.
Thanx In Advance.
