Default New Indirect Baskets from Weber

When I bought that Ranch Kettle a last month, I ordered new handles for it from Weber. I also ordered a pair of these baskets. I finally fgot around to opening the package this morning, and look at what they are making now. These are new to my knowledge, but if y'all have seen them b-4, well, opps! Anyway, I am sure the way this thing is configured it will provide better air flow, so should increase efficiancy of coals... Any thoughts?

Looks like quite an improvement over the ancient ones I'm using. They are just about burned up, so I think it's time to get a set of these. Thanks for the photos!

Had not seen those yet. Thanks and as said they definitely look to be better quality.
You would think Weber would make a bigger version for the 26" and the Ranch.

Definitely agree. Time to log into Weber and order a set and see what else is new.

Those baskets are not new. Those are the same ones that came with my Performer in 1998. I just got two more sets off of Ebay in January. What would be more likely is that Weber continued to receive complaints on the sheet metal style and has reverted back to this one. Good move on thier part. A much better coal basket IMHO.

LOL I'm not that lazy. I can't find those baskets on the site. I only see the sheet metal ones.

I like those, they look better than the sheet metal ones by far.

Here's were I got mine on Ebay. You will probably have to call Weber to order these direct. They are not on the site.
