When you buy a kettle to use the top on a UDS, what do you do with the bottoms? I need a Weber 22.5 bottom for the kettle I keep at the office. The one I have is rusted out where the legs attach. It is from 1991. Anybody have an extra?

I think a lot of folks are cutting the rim of the bowl off and mounting it to the top of the drum for a better fit.

If I score a 22.5, I intend to keep the bottom and use it sometimes :-).

Exactly what I do. I use the bottom to hold the chimney when lighting and use the kettle (with the lid) when it's time to grill. It's a multi-tasking lid if you may.... Cheers!!!

That's a good idea. Did you just cut the legs short with a hacksaw?

On the kettle bottom planters... how do you do it... just close the vent and drop your potting soil of choice in? I have a kettle bottom that would love to become an herb garden.

This is brilliant!
