So… Just how can these two items be combined for DO cooking? Besides a storage compartment for your briquettes, chimney, and other accessories.
I discovered that the lid of a 33 gallon aluminum garbage can fits well in place of the cooking grate on a 22.5″ Weber kettle grill. Now, even though I started off using the lid in place of the grate, since it wasn’t a 100% perfect fit, I opted to instead leave the cooking grate in place and place 6 small 2″x4″ blocks around the perimeter of the cooking grate and then place the garbage lid on top of it.
With that, I can then just flip over the garbage can and use it to keep my coals going for replacements as cooking goes on.
Of course… I could have just used my new backyard fire pit. :-)
