Salvaged a Performer and a spare mismatched lid with no handle and thermometer. Raided my parts bins and ended up with this  :)

So tempting to put the taters under the chicken!

Had more time today and got rid of the spaghetti wires

    Nice work! You do know they make a rotisserie kit? It has a spacer ring to raise the protein up a bit. Pretty cool though. The kit isn’t free by any means either.

    Thanks all for the kind words. @pgprescott yes I know about it, I'm too cheap to splurge 250 loonies for a rotisserie kit on a salvaged kettle, plus it's boring. The satisfaction of jury rigging something is priceless  :)

    That's farkin' brilliant, Gary!!

    The SS Performer is a nice addition. Love the SS work area it has.  And those old charcoal baskets are waaay better than the new ones they switched to a while ago.

    Very nice looking bird, and nice mod.

    BTW, I looked everywhere for one of those handles, but Weber doesn't make that part anymore, and it's a weird hole center.  I ended up having to fabricate one.

    @caliking ; hard to believe, it's my first kettle! love the storage bin too.
    @blasting ; that handle is a good candidate for 3D printing!  Speaking of handle, I made the kettle dome handle with a band saw in five minutes, still has sharp edges.
