Well I love this little barbecue. what a hidden secret.
I have a few things I want to mod and accessories I want to get. Thought this might be of interest.
First Mod - cut the grill and make a offset plate and charcoal tray. an offset plate is around $60 and $30 for a charcoal tray. Plus postage.
Popped down to my local cheap-cheap shop and found this baking tray and had a go at DIY. Spent less than $10 on these two.
Finished product first
Made sure I didn’t get anything with PFTE/nonstick/Teflon coating, PFTE bioaccumulates and also is not for high temps. I won’t use it in cookware and it’s definitely not suitable for contact with charcoal.
The pan was too tall so it will need to be cut down and the sharp edges hidden with a squash fold. Had a go with simple tools. Hacksaw to cut the grille. Tinsnips and sheet metal vice grips. Used a step drill to make the holes.
The tray is also close but slightly too big so cut the ends and squash folded, and also folded the sides down to suit. Bent it into a 90 degree upturn.
The reason to cut the grille is to allow it to sit down against the charcoal tray when packing in order to get more room for accessories or charcoal etc when travelling. It also allows the grille to be slid back and forward during the cook and also new coals added.
This was a great mod.
