OK my replacement smoke fire showed up. It was actually packed really well and fully assembled in a crate that said property of Weber. There were some loose screws and bolts because of transportation most likely but it looks to have been tested and used. I did have to update the software. One cool note is that the sticker on the front was a static sticker this time instead of a pain in the butt sticker to remove!

I put my upgraded grate in. The Gbs grate does not seem to be compatible with the grate clips?
It’s a little warped but we will see how that goes definitely excited to get this going and cook something tonight. Too bad I froze all my ribs. We are getting the storm tomorrow so I may not be able to really put it to work till this weekend

I have the GBS grates in with the clips and it’s perfect, what are you referring to as warped?

one grate does not sit level at all 4 corners. it rattles a little bit so i may need to bend it. that box was very beaten up so maybe that is the case. At least i have backups :)

I had a good cook on it tonight. Just made some chicken breasts and potatoes. I screwed up and forgot to take out the finger guard and the pellets bridged. Oh well I pushed them in and it did come back up to temp thankfully

Hope this one is good for you.

Do you mean the front shelf? Would you want to sell it?

I really should have bought the side shelf instead

Very nice, good info. What didn’t you like about the front table?
I had one custom built a while back that I love!!

I felt it is kind of small and the few times I used it I would rather have more room. Here is a pic of my grilling space- I built this table for my genesis. i’m thinking of putting the table perpendicular and have a grill on each side. I built this 16 x 16 deck specifically for cooking and I have another space for hanging out dining and entertaining on the other side of the deck

Very cool. I appreciate the pics especially because I am planning building a prep table for my grilling area this summer. Any tips for the build?

This was pressure treated 4x4's for legs and 2x6 for the sides. I probably should have 45'd the corners on the table frame but honestly just getting the table square was simple with dry PT wood. if I did it again i might put some drainage system so things stored under the table stay dry but the snow really gets everywhere here in MA anyways

oh man- It hit me- I need a slab of granite countertop. that would be classy and easy to clean! Anyone in MA or nearby know of a granite recycler? Will check on craigslist
