Although Weber kettles work great out of the box there are tons of mods you can do if you like to tinker.
I have a silver model and this place has inspired me to try some mods for my kettle. I always wanted to get more table space, but now I may have to do a mod for the ash catcher (clip-on piece a . . . ). And the side tables have always been in the plans, but never got around to it. That'll have to change.
Yeah, with all the recent threads woth kettle mods, a sticky, or at least a FAQ, should be in the works.
