Good deal. My main concern with products like that is their resistance to heat, since if it doesn't hold up well it won't matter what the top coat is.

Hey now stranger :D Weber cusomer service said that it wouldn't fit :( Oh well, I'll use the performer for that, and double check it on the WSM when no one is looking.

It fits the WSM just fine--upside down. I haven't actually done a burn this way, but I assembled it as such and ran it and it seemed fine.

Well, another alternative is high-heat engine enamel, too. Some brands are rated to 1200-1300°F. I'm working on restoring an old fireplace on my deck and that's what I've been using for it, and it seems to work quite well.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

My oldest Weber - 22 1/2" One Touch Silver is 14 or 15 years old. Sits out uncovered 24/7 365 days a year. Rain or shine - it has been buried in 22" of snow. I do put it under an overhang on my deck when not in use. I also keep it cleared of any ash residue. It's aging more from use than abuse but I've never had any rust issues. The triangular bottom shelf that also reinforces the legs has some surface rust as does the rivet for he top vent but ... so what! Cooks as good today as the day I took it out of the box and put it together. I keep my 26 3/4" OTG and both my WSM's cleaned and covered with vents open when not in use.

I've had this old soldier a LONG time, and it's been a great cooker.

Can't argue with a 22" Weber. I use an 18" a lot for direct grilling for 2 and a 26" is the go-to for wings, but when it comes to versatility the 22 is the way to go.

Those rotisserie chickens look great!

Just picked up a really nice 18 off CL for FIVE DOLLARS!!
Haven't had one for a while and it seems sooo tiny.
Did some t-bone. Were pretty good.
Have to make some adjustments.
I'm 6'5", going to build a platform with some 24 inch
pavers to raise it up a bit

Would love to have a 26!
I'll keep looking.

Great score! Is it a One Touch model or an old-school Bar-B-Kettle with the disc vents?

One touch.
Also scored a nib Simpsons Smokey Joe
And a Woodard cart with an 18 old school.
Gonna try and resell the Woodard.

Did you ever check out the WeberKettleClub.com ?

You really should.
Some of these guys are NUTZ about Weber stuff.
Apparently I'm quite normal in comparison.
