Weber 22.5 Silver One Touch conversion question

Post by ahrjmrecr » Tue Jun 23, 2009 11:14 am

Can you convert a Weber 22.5 Silver One Touch to a Gold One Touch? I want to go from an open ash catcher to a closed ash catcher.

Thanks.

The best source for this info is straight from Weber --> http://store.weber.com/
The toll free number is on that site and they should be able to guide you in the right direction. I've heard of people converting their OTS to an OTG before so I'm sure it can be done. You could even get the side table and turn it into a OTP while you're at it.

I emailed Weber about a conversion kit. Weber said they do not sell a conversion kit to upgrade from a Silver One Touch to a Gold One Touch grill.

It appears you are correct. This is the thread I was thinking of ( http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tp ... 8780080215 (and for some reason I was under the impression that it could be done. If you are handy at all with a grinder of even a dremel you could slot the legs where they meet the bowl and then it would fit for sure. It's likely easier to just buy a OTG.
