Adding a hinge makes opening and closing a Weber smokers and grills effortless.
The clever folks at Team Unknown got tired of looking for a place to put their hot lid, so they built 2 stainless steel hinges, one each for their Weber Smokey Mountain and Weber Kettle.
Of course everybody who saw it wanted one so now they sell them. It has a clever little latch so when you open the lid it stays open and won’t slam on your head when you stick it in there to smell your meat, and a pin that you can remove so you can take the lid off all the way. The pin has a bearing that prevents it from coming out accidentally. Mounting it took 15 minutes.
The only problem? I needed to buy a new cover because the old one won’t fit over the hinge.
