    It seems like everyone has a little different twist, but the end result is still the same. Nice baskets that hold the fire in place for better control.

    Cowgirl - you're a building / fabricating machine. Do you weld too? I think I'm in love

    Thank you Pigcicles.
    I wish I could weld...I'm currently trying to talk myself into an EZ wire welder, but I'd have to have someone show me how to use it. lol

    Key is always pratice, practice, practice. Get a good helmet and don't skimp and go with a cheapy welder - you will get what you pay for. Let us know if you push yourself into getting one.

    For my BSKD, I kinda did the same thing. I used some pipe nipples and joints to make a base, and used a mixture of sheet and expanded metal to make the basket itself. Also, I cut a "V" in the back side so that I could add sticks or charcoal without opening the lid. This was 3 years ago, and it still works great, even if I was chastized for using "flimsy" metal...

I just wired the corners together figuring once it got hot things might expand or relax and cause gaps.
    I made it so the ash drawer would slide out with it in place. It holds plenty of charcoal mounded up.
    Way cool! Been thinking of makin' one for my CG SFB. But I got caught up in the drum craze, but I will make it some day. I like that you can slide out the ash drawer w/out disturbing the basket. for sharing!

    I forgot about some of the basket designs. I gave my square basket to a friend with a sfb. And it's gotten some good use. I've made a whole slew of UDS baskets in the last few yrs.

    Tom did you ever make a basket for your sfb?

    No it sat around and rusted out before I ever got around to it. So I got rid of it. But I did make one similar to your design to go into a nice little cast iron grill/smoker given to me by a friend. I in turn, gave it to another friend along with the char-basket.
