    that's a great looking basket!

    I owld only be concerned that the small holes might plug with ash, but if that does happen, you can always drill a few more larger holes. I wish I knew where to buy a basket like that.

    Thanks for the complements guys.

    But as I mention in an earlier post. I have all the resources to build the basket, so I did. But now, SmokyOkie has me a worried about plugging up with ash. I plan on using lump when I start smoking. So I can see that happening. Plugging up is something I never thought of, I was worried about air flow. Now I'm thinking I will build another one. Same design but the bottom will be made from 16ga Galv. sheet steel. Cut 3/4" wide and welded/space about 3/4"-1" apart.
    Anyway, I brought home 5 more skids to do another burn out this weekend. I also brought home two more barrels. Turned someone onto this stuff now he wants to build a UDS for himself and one his dad.

    I guess this stuff is addicting.

    Do Not Use Galvanized metal on your fire basket!!!!

    Sorry I got you worried, but why not try to use it first and see if there is any prollem.

    If there is a prollem, you could just drill a few extra 1/2" holes here and there and and fix the issue.

    I thnk that is the finest looking charcoal basket I have ever seen.

    OK, Ill give it a try. But just curious, why not "Galvanized metal on your fire basket!!!!"

    I could probably build someone a basket. But dont know about SS. I just got lucky there with having enough scrap around. Let me know if you interested, we can work out a price. You would have to cover the shipping though.

    Galvfanize puts off foul poisonous fumes when it burns.

    Roger that.

    Here is a photo of the second burn. As you can see, Red & Jada are patiently waiting for some good eats to come off this thing. The people next door think I'm crazy, keep asking what I'm doing??? Just wait until they can smell the smoke.
