I've read a good deal of this thread but have not gotten the specific answers i am looking for so forgive me if i am repeating -
instead of building a coal basket i took a smokey joe knock off (Thermos) and cuty the legs down to 2 inch and drilled a bunch of holes in the bottom. i put an eye ring in the center so i can retrieve it with a fireplace poker.
also, i bought a 1" ball valve that i am going to attach with a steel flange for my air control. i alos drilled two 1/4" holes on the sides of the drum 2" off the ground.
anybody see any problems with either of these 2 modifications?
I'll get some pics up later tonight..
