Building my charcoal basket:
So we found a dog tie down that we thought would make a perfect handle but I have a concern about it maybe being toxic? It's magnetic and sparked so it's definitely not aluminum but is there anything else I should worry about?
Starting the burn out, it burned for 2 hours (is that enough?)
A shot of my friends shop:
So I took it back home and coated the entire inside with vegetable oil and am going to season it tomorrow after I paint it (any tips for this?)
