I had a job interview today and when I got home, my 60 qt. steamer basket was waiting for me. I wasn't planning on starting until Friday but I couldn't help myself. I started where most finish off, the charcoal basket. That is what the steamer basket is for.

Here we go. I didn't like the height of the basket so I cut off the rivets holding the handle and then cut three inches off the top. I drilled an additional set of holes around the bottom and drilled new holes to attach the handle.

The first pic shows all the components ready to be assembled.

The handle reattached to the basket.

I attached a 16" pizza pan as an ash catcher.

It's almost too purty to burn, isn't it?

My helper (youngest son) is coming to visit this weekend. We will begin working on the barrel itself on Friday. I will continue to post pics as I work on the project so stay tuned.
