Picked up the charcoal basket and grill from the ironworks today - stainless steel and looking good. The basket at 18" diameter is probably too big, but I think I can make it work.
Tomorrow: cleaning out the drum with the pressure hose, spray painting (primer and mat black high temp with gold decals if I get artistic) and the inauguration cook: chicken thighs for lunch with some special Brazil-style rub, and pulled pork and Boston Beans for dinner. Can't wait!
I just need the legs for the basket and a 1" bolt to secure the main ball valve, and will try the silicone oven seal for the lid.
