Installed a 17" weber charcoal grate as cooking grate, using 5/16 stainless steel bolts, nuts & acorn nuts. Started up the drum with the weber chimney starter as the fire basket (minus the plastic handle). BBQ'ing a chicken on it right now hot & fast: 340F. Using the 22" weber lid. Installed my weber q temp gauge under the grate as well--drilled the hole while the drum was hot even lol.. and quickly installed it as my hand was getting pretty hot :)
