Thoughts? I'm a first time builder and a newbie 'que-er.
Kinda heavy, but don't see why it wouldn't work if it'll fit in the drum. Are you planning on anything around it to contain the coals?

This is a 18" Weber kettle with a chitload of 1/2" holes and the coal grate for all you tidy MOFO's that want the ash can mod!

Of course you'll have to empty it more often if your using Rancher briqs!
