So continued on UDS builds. Took lid I cut out and cut out a circle.
Used it to stiffen ash pan.
Bolted square fence post plate on and welded 1/2 pipe to it. Also welded 1 1/4" heavy washer to charcoal grate (to be basket) and cut out center
Will use to lift out to empty ash and lower in full charcaol basket.
Now here is an added bonus.
I took a 14" wok and welded a 1/2" stud to bottom
Stud slips into pipe.
Why you ask? Drip pan/water pan/heat diffuser, removable.
