that is going to be the all around Redneck Backyard Cooker. Stand By!
I actually made a modified basket out of expanded metal with two inch angle iron. The point of the angle welded to the bottom of the basket. I was going to weld two small sections of angle iron to the sides of the basket and then use rebar across them to set the basket on top of.
So four 1.5" pieces of angle welded to the side in a v. rebar across the barrel, sitting in the v and then the basket on top, sitting on the rebar.
When you aren't grilling you can just set the basket on the bottom of the barrel, though it may not be enough clearance.....
