Finally got around to making a "proper" basket for my drum.
Started with a 8" x 48" piece of expando, bent carefully around a propane tank to form the shape and bolted together....
Used bailing wire to tie it to a Weber kettle charcoal grate.....
Added 3 - 3 1/2"x5/16" carriage bolts with double washers and nuts for feet....
Use a length of thick wire for a handle and you've got a basket capable of 14 hr + burns!
