1. How long is the handle you have on there? I am guessing short enough to not bother the cooking grate once placed inside the drum.
2. This wqill be more for those that weld...unless Tig welding and using specific stainless to cold rolled filler rod...how would you weld the expanded metal basket to the stainless charcoal grate?
Nice job man. way to make due with what you have!! I bet it works great!
What are your dimensions on it?
Hmmm..just realized that is 3 questions!
