I haven't seen this yet and I've read this entire thread three times.
You're right, I have no life!
Anyway, thought I'd share with ya. I have since put a pail bail on it,
easy to remove. 3/4"expanded on the bottom, 1/2" expanded on the sides.
I will get one of those cheap $8.00 grills from Academy
and affix it to the bottom of the box if it will fit.
That bottom opening idea sounds good in theory but it is a PIA.
PS: Thanks Norco and others for all of your suggestions.
