I have a few Q's on this.
In your experience, is taller & less diameter better or shorter and more diameter?
Is 7 3/4" deep enough for a charcoal basket?
I have a piece of 3/4 expanded metal grating that is 24" x 31".
I can cut it into four 7.75" by 24" pieces and have enough for two baskets 15" in diameter.
I would like to try to get at least 2 baskets out of what I have, but how would you do it?
Well, baskets work a lot better if they have a bottom. If you butt-joined your 4 7.75x24" strips pairwise you would get two 7.75" x 48" strips from which you could roll two 7.75x15-1/4" rings, but that doesn't get you basket bottoms.
I know it's obvious, but it had to be said .. :-)
