Fark! Power tools and alcohol. Been there; Done that. Several times. Just not exactly the same way.

Default That will leave a scar...


Its all fun and games till somebody gets hurt...then it is funny as hell.
I am glad I was able to keep my grip on the grinder(had it in the "locked on" position). It would of beat the chit out of me!

Thanks all,

I just finished a weldless version myself. I used wire to attach the expanded steel to the weber charcoal grate. I also used the wire to attach both ends of the expanded metal together. Norco mentions this technique at the end of this post: http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...1&postcount=86

My wire was galvanized so I torched it with the weed burner to burn off the nasties.

Can't post any pictures right now as I am seasoning, however, once it is done I will post pictures of the basket and my new UDS!

Thanks,
Matt Weber

Default Charcoal basket

I'm right there with you, not a welder insight.

Here is the basket I made this past Saturday for my first drum.



Expanded metal bolted together and wired with copper wire to the bottom grate. The handle is 1/8" x 1 1/8" aluminum that was just waiting for a good use. The ash catcher is the top of a 30 Gal. drum and is bolted to the basket. Easy in and easy out.

Talking Keep It Up Norco....

Yep, I'm cutting up a bunch of old treated landscaping timbers into chunks tomorrow.
Should make for a good mineral addition to the meat.
I draw the line at galvanized hardware. If it isn't stainless, I don't use it.
Will build the conventional basket this time, the old school way.

Nice little drum. It looks ok but take something and scratch it just to double check.

JD, try this. Norco welded this one but you could use wire.
Not a problem.

Looks good from here...is there any rust in there? If so...there is no liner. Like Doc said...see if it'll scratch...if you hit bare metal real easy...there's no liner.

Just a little update.....

11 hrs and still kicking along at 200*

Approx half of a 12" x 12" x 12" basket of WallyWorlds best coal and 3 medium chunks of hickory

I've got a feeling I'm going to love this one and might even add to the stable
