Sorry for the thread hijack.
How much are those?

If you don’t weld you can just bolt some angle iron onto a piece of sheet metal.

Congrats!! LSG is top notch.

As for the charcoal basket I'd skip it. I bought one and thought I'd use it but in the last 4 years I've only used it 3 times?? Especially if you have charcoal cookers already. Better off spending it on another upgrade.

Where is that? I'm always interested in good Philly

Congrats on decision

Frank and Andrea's on 4th in Dinkytown. They fly the bread in from Pennsylvania. Sounds crazy, but the bread is actually the key. All the real joints in PA use rolls from the same bakery: Amoroso's. Perfect chew. Perfect bread thickness. My assessment: F&A's is not quite as good as my favorite joint in PA, but it is the first place we've ever been to outside of PA that offers an authentic Philly steak. So even though it's not my all-time favorite, it's on the "real deal" level. And it is very good. And their east coast style pizza-by-the-slice is also good! I recommend getting both :)

I ordered the charcoal basket & ash pan for my LSG 20x42 but now I’m reconsidering the charcoal basket. I think I saw Russ Jones use it in one of his LSG videos for an overnight cook. Now I’m wondering if I’d be better served using my Kamado Joe for an overnight cook.

Congrats on the new LSG, slick looking cooker.
I experimented with a charcoal basket in my offset, built a basket that holds approx 10lbs of lump, it will maintain 300-325 for about 3 hours. If the firebox was made air tight enough to allow full air control it might work for longer cooks.
My process now is to put 2 splits on the outer edge of the rack and fill the center with lump, after the lump is burning good just add a split approx hourly.

I definitely pass on the ash pan.... Make your own as outlined above or borrow my idea as found here....

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...0&postcount=24

I've had 1/4" ash pans before and they're a major pan to work with - especially with a wonky back.

Note: That pan is still working 18 months later.

I bought the ash pan and stopped using it for the same reason (heavy AF). I like the baking sheet idea. Is it just a regular full sized sheet? Aluminum or steel?

Charcoal basket IMO is not necessary and the fire tends to jump the dividers. The ash pan weighs a ton and the ash seems to find its way under it so you are still cleaning out ash from the FB anyway. Cleaning out the FB takes no time at all, if you want an ash pan make one that is tighter fitting and of thinner lighter material.

I bought this oval wash tub from a local hardware store to scrape out FB ash into when I clean out my FB It is just wider than my FB.

I actually haven't been given a delivery date. Before I ordered, they estimated 2-3 weeks.

I buy really thin sheets of aluminum. You can bend them easily to the size you need. Cutting is no issue either. I've had one in use for 4 years. Still looks good. Good advice above about making it fit as tightly as possible.
