Default Charcoal Basket Question

I am interested in having a welded charcoal basket made for my Oklahoma Joe Longhorn. Does anyone know a welder who makes these? I am located in metro Atlanta, GA but am willing to pay reasonable shipping charges. Would like to try someone other than Horizon.

The basket doesn't need to be welded. Get some expanded metal, cut and bend to form a square basket and wire it together using non-galvanized baling wire.

Fold up a cardboard box the size you want the basket lay it out flat measure the X&Y axis get some expando that is close to the dimensions lay your cardboard template on the metal mark it out make the bends tie it together with a few hog rings Done. Or are you the I fix things with my Checkbook type?
