UVaJester, I used smaller and thinner stuff on my first build and it did ok, only reasoning I can see is helping prevent ash buildup. Try what you got, might have to give it a shake half way through the smoke. Just take the food out first!

UV you don't have to close everything up just close the intake and exhaust so there's no draft to carry the ash.

So i am having some trouble bending my expanded metal into a cirlce to match my webber grate, i have it bent about 3/4 of the way but i cant get it to round out towards the ends. My tools are very very limited due to my location for the next month.
I am in need of some suggestions on how to round out the expanded metal to match the webber grate. Any suggestion is great thanks.

You don't have to get it real round- you can work that more once you get it welded or bolted. I bend the ends under my foot. Gloves are recommended!

You can put a square basket in a round drum!

I used 4 pieces of rebar wire to attach mine to the grate,and also to the ash pan. I saw someone use copper wire also. If you didn't get your basket formed yet just lay it flat on the floor (use gloves)and bring the ends up so you can put a bolt thru to hold it together. Then put your other bolts tru(I used 3)then form it (push on it)if it's not as round as you want it.
