That's a good idea too! I did go ahead and order stainless zip ties off of ebay.

Has anyone ever used threaded plated steel rods as the handle? I found them in the same spot as expandable steel. I assume the plated rods are safe for use? (better to be paranoid than dead)

I think everyone is getting a little OCD concerning the use of a small amount of plated metal, The temps would have to be very high to oxidize the plating, and when and if it does, it's gone. vaporized. You injest far more zinc in your body through lotions and vitamins. Everything in moderation...

Here's my "no weld basket"



I used the bottom of an El-Cheapo charcoal grill as the ash pan, an old grate from a 22.5" donor and 12" steel wire shelving cut down with bolt cutters.

I initially used the brackets from the Cheapo grill to hold the basked up and to make legs for the whole thing, but they were too flimsy and put the bottom of the basket too high up. I replaced them with carriage bolts after this pic was taken. The paint on the wire shelving burned right off after a good hot burn. All I had to do was basically just brush the paint off the wires and it was good to go.

An el-cheapo pizza pan bolted under the feet works well for me.

My ash pan sits right on the bottom of the drum, I can put my hand on the bottom during a cook and it's just warm.
