Default A present from Dave Klose

Got a present from Mr Klose yesterday. Helped him out with some techno-weenie stuff and he sent me a thankyou gift for my Backyard Chef.

6 sets of stainless steal ribracks and a Klose design Charcoal basket.

This basket runs the charcoal in an "S". I'll call him later to get the details, but i guess ya just fill the channels and then light the very end with a torch or hots coals. Dimensions are 16X14x9, not sure if it fits the Bandera. Weight is 68 lbs. Solid 3/8" plate on all 4 sides, and 3/8 or 1/2" angle around all the edges. Has doubled layer of super heavy gauge expanded steel in the bottom(not the HD stuff we use, but the stuff he uses in his fireboxes). Not sure the $$$ he sells these for, will find out.

Will mostly likley give it the trial run at B2.

Still gonna try Al's in the bandera as soon as the divider arrives. Got another eyeround waiting for it.

OOOH, AHHH!! Solid.

Looks like Al's on the right path with the double wall divider.

Really looking forward to breaking everything in at B2 :D

That basket is a monster. So the BYC firebox is tall enough that Klose doesn't require expanded metal on the basket's sides? Can you add fuel without lifting the firebox lid? What are the dimensions on those rib racks?

Nice reward, Phil.

Phil,
How much did DK space between the plates? From the picture, it looks like an inch or so.

racks are 9" wide, 10.5 long at the base, but because they are at an angle, they are a total of 12" long. So 12x9.

The airpace between the plates is exactly 1 inch, and the plate is 1/4 inch steel.

Im concerned that since Al needed a full inch to clear the rebar in his double divider that it may be too much and stop ignition of the coals instead of just slowing it. Think half inch to 5/8 would be sufficent. Testing again...

Can we get a shot of it mid burn 1/2 way through. Also let me see if I under stand the hole basket thing hear. You start off with wood, for the first few hours then make the switch to lump. i.e. I know you are still using wood in the process but how and when?

Thanks

The whole purpose of the basket is to extend burn times to let you sleep or run attended for a bit. You can use some wood chunks mixed in with the charcoal to get smoke if you like. Its up to you how you use it. Your can start with it from the beginning, or go with wood at the beginning and then switch to he basket.. however you need. But the basket can still give you smoke with chunks if you use it from the start.

I haven't had luck using lump in a basket thought, they are really best used with kingsford.

Phil,

how do you get the air to circulate enough to keep this basket lit? i can see where there seems to be a "double" grate at the bottom...is this enough to keep it off the floor of the firebox somehow? i guess if i wanted one of these for wood burning, i wouldn't need the spacers/dividers right?

this sits on the firegrate in the firebox. not on the firebox floor. The grate is 2 layers of 9 gauge expanded steel welded to 2 - 2 inch flats of steel standing on edge. that grate is on rails, so its about 5-6 inchs off the floor.

I made my dividers removable so that wood logs could be used also. My divider will fit between any of the rebars for adjusting size to match what heat is needed for what you are cooking. Rebar spacing of 1/2 inch gives a long burn time for each coal, rather than falling through expanded metal too soon.

Wonder how much it will cost to ship @ 68lbs? UPS has 70lbs weight limit!

My basket and single divider shipped to Phil, UPS billable weight = $29.00
and dual divider was 10lb billable weight = $11.22

Air gap is 13/16 between my plates. If it stops self lighting, I have a fix in mind.....awaiting your long burn test results.
