I believe Lowes and Menards have it, ask for or look in the sheet metal area. It's a small 10 foot wide area in the hardware section and the pieces are in cardboard sleeves. You know you're in the right area if they have ornamental/stamped brass, copper and aluminum sheets as well as sections of various lengths of extruded aluminum shapes.

Also, looks like your charcoal basket sits in/on some sort of pan to catch the ashes. What are you using for that/where did you get it?

Thanks for the help.
I got the expanded metal from Home Depot. It was in hardware and it came in a 24"x24" piece. As far as the ash pan I used one of those disposable bbq's you see in the food store or walmart.

It's a whole lot cheaper if you can find a steel distributor to get your expanded metal from. I'm lucky in that we have an outlet for Alro metals nearby that sells drops. One place to check is metalsdepot.com. They sell small quantities of all sorts of metals.

Nice lookin' pit, there, Joe. Lookin' forward to some 'Q pron.

If it was 'Born' , then it must have a name, what you want a child running around ,smoking and being called something you wouldn't want to hear

Be a good Dad and give it a name.Like ASHLEY, for all the ash you'll be getting when you use herLMAO
