Ash Catch Basket

Discussion in 'UDS Builds' started by geever, May 15, 2013.

  1. I currently suspend my UDS fire basket using U-Bolts.  I am wanting to add an ash catch tray (using an OLD cake pan from my wife).  I am thinking I can suspend the catch pan using 2 hooks from the fire basket itself.  Does anyone have any advice/concerns about using stainless steel S Hooks for this?

    Thanks.

    I took a spare lid and cut out the middle and then took pliers and bent up the edges.  Now i have a 19 inch pan that covers the bottom very well...i hooked up u-bolt to it so i can grab it with a hook. 

    I'll show you a pic in a short while.

    Here ya go.  I cook with only lump and only have to clean ash out of this pan maybe every 3-4 cooks. There is no need to attach the ash pan to the basket.
