"Winch" Setup for Fire Basket/Dual Purpose

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So FINALLY   sausage.gif  after delays and lack of "discretionary" funds and a little procrastination...I am starting the build.

 

Not getting too far out of the norm, but am thinking one major mod/improvement/debalce.

 

I am thinking I want to use this as smoker and grill thus want movable basket. I know I could add a set of eyelet hooks to "hang" the fire basket on. i think I am going to "cable" it with thin steel cable and a small hand winch to crank it up and down as needed.

 

Sounds like I'm creating a lot of work, but looking for opinions. Tried it? Better Idea? stay away from dual purpose smoker/family grill?

 

Thoughts, ideas and quips welcome. Thanks

I put my fire basket up on a higher rack for grilling.  I just like the K.I.S.S. method (Keep It Simple Stupid) . It will reach 600* at the lid on mine.
