Thread Starter 

To all you metal fabricators....what size expanded metal would you get to make smoker shelves to cook butts or briskets on.....looking at 24" x 24"..thinking about bending front and back down for middle support......I see .035 and then I see #16 or 9.....I know this is thickness...but what would use for cooking grates......THANKS GUYS or GALS.....

3/4 #9 should work perfect for you. will be sturdy and less prone to heat distortion.

just to clarify, you cant just throw a piece of 3/4 9# on the smoker, you still need to weld a frame right?
