Hi Davey, I have started a new thread regarding Charcoal Baskets, as we like to try and keep the Roll Call clear of general chat.
So I have a project on at the moment and needed a Charcoal Basket, now I knew I had a small round BBQ, which has a Charcoal Basket, but as these things go, it was too big!!!
So looking around the workshop for something to use.
Gas Cylinder. (Please do research on how to safely cut Gas Cylinders!)
Cut the Cylinder just above the weld, using the weld for guidance.
Left the bottom ring on so it stands well, then drilled 10mm holes around the bottom at about 100mm intervals.
Then I cut two racks from some stainless steel mesh I had, the reason for two as you can see, I have off set them so the holes are smaller and cheap charcoal (small pieces) will not drop through?
Lit some charcoal up in a starter and emptied in to the basket to do a burn in.
Hope this gives you some ideas, if you want a bigger diameter basket, then you could look at a Beer Keg?
