Grilling Bowl charcoal basketHubby was in MN for a couple of days and came across a Charmglow SS Grilling Bowl that he thought would make a good charcoal basket for my Brinkmann Gourmet Charcoal smoker. He picked two of them up for me. They measure 11" wide at the top of the bowl without the handles, 13 1/2" with the handles, about 3" deep and about 8 1/2" across the bottom.
After talking with Mikey about it, he suggested putting legs on it. The trial run determined that there wasn't enough airflow on the sides for the charoal to remain lit. With more guidance from Mikey, I had hubby drill holes in the side of the bowl 1" apart in alternating rows.
That did the trick. The basket now works great, fits nicely in the smoker and is very easy to use.
