Plenty of good ideas presented thus far for the charcoal basket mod, but one thing I noticed that has kinda thrown me for a loop, the previous owner of this fine CG smoker did not install the grate holders, (i.e rails) across the inside of the firebox, so there is nothing really to suspend any baskets etc from the ash container. I have a few ideas, but I wanted to make sure I get the right kind of metal parts to use in the firebox, where temps could exceed 450*. What metals are good and safe to use for firebox mods? Is brass ok, or how about chromed parts? I know galv or zinc plated items = possible medical services required, so... I wanted to know what to ask for when I go to the supply house. Thanks again!
