    Thanks,

    The brackets allow fer the bar ta be screwed down which I did cause it's a handy way ta move the smoker around. A feller wouldn't have ta though.

    The brackets er just closet shelf brackets which I bent the rod holders "in" because a the drum bein round so the bar fits right.

    No-no. You field engineered them, which means you "Re-formed" the brackets. Field engineers never "bend" anything.
