Charcoal basket

Post by Aksmith42 » April 25th, 2012, 3:34 pm

I m getting ready to make a charcoal basket for my 500 gal rf. I was thinking about putting some 4 inch legs on it so when the ashes fall through the coals can still get air on a long smoke. Does that sound like a good idea?

yes...
actually if you mount rails inside the firebox even with the bottom of the door you can slide the basket out for adding wood to it.
You will see my fire basket in action in this video....

In forum runner, I go to the messages tab at the bottom, then the reply arrow at the top. Then look up the recipient.
