OK, so I don't have a metal working shop in my garage so I had worked it out with a friend to cut some expanded metal for me to use as a charcoal basket. I went to the local Home Depot and they were out of the smaller size I was looking for. As I was wandering around filling the rest of my shopping list, I came across the gutter grates used to cover the drain end of gutters. It was a small piece of bendable metal grate that was almost perfectly sized for my basket. As a bonus, it has two clips on the bottom designed to attach to the gutter as a hinge, but works perfectly to secure the metal to the factory charcoal basket. I had to cut nothing, but I will trim it later so I can have a little access through the door. Total cost...$1.96. These pictures were incidental to a smoke I just did, but you get the idea.
