    What are folks using as a handle on the top of the basket?

    MIne has a threaded rod across the top. I have a rebar hook I bent to grab it with.

    By any chance would you have a picture of it? I made the basket square with angle iron corners, I put a piece of rear thru 2 of the corners. It makes putting charcoal in the basket difficult.

    I've built several and use the bail (handle) from a five gallon bucket.  Just use pliers to remove the plastic hand grip.
