Fine lookin ribs, nice amount a meat on them too! Bet those were mighty tastey!
Great mods, did you make the second shelf yourself or have it made and where can a guy get expanded metal in small quanties
Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate it!
I made the second shelf myself. I like working with metal, especially welding. The expanded metal was from a previous project.
I usually get my metal from a local steel supplier, but for this project, I did buy the 1" angle and 1/2" wheel axles from my local Lowe's. They have expanded metal also. Be aware that the cost goes way up for small steel quantities though.
The ribs are "beefy" ribs supplied by Tim's Specialty Meats, on Governor's Drive, in Huntsville, AL. It's the only place I've found that has these type ribs with a lot of meat on the bones vs the "all bone - no meat" variety at the local Kroger/Safeway/Publix/Walmart stores.
