    Hindered by a complete lack of artistic skills, in addition to not having access to welding equipment, this is what I made.Expanded metal and old towel rail.

    Scotty - I wouldn't even cook that fish - just a little wasabi and soy sauce for me.

    Bob, those damascus knives are unreal. I'm very envious of your skills on the forge......I'm a basic iron pounder, wish I had that kind of talent.....
    Eddie, that looks good! Have you used it at all yet?
    I noticed that the big sides on the one I made helps with keeping the coals in the sifter, it allows you to shake the chit out of it and really get the coals out of the ash. I use that sifter once a week and I take nothing but powder out to the ash pit. Works like a charm....

    I use it all the time, and it works really well to keep coals out of the ash. Also on those tenuous morning reloads it's useful to concentrate the few remaining coals under the doghouse air. I'd have made the sides bigger but that was the only piece of metal I had left over.
