You got a 4-1/2" grinder?

No... maybe its time to invest in one of those. If I'm going to buy one for "every day" use, is a 4-1/2 the most common standard?

Thanks, SVonhof. I'll check that out when I head in this afternoon. I hope I can bend that stuff with a pair of pliers. Cutting it with a hacksaw is going to be a pain. Oh well. It'll be fun Very Happy

I would avoid the usage of anything galvanized that comes in contact with flame. Noxious and possibly toxic vapors are produced and that's definitely not good eats.

Could I get away with using ...

Thanks for the feedback and advice, SoEzzy. I'll have to look into getting or making a basket like that. But for the record, you're in the camp of just burning wood by itself if you have access to i ...
