I think that a piece of thick wall conduit would work as well if not better than the fence post. However, I haven't looked into the price comparisons. Also an idea that I just thought of and would have to put some more thought into precise execution would be to add a top attachment that reaches down to the grill and adds hanging supports from the top to reduce stress on the grill. Just a thought, haven't put to much thought into execution of said idea.

Great Job on this one! Instead of a fence post I used PVC pipe, which is quite a bit cheaper. Also I had a hard time finding the whiskey barrel liner but I don't suggest trying to use anything else. I eventually found one at Menards. A tip for anyone trying to make it portable and not mount it in the ground. I used a small spool that they use for chains at hardware stores and put the PVC pipe in that. It was a bit loose so I used one of the 1/2 couplers to stick in the top of the spool and shove the pipe in that. Very surprisingly sturdy! Thanks! Great basket!
Where did you buy those 3 1/4" hinged locking rings, Nobody seems to know what I'm looking for. Please let me know, I'm working on my own basket. I found the flanges at Grainger, now I just need to find some rings. Thanks Dave

Do you have any office supply stores in your area? Try asking for binder rings, metal book rings or loose leaf rings. I just googled myself silly and all I could find was 3-inch rings. Maybe something like that will work? Good luck!
I'll try Office Depot, I'd been looking at all the hardware stores around here and couldn't find any 3 1/4" Hinged locking rings. I never thought about an office supply store. Thanks Orange Guy, I'll let you know who my basket turns out. Dave
