Stainless steel CG???

Post by SAFETYHARBORREDNECK » October 30th, 2015, 5:58 am

Gettin ready to buy the metal for my CG on my 80 gal.offset.My machinist friend whom I'll buy it thru,wants to talk me into using stainless steel mesh for the CG,but he has no experience with smokers so was hoping to get some feedback on which type metal might be best.
Stainless or good ol #9x3/4" carbon steel.
Any input would be appreciated.

Personally, I would just go with the cheaper one because the grates won't rust out or burn out. I've cooked a lot in my trailer rig and the grates are just as good as ever. Now if you use a water pan in the smoker. Carbon steel will rust so there is that. I don't.

My thoughts exactly.
If it ain't broke don't fix it.
Use old reliable,so no stainless it is!
