I just worry about the gauge of the steel... I know I want to use box just cause I like the look... But I am worried .065 will not be enough.
I used to have a 1/16" thick steel grate with legs that I use when we go camping over the firepit... and for burgers/dogs I dont mind but it feels flimsy... could just be the design tho...
.120 wall is almost twice the price!!!
