    Goofy projects using the same item.

    Got a bunch of these stainless steel wire racks a while ago and stashed them as I couldn't figure out a use for them. They are 10 1/4" x 10 1/4" and have feet and a handle.

    After a while, I found a use for them.

    1 - Rack to smoke baby back ribs. Cut off the feet and handle and welded 1/4" ss tubing to the edges. The racks slide into another one which has ss rods to hold them vertically.

    2 - Turkey fryer basket. Tacked 4 of them together and rolled them into a cylinder.
    Used another for the bottom with corners trimmed to fit my 5 gallon ss fryer pot.

    3 - Another basket (used 2 racks for cylinder and one for bottom) to fry other stuff in a smaller pot so I don't need to use 5 gallons of oil each time.

    4 - Crab trap - won't rust although it is a bit small.

    Would love some other ideas for uses as there are just so many friends I can give cake cooling racks to as gifts.

    Have used the fryer basket several times for deep frying turkeys and it works well.
    Burner is from a roofing torch as I found the regular turkey fryer burner was not providing enough heat to do the job.

      I need a basket for my turkey frying pot so I can use it to boil Crawdads this spring. How did you luck out and score these racks? Looks like you are finding a good use for them.

        Bistineau,

        These racks came in a pile of stuff I got from a pet food store which was moving to a new location and selling stuff cheap.
        Also got a bunch of these stainless steel lids.
        3 1/2" OD with a 2" hole.
        So far I haven't come up with a use for them.
        Sure could use some ideas.

            Probably because he mentioned he got them from a pet food store.
