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.
More photos to come
