Due to connections and profession, it would be fairly easy for me to have a fire grate made out of SS for little or no cost.
Given my current grate is cracked
, I am contemplating doing just that.
Now some questions, obviously the SS would have to be a certain thickness just to work mechanically at the heat engaged. Also it would have to be acid resistant (so a higher grade SS) as somewhere in the process of fire and smoke, you will engage H2SO4 and H2SO3.
Now as far as warpage, would I be better of going as thin as possible (like the turbo grade) or go beefy 3/8 or so?
