This tiny grill would be very useful if you were out fishing for example, you could catch some little fish and then grill them for lunch! The possibilities are endless..probably
If you match this grill with one of the many hunter/gatherer 'ibles you have yourself a recipe for free tasty food, perfect in this unstable economy :D
Dont click the links yet or you'll forget to read the rest of my sweet 'ible !! :D

Step 1: Materials + Tools
- Coat Hanger
- Altoids tin
- Drill / Dremel
- A few Twigs
- A Vice / Clamp
- A Pencil
Step 2: Cutting the Hanger
If you are using an altoids tin then the rod sections need to be 10 cm long, if you are using any other type of tin then just measure the length and add 5mm so the ends will poke out the sides, this stops them falling down when cooking.
I would recommend making 5 rods but the number is up to you.
Step 3: Sanding the Rods
Just use a file to remove any pointy bits, its pretty simple really :P
Step 4: Drilling the Tin
First of all clamp the tin in your vice, not too tight though or you'll crush it !
Now find a drill bit which is about 1mm thicker than your rods.
Using a pencil mark out where you are going to drill your holes.
Now all you need to do is drill the holes and check the rods fit in, do this for both sides.
Step 5: Finished The BBQ
Step 6: Fuel !
For my fuel i used some sticks from my garden and some paper for better ignition.
To put the fuel in just take out the rods and lay it underneath,
Don't pack it too tight or it wont ignite !............. wow that Rhymes !!!!
Step 7: Sand the Lid
Simple really but it has a nice effect, i was also worried about the design being burnt off by the heat and that wouldn't have looked very nice at all :P
Step 8: Optional Stand
There isn't really a specific design for this, i was just randomly bending the wire when i came up with it :P
Step 9: Packing and Carrying
Step 10: Cooking
Unfortunately the pics aren't great and for some reason i don't have one of it on fire :S
Sorry about that, hopefully ill get some soon !
