Introduction: Babe-BQ

About: I work as a renderer in the day but my brain only starts working at night when I get in the shed

I was looking at a few a gas bottle stoves which inspired this, basically it’s a log burner with the lid closed, the butterfly valve in the snout is to control the heat, with the lid open it’s a BBQ fuelled by charcoal, it's not quite finished yet but its only a grill and a ash tray required to finish it and also a flue if want to use it as a log burner But thought I'd share it

Step 1: Step 1

Empty the gas bottle, cut the handle and bottom off, cut the ring you get from the bottom in half then weld the two halves on for the legs, cut a desired size shape (doesn't have to be a square) out of the front and a section out of the top, I think I cut it about half way round about 30mm from the curves on each end, then add hinges

Step 2: Step 2

Add the handle to the lid for the BBQ and the facial features, I used washers for the eyes, two short lengths of scaffold pole with a bit of sheet steel cut to size for the nostrils which will also adjust the heat when its used as a log burner and the ears were cut from the gas bottle handle, I've also used a gate latch to hold the door closed

Step 3: Step 3

for step 3 I lit a good fire (it took 2) in it to burn the blue paint off before I could spray it with proper barbeque paint, 

I will add more steps as I do them


Step 4: Spray Paint

Spray paint it, make sure you use the correct BBQ paint

Step 5:

I will add this as soon as I do it

    Great job. I like the piggy! Did you give the other end a tail?

    hm...very nice! good work

    love it!

    I'd be careful and purge the tank with co2 before cutting into it.

    Good point, I think there will be many different ways of emptying the tank, i forgot to mention before I did any cutting, I filled the tank with water to eradicate any remaining gas,
