Disposable Beach BBQ Grill

Featured
This is quick, simple, and cheap!

Our beach rules don't allow for open fires. The official rule states, "Fires must be contained in a metal container". This rule is okay with me, I just didn't want to purchase a smaller BBQ grill or pack one down to the beach- so this was my solution.

This is easy to pack in, if your trip to the beach requires some hiking, and leaves no mess behind!

The pan can be slightly folded to fit into a backpack!

Step 1: Materials


Disposable foil roasting pan

Cheap uncoated cookie racks (from the dollar store, or old ones from the kitchen if you don't mind re-purposing them)

Self lighting charcoal (I like match light with fluid on it already)

a lighter or matches

Things to BBQ in a cooler (we made kabobs) What ever you are willing to carry!

Plastic bags for trash and one to wrap up your racks when you are done to keep everything else clean.

Some Drinks

Secluded beach

Got news for you. They sell these in stores.

I wonder if they sell them all over the the world? Are you in the US?
Yeah, Socal. I seem them all the time in the 99cent only stores. The only change I would make to them for easier lighting would be to change the plastic wrap bag that holds the coals to a wax paper so when it comes time to light it you don't have to worry about fluid or how much wind there is. Just light the match, throw it inside the packaging and wait for the white ash.
They sell em' in America and Hawai'i too. Very good idea.
Just an FYI Hawaii is in America, since 1959 :-)

I like the dollar store idea, multiple set ups for $2. ($1 for two racks & $1 for two aluminum lasagna pans.) The prepackaged ones aren't as cost effective.

But most importantly PACK OUT YOUR TRASH!

Good job Friend! this is the only planet we got!

Please make sure to either spread the dangerously hot sand from under the grill or fill the pit with cold sand when you're done.

They are for sale here in Europe, too.
