Introduction: GAS TANK BBQ

Hello my followers :)

As you can seen, my last project is a BBQ from "Gas Tank". I have spend 30 bucks for everything, include cutting disc etc..

İt works very efficient. I have used only wood for cooking although it cooks almost 4 hours.

Tools that I used:

- Two Angle grinder, for cutting and grinding

- Welding Machine

- Protective gloves

- Face protector shield

- Drill

Other Materials

- Gas Tank

- Square stick for grill

- Pipe and elbow pipe

Step 1: Begining of the Story

Gas tank which is we use it for our gas furnace.

Step 2: Cutting Off the Top and Bottom Parts

Step 3:

Step 4: Cut Off the Lid

Step 5: Welded Hinges

Step 6:

Step 7: Decorative Belt

Step 8:

Handle making from remains parts

Step 9:

Leg making from remain part.

Step 10:

Bottom plate for efficient air ventilation.

Step 11:

Grill is two piece, I have made it from 7mm square metal stick

Step 12:

Chimney process..

I have cutted the hole with angle grinder.

Step 13:

Handle making and last stage before painting.

    Güzel olmuş elinize sağlık. Aynı tüplerden 2 adet kullanarak, bende de roket soba yapmayı düşünüyorum.


    Teşekkür ederim. projenizi burada yayınlarsanız incelemekten memnun olurum :)

    Be careful. All barrels are dangerous. Many years ago(as a young, perhaps a bit naive welder) I once used a water barrel(with water in it). as a welding table. Bad idea. As I struck the arc, the top blew off. The material I was welding hit my welding helmet and split it down the middle, fortunately with no damage to my face. The good thing....taught me a safety lesson that I carried with me throughout my 40 year welding career.

    I say again, please be carefull. ALL closed containers are dangerous when cutting, welding, etc. Filling only to where you are cutting is not good enough. If there is an air space, it may be filled with an explosive gas(even oxygen in the air). You must have water running through it, as well as the other precautions mentioned here. Will it explode every time? Perhaps not, but is it worth taking that chance with your life? I think not. Cutting, welding, drilling ANY tank is dangerous. Listen to the experts. Use every precaution, or better yet leave it to the professionals.

    What is the safety procedure that you would recommend? I would like to try this but I'm concerned about the safety of this project.

    Thanks in advance,


    You fill the empty cylinder with water and drain it. The entrapped combustible gases will be displaced totally. Then you can follow the standard procedures for cutting and welding.

    Thanks for your reply, I feel better about attempting it now : )

    Thank you very much. I had already bought the idea, hook, line & sinker and eager to go. But with your caution, hmn, I am thinking,not twice but probaly backing off or I'll just design and give it to a welder. Thanks

    coincido , si no inertizan el cilindro y todavía quedan residuos de gas se puede generar mezcla explosiva y detonar con el consiguiente daño para la persona que realiza la maniobra.
