Introduction: Gas Bottle Ball Grill

About: Hi, my name is John. My hobby is to solve problems from other people and creating nice and functional stuff out of trash. I'm living in Germany so excuse my not so fluent English (some technical terms are ha...

I got handed over a old gas bottle from a friend. I noticed that this is not a returnable bottle, so what to do with it.

Of course, I've build a ball grill, to lean welding again.

Step 1: Splitting Up the Bottle and Drill Some Holes

Make sure that the bottle is absolutely empty, you will learn that quickly.

With a grinder, cut open thebottle in a high you prefer.

Also drill holes in the bottom to increase the ventilation.

Step 2: ​Add a Base and a Coal Tray

For even better ventilation of the coal, I added a tray, build out of a speaker grid, which rest on the base, build out of a threaded rod. To fix the rod to the bottle, I've welded a nut to the bottom and drilled a hole in the bottle.

Step 3: Grill Rack

As I mentioned, I wanted to train my welding skills. It looks nasty but works well.

    Thanks, I always try to fulfil the KIS (Keep it simple) principle. Also I'm trying to reuse as much as possible.
