This is my first instructable. here's the story behind it..:)I was in Ireland for the summer and to be honest we don't get a lot of sun so when a heat wave hit and temperatures soared to 30 degrees we nearly died( along with burnt). During this two weeks of heaven I decided I wanted a barbecue so I set about making one. I was going to make one out of an old oil drum but thought it would be cool to make it out of a beer keg. not only would a beer keg barbecue look cool it would also be an awesome story to tell and worked pretty well as a BBQ and since I haven't a clue how to weld I wanted something that was easily constructible and could be taken apart and put back together.. I named this barbeque the BEERBECUE just encase your wondering, I just thought it was a good name.:) After the materials had been gathered it took me the weekend to build the whole thing.:)
Step 1: Safety
So because you will more than likely be using saws and drills safety is a must. I used a balaclava(couldn't find my mask), gloves, and goggles to protect myself from the sparks and sharp edges of the metal after it was cut. I cannot stress this enough safety is important. also watch the sparks trousers can be surprisingly flammable.
