In-Dorm Solder BBQ





Introduction: In-Dorm Solder BBQ

If you want to make an indoor BBQ but can't make a fire, here's the answer.

An In-Dorm BBQ

i got the idea from the Bitty Q made by Mike Hacks

Step 1: Gather Items

  • soda can
  • coat hanger
  • small hinge
  • 4 small screws and nuts ( 2 not shown)
  • 1 medium screw and nut (not shown)
  • 4 long bolts and nuts

Step 2: Cut Can

  1. Make a line about 2/3 through so that the bottom half is bigger
  2. The edges are rough so cut some off
  3. decide which is the front and bend over a bit
  4. In the end where the iron will be placed (soda can bottom) make cuts and bend in for the iron to rest on

Step 3: Legs

  1. Make 4 holes for the bolts supporting it to go through
  2. put the bolts through and screw on the nut

Step 4: Hinge

  1. mark where the screws will go (on the top and bottom)
  2. put them in, and screw on the nuts (on the top and bottom)
  3. add Medium screw for handle

Step 5: Grill

bend the coat hanger into a similar shape to this to fit on your grill (The king of random has a template for his Bitty Q in his mike hacks)

Step 6: Turn on and Enjoy!

Put your soldering iron in, turn it on, and start Grilling

    cool idea but probably the easiest way to kill urself either by lead poisoning, cancer or a fire

    Heineken keg can just saying

    Another fire hazard. Dripping fat onto a hot soldering iron.

    Today we use lead free solder so lead fumes would not be a problem.

    this build may n may not b practical. amuses me, regardless. i wanna see somethin cooked.

    if u put the tip outside the can, u r less likely to put lead on food. or remove tip while cooking.

    will you now smell burgers everytime you solder? ;)


    Great job ! I'll be cooking without the soldering iron tip just in case

    This is a super cool remix project, but I am skeptic to the grilling performance. Have you successfully cooked anything on this? Your soldering iron is certainly more serious than mine, but I still can't imagine it puts out THAT much heat from a distance. I hope I am wrong though, because like I said, this really is a cool and novel idea :)

    convection heat like say. an oven

    I haven't tried yet but it should work
