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

Enjoy!

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

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

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

yea but what about the flux core stuff?...

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

Wouldn't this be slightly dangerous, cooking food with a soldering iron? If there is still some lead/flux left on the tip it. On wikipedia it says under lead->Health effects: "Lead is a highly poisonous metal (whether inhaled or swallowed), affecting almost every organ and system in the body". Also for the flux it states that it may have adverse health effects.

i can't say its totally safe but the soldering iron isn't touching the food, so i don't think the chemicals would transfer, espiecially if you clean the iron

What about the fumes that come off the soldering iron? When I solder for more than half an hour in an unventilated room, I will get a strong headache from ll the smoke. Probably best would be to put a new tip on the iron but there may be some chemicals on there form the factory. SO heat it up a bit before trying to cook anything with it...
