Instructables
Here is my little, tiny, shiny BBQ!  In all honesty, I wanted one that would work.  I still have yet to formulate a concocted BBQ grill with such a small stature.  This cute little thing is for looks, I learned that the hard way.  The solder melted as soon as the flame hit it and the stupid toothpicks took me an hour to light. LOL.  I still can't get over the fact that I was unable to light WOOD with FIRE.  Baffled.  

If you have kids, or if you do crafts with miniatures, here is a cute grill for you to make!  All you need is :

A Monster Can
Some thin wire
Solder
Soldering Iron
Box Cutter
Scissors
Pliers
E6000 glue
Toothpick

Well, actually, this was MY first step and I built the BBQ around the wire grill.  That means - I lucked out 1 million percent, when I cut up the monster can and saw that it fit.  You, on the other hand, can plan ahead!  Measure the can and do your figuring out of scale for your mini grill.

Cut the wires to size and cut extra, just in case.  Soldering will be difficult because the heat will melt the joints that you've already made.  But after the 1st few bars, you'll get the hang of it.  :)

Once your grill is decked out, take some pliers and cut the excess strands off.  You can sand it smooth or use a nail file to take down the rough edges after you're done with it.  For mine, I added 2 cute little handles.

Try high temperature solder and put rubbing alcohol in a tin foil cup or something and light that, be careful it is true that the flame is almost invisible, wood doesn't really burn good in such small quantities, unless you use lighternaught, but you can't cook over that.
I've made plenty of tiny BBQs just never as cute as that one.

Nice Ible

I didn't see any holes in the bottom of the grill for air, that could be why it was difficult to lite teh wood, this would be a really cute gift for a grilling fanatic !
