Mini S'mores Grill

Featured
Picture of Mini S'mores Grill
I have my youngest son to thank for this Instructable. He wanted S'mores, but didn't want the marshmallows put in the microwave. He wanted authentic, toasted-on-an-open-flame S'mores.

When I told him that I did not really want to fire up the grill just to make a couple S'mores, he suggested a mini grill. BRILLIANT!

I found out that I had to drill the large hole first. Otherwise, the board is too fragile to cut a large hole in.

Drill the large hole (2 and 1/2 inch bit) in the center of the cedar and about 1/2 inch away from the outside edge (see pic).

HANDY TIP: Put a scrap board underneath when cutting to prevent the wood from splintering.

Once that hole is drilled, measure about 1/2 inch away from the other side of the whole and cut (see pic).

When that piece is done, drill four holes in the corners with a 1/4 inch drill bit (see pic).

Step 3: Bolt it up and drop in the cup

Insert a bolt into each hole and tighten it there with a nut (see pic).

When that is done, drop the cup in the hole (see pic).

A perfect fit!

Interesting that nobody seems to have suggested using a Tealight in place of the broken toothpicks as your fire source. I always make toasted marshmallows by lighting a small tealight candle in a shot glass.

I have these cups. i was wondering what the hell i would need them for =]. i might use all 4 on one board. I've been roasting marshmallows on a penny stove recently but 4 tiny fire pits should work nicely. i thought about welding them together to make a penny stove lol. I want to see more instructables with these cups lol.

I like mine black and bubbly. Then when i chip away it's gooey and warm inside. Perfect.
ya! catch it on fire, then blow it out. thats the way to go!
That's what i usually do. I'm kind of impatient when it comes to marshmallows.
they are also fun to throw at people while they are on fire, they stick AND burn. Woo-Hoo
home made napalm! Yay!!!
never tried that.......gonna have to now. *grabs marshmallow skewer and immediately begins looking for victims*
Hide your kids! Hide your wife!
i dont tame the time to blow it out i just shove the flameing sugar blob in my mouth =-)
lol
LOL
yum.
I just eat it, black and all. EXTRA IRON!!!!!
lol that black stuff is carbon not iron remember that marshmallows aren't magnetic :)
*blank face* you...you mean that.....that they LIED to me!?!?!?! AHHHHH!
boo urns :(

SWEET! i shaved a candle and placed a fair amount of the shavings in the cup with the toothpicks. it burns much longer and hotter! :)
Great idea! I'm going to have to try this...

 Me and my friend just took a lighter, stuck a marshmellow on a fork, and roasted it with the lighter.

A better fuel would be pure isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol).
It will produce a big flame with that size of opening but the products of the combustion are harmless - carbon dioxide and water vapour.

Take a look at this mini burner:

This is an excellently rendered version of the penny stove. Now I understand how it works. I couldn't with the versions here at Instructables. As the author said, missing pictures.....etc.
siiiicccckkkk!!!!!!

it's spelled K-E-B-A-B-S not K-A-B-O-B-S
 actually, kabob is the correct middle eastern spelling. Americants just like to change stuff.
 Americants? :(
