Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need:
an old Gas Grill
Charcoal
Maybe Pliers
Drill for making vent hole

Step 2: Disassemble the gas components

In this step you need to take all the Gas parts off of the old grill.
You don't want any thing left that could possibly cause an explosion. (This means remove the propane cylinder!)

Step 3: Make a vent

You need to make two vent holes in the lid. Make them about the size of a quarter. We put one on each side of the lid. If you want to smoke the meat you will need to cover the holes. (Wad up alumunium foil and stuff in holes or find a bolt that is the same size of hole to block off the hole.)

Step 4: Add Charcoal
