We buy in bulk and I hate to throw things away. I needed a barbecue pit but did not wa spend a fortune. You can make a couple of these an be as good as the low end pits int he store. Careful there will be some sharp edges that need to be taken care of.

Caveat: Use a container that does not use lead or tin.

Step 1: What's Needed:

What's needed:
1 111 oz can (2 cans if you want a top cover.)
2 coat hangers
1 metal grill cover grill
1 paper clip

Tools:
wire cutters.
Drill for coat hanger holes,
What if you made a hole in the bottom side of the can so you can feed the wood or charcoal threw that opening? Just a thought...this looks good though Thanks...
Just depends on your goals. Charcoal properly placed should handle most meals. less holes means more concentrated heat.It is easy to remove the top grill and add fuel, Most rocket stoves do have a way to feed addional fuel.
We used to carry a couple of these when we went to the races (dirt trackcar) we used long bolts with washers and nuts to make legs, a handful of briquets was enough to cook a couple of burgers (one at a time) 3 or 4 hotdogs grilled nicely on one "grill" they also came in handy on those chilly nights, a small frying pan and pot and your ready to cook almost anything
Cool! If I had it to do over again, I might have sunk the grill a bit lower to have an edge.
reccomendation of fuel?<br>
I do not see why charcoal would not work. Good dry wood should work also. Depends if you are looking for a quick fire or a long one.
ill try both. thanks m8t
here's my comment in full: We used to carry a couple of these when we went to the races (dirt trackcar) we used long bolts with washers and nuts to make legs, a handful of briquets was enough to cook a couple of burgers (one at a time) 3 or 4 hotdogs grilled nicely on one &quot;grill&quot; they also came in handy on those chilly nights, a small frying pan and pot and your ready to cook almost anything
Oh goodness, that is something to consider about the metals. I will check that out with some people I know. If it is a real issue, I may change the container.
Good idea and project, not a very good instructable though. Needs more pictures of the steps and explanations. Also a warning : Look out for Zinc or Tin on the inside of the can, the fumes are toxic and since it will be subject to high temperatures that will cause healthproblems for any users. But .. still a good idea.
