This is how to make a nice big firebowl for a BBQ really fast in the workshop..

Step 1: The Bowl

Get a nice top of a boiler.. (sometimes scrapyards have them lying around).
This time I bought one, was about 100€.
800mm in diameter and 6mm thickness

I need to know how to make the tripod grill thing please help!!!!!
Awesome. That must have been an incredible cup of coffee!
hey have u given the thought of putting copper tubing on the bottom to heat water up as well.
That was an magnificent piece of work. I, however, think I will stick with wood in my workshop. I was exhausted just following your progress. Did you know that you can purchase a 22" Webber in the UK for that 140 Euros?
yes but, itill b around 1- 3 mm in thickness vs. 1 cm or so of the boiler. plus u can load the boiler top much more the thin tin u get. plus the heat retention will be higher.
Great instructable! Recommend insulated handles such as a wood dowel for safety's sake. I would weld threaded receptacle onto the grill for the legs to screw into. Makes it portable and you can replace a bent leg if needed.
good idea to make it more portable! insulated handles also.. <br>but those legs won't bend that easily ;)
Awesome. I'd like to see more pics of that welding table too! Did you build that?
thx! no, the welding table is not selfmade. worked for years now with a regular self-built table but my usual job requires much more precision so this is the weapon of choice: <br>http://www.siegmund-group.com/de/Schweisstische,3.php <br>there`s no better table. :) <br> <br>
That welding table and its tools would worth an instructable. Especially if it was made by you
Could you imagine drilling all of those holes though!
Msny build &quot;fire pit&quot; by using damaged beyond repair disks fro farm one ways or disk harrows. This project here is a good idea to file into one's mind...
Be sure to thoroughly clean the bowl. There is no telling what has been in an industrial bolier, so be careful. Scrubbing with an acid, then a base, and then several rinses should do it.
I love the way it looks - great work!
thx <br>
so nice !!
