    Ok, the only thing that I could even possibly try to find wrong is the translation of spelling certain words, but grammatical errors are not considered part of the instructable, ... so I give this entrepreneur an A+ for working with the ingenuity for creating! A very large part of this is reusing/ repurposing/recycling a mixture of used components from throwaway items you can probably find in any city alley, ... another A+ is given for that as well, ... & finally, a 3rd A+ is warranted to craft the advantage of being able to enjoy, quite literally, the fruits of the author's labors, ...

A couple slices of raw onion rings can also flavor your tater's whether you fry them bake, or grill them, one of my favorites in the summer, is to grill them as stated above, but adding sliced onions, sliced, & diced green peppers, mushrooms, small button, whole, sliced or in pieces, add a tbs of butter to the mix, salt & pepper to taste, wrap it up in a foil envelope, & rotate in different positions to avoid scorching the food to the tinfoil, ... After approximately 45 minutes remove your "envelope", open one end & test for doneness, & when ready serve it up with fresh grilled corn on the cob, burgers/steak/brats/ porkchops, or whatever type of main meat dish you desire, as it goes great with all or any single selection of the aforementioned, grilling fish fillets this way is another great way to enjoy a great summer meal, ...
