    The pocket grill

    I saw this Instructable today while shopping for backpacking grills (which are around $100USD for good ones) and knew I had stumbled upon a gem. Within 30 minutes I had sourced my spokes from a local bicycle repair shop and was on my way. Took about 30 minutes to make, and as you can see, it does quite well - it even holds a gallon of milk. I did make a couple of changes from the original poster though - I didn't cut the spokes. Instead, I made the holes slightly larger and then used their extra girth once in and rotated to help hold them in place. I also positioned the end caps such that once pressed down onto the grill while in use, it not only stored the end caps, but also ensures the end tines cannot come loose (end cap on one side, retaining screw on the other). Thank you SO ...
