I made one with one of those metal tins that cookies come in. Rigged up some bolts for legs, poked some holes around the base and threw some charcoal in. I used the inside of the lid as my cooking surface.

OK. The cookie tin was a circular Royal Dansk cookie tin. It was about 4 inches deep and had a lid. For the little legs, I used 4 2" screws and 8 nuts so it would stay off the ground (but I'm sure there are a million ways to rig it). Around the bottom rim on the side of the tin, I poked holes - enough for the charcoal to get air and burn well. I took the paint off the lid of the tin and poked some holes around the edge so juices would drip down inside. It fit on perfectly and that's what I cooked on. I actually used this quite a few times while tailgating at concerts. I had a nice grill stolen once, so I don't bring anything I'll miss anymore.
