DIY Mini Bbq Grill

Introduction: DIY Mini Bbq Grill

About: I love to work with electronics and to build whatever comes to mind.

I have wanted to do a project like this for many years. And I finally got an idea and made it work. So, today I am going to show you how I did it.

Step 1: The Base

To start this project, I began with two large cans. These can be hard to find, and if you can't find any then you could use the largest cans that you find.

Step 2: Cutting

I used my Dremel and a cut off wheel to cut each can in half. Take your time and be careful. When you are done, you should have two cans cut evenly in half.

Step 3: Drilling the Holes

I used three 1/4" nuts and bolts to hold it together, so I drilled three 1/4" holes in the can. I drilled one at the very bottom of both cans, as well as two holes at the top on either side.

Step 4: Put It Together

I put the bolts through the holes from the outside and secured them with nuts on the inside. This will hold the two halves together.

Step 5: The Legs

I used three 11/32" bolts for the legs, with three wing nuts to secure them. I drilled three holes for them, two in front and one in back.

Step 6: Half Way Done

After securing the legs, you're half way through. I added nuts on the ends of the legs for stability.

Step 7: The Grill

I found some thick wire mesh and bent it into a piece that is three layers thick, 3-1/2" wide, and as long as the base. I also bent some into a grill to cook on.

Step 8: The Top

I cut the second can in half and connected it the same as the first with more nuts and bolts. Then I used two 1-1/2" hinges with eight 6/32" nuts and bolts. I drilled the holes in the top and the base with a 5/32"drill bit and attached the hinges.

Step 9: The Handle

Almost done. I found a handle and two matching bolts for it. I drilled the holes with the same 5/32"drill bit and drove the bolts home with a screwdriver.

Step 10: Final Remarks

After putting in the charcoal briquettes, put the grill in place and you are ready to go. Be sure to leave any questions or concerns in the comments.

    Wow, that’s impressive. Of course, it is fast and convenient, but it is unknown how safe it is. Of course, such a grill is not suitable for large companies, that is why my friends bought one large grill for everyone. This grill is quite expensive, we took into account the site https://bestgrill.reviews/built-in-grills with customer reviews of this model. And now already 2 years we are going with friends in nature. I can guarantee the safety of this grill, because children are playing next to it.

    I like it. It has inspired me. I have an old helium tank I could do the same thing to.

    Punch a few holes in the bottom sides, and the top's middle for combustion airflow, but I think you've made a neat little project here, and as already stated, steer clear of plated hardaware and all will be well.

    Do not use galvanized nuts and bolts, the coating could come off and contaminate your food
