Step 1: Main Part

For the main grill part I cut out a hole in the top then drilled a small hole on one side of an Altoids can

Step 2: Grill Spokes

The grill spokes I made from an old coat hanger then used aluminum tape to tape them to the inside part of the hole in the Altoids can

Step 3: Propane

The propane is from a lighter I hacked you can learn how to hack one in my profile page thing

Step 4: Burner

The burner is an Altoids mini can with a bunch of holes drilled in the bottom and the top took off and a hole drilled in the side of it then I carefully hot glued it to the bottom of the big Altoids can

Step 5: Propane-burner

To get the propane into the burner I used a tube from one of those big lighters then put a small Lego tube around the nozzle. Then I stuck the not nozzle end onto the nozzle of the hacked lighter then stuck the nozzle end of the tube through the hole in the big Altoids can then stuck it into the small one and to get the propane flowing just press the small button on the lighter

    Heh heh, uuhhh hate to tell you this but it's butane not propane. Propane must be kept under extreme pressure. But really cool build, and I am looking forward to building this
