I was looking at a few a gas bottle stoves which inspired this, basically it’s a log burner with the lid closed, the butterfly valve in the snout is to control the heat, with the lid open it’s a BBQ fuelled by charcoal, it's not quite finished yet but its only a grill and a ash tray required to finish it and also a flue if want to use it as a log burner But thought I'd share it

Step 1: Step 1
Empty the gas bottle, cut the handle and bottom off, cut the ring you get from the bottom in half then weld the two halves on for the legs, cut a desired size shape (doesn't have to be a square) out of the front and a section out of the top, I think I cut it about half way round about 30mm from the curves on each end, then add hinges
Step 2: Step 2
Add the handle to the lid for the BBQ and the facial features, I used washers for the eyes, two short lengths of scaffold pole with a bit of sheet steel cut to size for the nostrils which will also adjust the heat when its used as a log burner and the ears were cut from the gas bottle handle, I've also used a gate latch to hold the door closed
Step 3: Step 3
for step 3 I lit a good fire (it took 2) in it to burn the blue paint off before I could spray it with proper barbeque paint,
I will add more steps as I do them
Step 4: Spray Paint
Spray paint it, make sure you use the correct BBQ paint
I will add this as soon as I do it
