Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Materials
You will need:
an old Gas Grill
Drill for making vent hole
Step 2: Disassemble the Gas Components
In this step you need to take all the Gas parts off of the old grill.
You don't want any thing left that could possibly cause an explosion. (This means remove the propane cylinder!)
Step 3: Make a Vent
You need to make two vent holes in the lid. Make them about the size of a quarter. We put one on each side of the lid. If you want to smoke the meat you will need to cover the holes. (Wad up alumunium foil and stuff in holes or find a bolt that is the same size of hole to block off the hole.)
Step 4: Add Charcoal
Now that you have taken off all the gas parts you can lift the grill rack and put in the charcoal or wood chips.
Step 5: Light It Up
Light the charcoal and replace the grill rack.
Step 6: Add Meat
Add your meat and begin cooking as you normally would with any charcoal grill.
Step 7: Eat
Now that the food is cooked; eat and enjoy!
