Default My Latest Project

Here is what I have spent a few days working on when I had some free time. A couple guys in the chatroom got me started in the right direction. It'* been a goal of mine for a while, just never had the time or resources to complete it. But it is done now.
Step 1- Acquire a keg:

Steps 2-99: Build the grill (not pictured)
Step 3: Have the most badass grill around:


Step 4: Christen it with a hot dog. Invite your bros over and have a cookout.


Step 5: Enjoy

The rundown: Anheuser-Busch keg. Legs machined for 3/4" stainless steel stock, tapered at one end, drilled and tapped and threaded at the other. Hinges, handle. Temperature gauge really works, off a real grill. Runs on charcoal that sits on a couple old hibachi grates I had. Food is on a grill grate I cut down to fit. Lemme know if you like it.

Or you can just buy a slightly smaller gas grill at Wally world for 30 bucks and get the kegger to go with the BBQ

Food cooked with charcoal makes me sick to my stomach. But that is a nice looking grill you've made for yourself.
