Damn, that is some badass craftsmanship. Definitely very fitting.

SSuperchargedEi: actually, no it wouldn't have. I'm not too familiar with kegs, but I don't believe they would hold up to the temp very well. You may have had some melting issues or just not real good happenings with it. Plus since it was probably cut with a torch [was it not?] that wouldn't make for the greatest seal. However, the design would be good for a BBQ, but maybe not with a keg. An 80 gallon oil drum.. now that is another story.

It was cut with a sawzall, that went thru 5 blades to do it. It'* all aluminim so it would probably melt, or at least warp pretty good, if it were a grill. The lines on it aren't perfectly straight, but they do the job. The keg warped some while cuting since it has spent most of it'* life under pressure.
