Hey guys,
Wanted to share my grill build with ya. Finished up this fire pit last year but summer rolled around and needed a bbq grill to go with the pit.





Some build pics:
Some expanded I got at the scrap yard, plasma cutting to size


Might as well practice some tig weaving on the frame:


many beers later.. wala:


On to the frame.
Now I know a lot of people have told me I need to do some kind of height adjustment.. which I might in the future but so far I found that building a grill that slids over the pit actually lets you control the heat pretty well.

Just to add to the pit, I needed a coal shelf. I totally ran out of expanded the night before we I scheduled to fire it up so I rigged this up:


Decided to go with an aluminum frame since its light and it doesnt get that hot.



A lot of beveling and welding later:


heres the coal shelf at work



Heres how we get the coals btw, the put has a drawer that catches them.


Thanks for looking!
