    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!

    Hard to tell but there is a tomahawk somewhere in there:

    You definitely have 'engineering", welding and other needed skills.
