Gas bottle BBQ
« on: September 26, 2015, 12:38:30 PM »

So I wanted to make a BBQ small enough to take car camping, no holes in the bottom to protect the grass
I was going to wait before posting so I could show it in action, but time  ::)  ...

Dumped Gas bottle and a charity shop fruit bowl



Need some sort of jig to do a level cut





Yep that works





Cut some bits off the bottom



Give him a smile  :-\



Chop up the fruit bowl



Added cake rack (might need more work   :think: )



Just need to test it now, probably not much good for backpacking  :D

 :cheers:

Thanks Guys  :salute:
I am hoping it will ‘draw’ when there’s a fire or I will have to drill a few extra holes

I’m sure Smashie and Mr W are reaching for their disc cutters as we speak  :rofl:

Oh wow what a great shape!
As long as the fruit bowl is up high enough you should get enough air flow down there. I only use charcoal. Yum.

I actually tried it and it worked. It would have been better if I had pressed them...they were a bit crumbly. I found people using small presses improvised with caulk guns and PVC tubing.

I've had a couple old bottles waiting for a few years now, just haven't got around to deciding on a design and going for it.

You probably know that you have to fill the bottles with water first to get the gas out  :ahhh

And if you don’t have a disc cutter a jig saw will work as well
I used metal hole cutters and a jigsaw for the smile

Didn’t draw well so make holes in top bigger and add vent below door


Works a bit better, takes ten minutes to boil 1 pint of water  :cheers:

Sorry to hijack. Great concept. I did mine almost the same 20 years ago and still going strong. On the 4th ash grit now. Chimney and legs screw off and fit inside. Had 3 paint jobs in all these years.
