New post Lil Smokey touched my weiner.
Allow me to introduce you to my BBQ grill..... 'lil smokey

Check out his baby photo..... look at him, what a cute little thing he was, still blue and full of hope and a love for life. :love6: 'lil smokey, for those who don't recognize him, is an empty 30lb R134 Freon canister.

And like most tasks I undertake, this adventure (as always) starts on my dining room table.

Image

And here is 'lil smokey after he had been sawed in half. (mucho thanko to Jeff and his mad jig-saw skills) :thumbsup:

Image

The canister, being that it was originally designed to carry freon, not brisket, had this pesky valve at the bottom that was keeping my grill from sitting correctly on it's little feets.

Image

A hacksaw, a bit of swearing, and a few minutes later......

Image

During project 'lil smokey, I would also be employing this aluminum flashing I purchased at Home Depot for $5.

Image

Check out the cool gold coating on one side, very much like the Apollo space program. And if it's good enough for our astronauts it's good enough for me! :thumbsup:

Image

I would be using the flashing to make a lip so the top and bottom half of the canister would fit snugly, and also a second lip for the grill to rest on. The first thing to do was drill 8 equi-distant holes around the perimeter of the lower half of lil smokey.

Note the change in scenery. Project lil smokey had moved from my dining room table to my place of work. :violent1:

Image

I then cut out a 1.5 inch strip of flashing and drilled a matching set of 8 holes for the machine screws to fasten to. :-)

Image

Like so. You will notice in this photo how the flashing had a non-rolled upper edge.

Image

This made it difficult to get the upper and lower halves of the canister to fit together unless you kind of dicked with them a bit. And being as I figured I didn't want to try and tinker with the lid when it was 400 degrees..... something had to be done! :\

So I removed the blade from a can opener we had lying around work and used it as a crimping tool! :thumbsup:

Image

And the results...... I'm a genius!!!!! :thumbsup:

Image

Lil smokey was starting to come together!

Image

(intermission)

This is what happens when you leave your digital camera lying around work and then go to lunch.

Image
Image

(end intermission)

I then made a thinner 3/4 inch strip of flashing and attached it on top of the first "ring o flashing"... like so.....

Image

See how pretty the grill sits?

Image

I then drilled three holes in the top of the canister (two small, one mega) for the handle, thermometer, and vent.

Image

I found this vent in the roofing section of home depot, I don't know what it's actually supposed to be used for, but it looks damn fine where it's at! And as a bonus it always tell me which was is up! :thumbsup:

Image

I then cut four 1/2 inch holes into the bottom for ventilation.

Image

And cut a smaller grill for the bottom so the coals would have a happy place to live.

Image

And then it was time for some paint!!!!! My lovely assistant :mrgreen: (see intermission) roughly sanded down the blue/aqua paint.

Image

And then primer!

Image

And then roughly 2-3 coats of black. But look at the results ladies and gentlemen!!!!

Image

OOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH

Image

AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

Image

Lil Smokey even comes with his very own "no slip" feets! :-)

Image

But what good is a grill (even one as good looking as 'lil smokey) unless it perform with the best of them?

Image

Well it was time for 'lil smokey to earn its keep. Burn baby burn!!!! :eek:

Image

After the coals had lit I was freaking amazed at how well 'lil smokey would hold onto heat.

Image

Look at 'lil smokey take those weiners like a champ! Seven at a time!!!! :eek:

Image

And how where they?????? Delicious I tell you!!!!!! :mrgreen:

Image

Check out this photo.... is it the heimlich? or violent prison style anal-rape? You be the judge. :thumbsup:

Image

Keep on the lookout for "lil smokey takes on chicken" and perhaps "lil smokey and the woman that loved him"

Very cool indeed! That is the best federal violation of improper disposal I have ever seen. No wonder my boss asked me to personally to destroy those things. On a side note BBQ pits like that are on sale at Heb this weekend for 11 bucks. :thumbsup:

No improper disposal. The canister clearly states "do not refill" As a matter of fact, I guaranteed that the container could not be refilled! (expect with food which I don't think is what they had in mind.) :mrgreen:

11 dollars!!! :eek: Yeah, but anyone with 11 dollars can have one of those...... :thumbsup:

i got a cooler story about how i got mine. So there i was about to sign the papers for my 2005 Colorado when the salesman said " hey i will even throw in a grill once you get done signing the paper work" My wife and i were like :thumbsup: cool. After we signed the paper work he told me to pull the truck around back and him and one of his buddies would load it up for us. So i backed it around and these 2 guys come out carrying this little grill and put it in the back of my truck! I was livid! So i argued with them and made them throw in the trailer hitch for free :mrgreen: o and i kept the grill.

Very cool project. My only concern would be having a metal handle directly attached to the top of a metal grill with no (discernible) heat insulation...how do you get the top on and off?

It should be fine because of the spring like construction, should dissipate heat well enough not to burn you. That, or protect you hands when you lift it.

Yeah, the handle stays pretty cool actually, after awhile (like and hour) It heats up and I have to use a potholder. But it's not too bad. :thumbsup:
