Than a good portable grill?

You can build a capital structure that will not need to install every time it will need. But think about it so much on your lot of free space to waste? If you have come to the conclusion that there are other ideas of buildings worthy of attention, but the barbecue still want something portable piece of metal is what you need.

Mangal – log

No one can say that this amazing grill looks not so aesthetically pleasing, than one that is made of brick

Another unusual grill

This grill happy eyes: it turns out, it is not necessary to hit the size and weight of the fixtures to be place and time

Grill of the future

Let’s see how unusual and, at the same time, this functional grill. And after all, to do such a miracle is not so difficult, but clever

The main advantages of the braziers, made of metal, is obvious:

  • Mobility. No matter whether the design lends itself to dismantling, it can still be removed in the utility room in case of bad weather or at the end of the season. Carefully saved, the grill will serve and delight for a very long time.
  • Fire safety. The material and dimensions of the product allow you to rest easy – even accidental fire during operation unlikely.
  • Low cost. On this side of the question, even to say no, because the difference in the cost of the materials is obvious.
  • The rate of production. With all the technology-based interruptions, to build a piece of brick will have at least a month. The metal structure can be operated immediately.

Proponents of capital grills claim that metal is not so aesthetic. With this you can bet. If the case is entrusted to the master, then at the output we can expect a real masterpiece.

Step-by-step design fabrication

The master, who used to work with metal, doesn’t need tips: he knows how and in what sequence to do everything. We try to help those who makes their first metal. It is important that the first experience was positive, then you will not lost the desire to build and create. And the skills will come with time. Therefore, the first grill that we will make your own hands out of metal, will be extremely simple.

Design dimensions

For an average company of ten skewers of kebab will suffice. If necessary, you can make a second serving, while guests can enjoy first. Kebabs with skewered meat on them should not interfere with each other, but also a large gap between them should not be that the heat from the coals is not wasted. From these considerations we determine the length of the product.

The standard length of the skewer involves placing it on 6-8 pieces of meat. To make the grill wider uncomfortable: small product easier to carry and it does not occupy unnecessary space. The depth of the barbecue is determined by the practical operation of such devices. Meat should not be too far from the coal, well-grilled, but close and it should not be placed: burn.

Looks very nice grill

Looks very nice grill, but think about it: how much coal will have to lay in this box so the kebabs do not have prokoptilas and cooked?

Grill made of metal

In this model, there is nothing superfluous. About this product, but only ten skewers we’re gonna do now

The individual size of the grill one – its height from the earth’s surface. It picked up, based on the growth of cook. Let him who will cook, take a skewer in the arm and keep it parallel to the ground. The back does not bend! The distance from the skewer to the ground and is the desired size. This is usually 80-120 cm from the top of the structure to the surface of the earth.

Billet to box-the basics

Going to do a simple box with legs. A good grill has a secret: the quality of the material and dimensions. The right choice of these two parameters affects the time spent cooking, and the quality of food. Everything else depends on the skill of the cook.

The material will be used sheet metal, 2-3mm thickness. Thinner will last the entire season and burned, and thick will be too heavy to carry. So, mark the sheet size using the gon, in order to avoid distortions:

  • 90х15 cm – 2pcs. (front and back);
  • 90х30 cm – 1 PC. (bottom);
  • 30х15 cm — 2. (side walls).

The cut parts with a grinder. Monitored so that their edges were smooth.

Combustion requires oxygen, and this means that we must ensure the flow of air inside the box-the basics. On the front and rear walls is necessary to drill holes. At a distance of 2 cm from the bottom edge of the product hold the line, noting the line of holes. Drill holes with a diameter of 10-15 mm in increments of 5 cm from each other.

Next up – welding. To make them better with a helper to hold the workpiece in position.

Welding works

Welding first need to carry out together with a partner, which will hold the parts in position; be careful

Fasten the legs of the product

For the legs use either area 25×25 cm, or a metal tube 30mm in diameter. Their length should be individualized based on the growth of the chef, as mentioned above. It turns out that they will 65-105 cm.

The use of tubes gives us the opportunity to make the product collapsible. For this we need 4 bolts with nuts with a diameter of 15 mm. Bolts must be carefully welded to one side of each of the tubes, which we will use as the legs. It is important not to spoil the thread!

Grill ready

The grill is almost ready and soon it will be possible to use it as intended and see how the things produced with their hands, nicer to operate

At each corner of the bottom drawer drilled one hole, whose diameter is slightly larger than the bolts, welded to the legs. On the inside of the box-the basics of weld over the holes of the nut. Looking forward to the metal cooled down, and then tighten the nut bolts.

Corners can simply be welded to the base, or attached with 2 bolts and nuts. Area is superimposed on the corner of the box, the top and bottom of the planned location of the holes that need to be drilled through the wall and area. Bolting the leg is attached to the box.

The base of the grill made of metal ready. You can weld handles on the sides to make a tent or a shelf for the wood to attach the hook of the poker. All subsequent actions will be prompted by your imagination, but now you can use the result of their labors to prepare juicy, flavorful and delicious kebabs. Bon appetit!
