Homemade Grill
1 Attachment(s)
I had this grill built to my specs here in Mesa, AZ. You can see my oven in the background. I use the expended coals to heat up the grill for veggies and Mex cooked chicken, etc.

The grill was made from a full sheet of (4x8) 3/16 steel. So their was nothing left over, the plans called for the grill to be 4x4 with 1ft sides. The grill top slides and is 2ft x 4ft with steel mesh.

The legs have an internal piece that can extend and raise the grill up another foot just to make it comfortable.

When in the down position, it also serves as a great fire pit.

what you see in the grill is a piece of mesquite for a piece of wild caught Alaskan salmon we got as a gift. The firebrick is used to keep the coals in one place and focus the heat for a great sear. The salmon was about 1 1/2 inches thick so it had to cook for about 9 min total time. It was great. In fact my hands still smell of the mesquite smoke as I am typing this.

I have better images at a larger size of the grill I posted earlier - I am learning how to post a little better. ml

Thanks Navy Intel. I was looking for a supplier closer to home than Davis Salvage.
