Make A DIY Grill Out Of A Tin Can

If you're in serious need of a grill but don't have one on hand, you can satisfy that hot dog craving with just a tin can and a baking sheet.

We've discussed how to build a DIY grill before, but this method is the most doable since pretty much everyone has a tin can lying around. All you need to do is cut slats around the can and fold them back to create a large opening. Then fill 'er up with charcoal (use aluminium foil to keep it clean) and place a baking sheet on top.

The nice thing about this is that tin cans come in all different sizes, so you can make your tin can grill however large you small you want to fit your needs.

    To keep the tin can clean!!!

    Good idea though for BBQ out and about.

    so you don't have a grill, but you have some mesh, tin can, aluminum foil, charcoal, tin snips, and sausages? sounds unrealistic to me

      I don't have a grill, but i have all of that stuff

        Well I think you can afford to buy yourself a proper grill then... I see what henry means, its kinda cool but its also going to have a very limited scope as far as viability goes.

    Everyone has foil and a mesh and tin cans are a dime a dozen. Its reuseable and easy to replace. I love it. But I dont have any snags :(
