Let’s say you want to take advantage of the non-disgusting weather and do a little backyard barbecuing this spring. Only problem is, you don’t have a grill. All you’ll need to do is go into your apartment, gather up some junk and follow these six extremely simple steps:
What you’ll need to make your own DIY BBQ grill: A tin can, garden shears, aluminum foil, a cheap rack, and some charcoal.
Step 1: Use the shears to make about eight cuts in the can.
Step 2: Pull the can out into a simple basket.
Step 3: Cover the basket with aluminum foil
Step 4: Fill the aluminum foil with charcoal.
Step 5: Light the charcoal and cover with the rack.
Step 6: Once it’s hot enough, cook yourself some dinner.
