This is my BBQ upgrade. This BBQ was found, discarded, on the side of the road about 3 years ago and has been the best BBQ I have ever owned. New they are about $120 but it is somewhat satisfying to know that I have recycled something. I love fixing things and making them better.
I picked up some unwanted perforated sheet metal from a friends place, as I thought it would be a good way to enclose the BBQ and still be able to let air circulate under the BBQ. It is a flat plate BBQ, so the air can’t escape through the top, without air the burners wouldn’t work properly.
The lid I got from a friend who was throwing it away, just needed to move the handle from the top to the front and attach some hinges, works great.
