    Default An Elegant Barbecue Grill

    Greetings All,
    This is my first post. I hope I don't step on any toes. Since this is a bit of a commercial post. I have tried to make contact with whoever is on the other end of the advertisement link but have not received a reply. So hopefully this does not get deleted and I do get contacted. I have had a machine/fab shop for over 30 years. I was at a BBQ last summer when in the middle of cooking the guy's grill basically disintegrated. I mentioned I might be able to help him out with a new one. So I came up with this.



    It is all stainless steel. The two grills move independently with the one hand wheel. There is a knob in the center of the wheel that selects each grill. Each grill is divided into three sections that can be removed for ease of cleaning.

    Here are a couple of more shots:





    The brick fire pit was existing and I made grill to fit.

    I think I am going to stick with the octagon shape and make the next one as a free standing version with an integral fire box.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks for the compliment. The grills actually hang on aircraft cable.
    This is inside the top cross tube:



    I had to think about this one for a bit.

    Thanks again,

    Phil

    Can the top grill go all the way down to the bottom one? I'm thinking bbq paninis!
    Don't argue with idiots...they will just bring you down to their level then beat you with experience!

    Hi ChumpChange,

    The grills stop within 4 inches of each other no matter where they are in elevation. However that's not a bad idea. It would be matter of mounting the grills off center on the lift plates. You have to be careful when you build stuff and hand it to people. If you give them too many options they can get into trouble. I just made it so you couldn't crash the grills and lock up the lift mechanism.

    Thanks for your interest,

    Phil
