Of course, this list can be changed, and no one bothers you to show a little imagination, but please do not forget to put on protective equipment and observe safety regulations (otherwise you risk to teach injury. Materials: You will need 2 tubes, with one to be placed in the other. I used copper tubes 18 mm in diameter and 15 mm in diameter.In principle, any metal will do, but I used copper, because such pipes are lighter, they do not deform much under the influence of fire, have thin walls and, most importantly, I have had them in abundance (remnants after working on the heating system for the house) so they cost me nothing. 2 caps for a larger diameter pipe (also available). A bit of 2 millimeter knitting needles from a bicycle wheel. I can not specify the exact number of spokes, later you will understand why. The spokes should be made of stainless steel - they will grill food. Tip: if you have a bike repair shop nearby, ask them about the knitting needles - you can get them for free (I personally had to poke around for a long time with this wheel from your old bike). Dimensions: Everything is pretty simple here, because you will have to cut off the parts according to a single size (to get a rectangular barbecue). Tip: The more your brazier, the more needles you will need. All the spokes should fit on a tube of smaller diameter. I took a step of 20 cm because I calculated that about 25 spokes of 2.2 mm in diameter would fit in a tube with a diameter of 15 mm.

Cut the tubes


Saw two tubes of equal length and grind rough edges.As I already mentioned, I made them 20 cm long.

Cut the spokes to the desired length

You have the right number of knitting needles, and you just have to find the holes. The spokes should also be the same length, as they should sit evenly in the grooves you have drilled. Pocket grill

Tip:You will need 2 spokes with the original thread and nipple at one end and bent at a 90 ° angle at the other, so their length should be about 5 - 10 mm more than the rest. Please keep this in mind!

Getting Started

I don’t want to lie to you: it’s not so easy to do the first time without the right skill and skillful hands.

We disassemble and pack our brazier

Everything is very simple here - unscrew the nipples at the ends of the outer spokes, and the whole structure disintegrates by itself. Packing it is also not difficult.

Final Thoughts

So, as you yourself were convinced that everything is not so difficult. Supplement №1 :Some of you expressed concern about the fact that copper releases harmful gases when heated. I can not refute it from a scientific point of view, but I could not find any source on the Internet that would prove this thesis, therefore: future comments a la "copper emits toxic fumes when heated" will be ignored until A link to a reliable source will be posted. Addition No. 3: The website of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention says about copper pairs: “Gas may be released in copper and brass plants and in the production of copper alloys.” Given the melting point of copper or copper alloys, we can argue that no harmful emissions over the fire can be out of the question. I'm not very friendly with the language,so in some places my speech may seem incomprehensible, so do not hesitate to ask questions or ask for a photo - I will be happy to help!
