Interesting uses for grills besides cooking...
 
So maybe I've been going a little crazy lately (smoke inhalation?) but what interesting uses for grills besides cooking do you have?

I want to turn a few smokey joe's into an herb pot next to the grills. Just haven't come across any cheap/free yet. Sacrilege?

Unless it is completely rusted out, yes.

Before I turned my cookers into flower pots, I would turn my wife's flower pots into cookers.

Penalty!!!! Surrender your man card for 71.5 hours.


PS: if female, carry on--

Indirect grilling?

I've seen a pic of a smokey joe garage light fixture and grills for storage, that type of thing.

Just a conversation starter.

I think it would be ok if you used what you grew to feed an animal you were going to eat. Otherwise.....

I had thought about building what appears to be a drum set, out of grills, etc..

Use a 22.5 kettle as sort of a laid down kick drum, a couple smokey joes as tom-tom's, and one of those cheap brinkman smokers as the floor tom. The lid from the brinkman could be put on a stand as the snare drum, and the lid from the webers could be hung as cymbals. Maybe a stand with a couple cast iron skillets for the high-hat.

If you used drum stands, you may be able to tilt smokey joes to look like a drum set, but still stand them upright to use as normal.

(Oh, wait....my idea would be an interesting use, in addition to cooking.) Hahaha.

If you really want to re-purpose it, maybe a nice ice chest. or would that be ice kettle?

If they are still able to cook food, them give to your buddies who may need a little help in the outdoor cooking dept.

Speaking of light fixtures. Old steel or aluminum stadium lights upside down Inserted into a terra cotta flower pot with a charcoal and grilling grate installed would make a fantastic hibachi.

Maybe next post will be interesting things you can make into a grill!

I restored a very badly treated and rusted solid redhead and use it to cook. So still no excuse. :caked:

I'm thinking about using my Brinkman as a fire pit.
