How To Make A Grill
Figuring out how to make a grill is simple. Grills come with basically three things. If you're going to make a grill you need a basin to hold your charcoal. You'll also need a top with a closeable opening to regulate the heat inside the grill. The most important thing you need to make a grill is a place to lay your meat on so it can cook. All of these elements of a grill can easily be found, and or built out of things in nature. Today you're going to learn a quick and easy way to make a grill with things you can find lying around in nature. Here's an easy way to make a grill.
What you need:
- a cutting tool
- lighter fluid
- Getting your stuff together. All a grill is, is a modification of the old school way to barbecue meats. So, in order to build yourself a decent grill, all you have to do is revisit the old school. Make sure you have a cutting tool for cutting down some tree branches. When you collect tree branches, make sure you cut them off of the trees. Don't be lazy and pick dead branches off of the ground. You want the live branches because they wont burn as fast. Dead branches will catch fire causing you to lose your meat in the charcoal.
- Digging a hole. After you've gathered some nice long living branches, dig yourself a hole. Now make sure the circumference of the hole isn't too big. You need to be able to line the branches on top of the hole. You don't want them to fall to the bottom.
- Adding the charcoal and lighter fluid. Throw a decent amount of charcoal bricks to the bottom of your grill. Add lighter fluid. Make sure you don't allow the fire to get too high. You want enough of a fire to cook your food, not incinerate it.
- Line the hole. Grab your branches and line the hole. Take two of your more sturdy branches and lay one over each side. Push them firmly into the ground. Now, grab the rest of them and lay them over the top of the first two. So if the first two were pointing North and South, you'd lay the remaining branches East to West. Make sure there's enough space between each branch, but not too much. You don't want the meat to fall through.
- You're all done. Your grill is completed. Use a sharpened stick to flip your meat. When you're done cooking use you water to put out the flames.
