Should be convertable to a nice wood fired grill when done. I have the spit planned out, just need a reason/motivation to build it....with no free weekends left this summer, my dreams of a pig roast are just that...dreams. The cart, I had laying around the garage and my father scored the drum. I welded the hinges and chain stays.
The cart top acts as an 'ash' tray..its cut out in the back so I can easily remove ash, there are holes driled in the bottome of the drum, as well as an elevated grate inside to raise the wood/coals up.
