When I first started in radio I was basically poor. I remember counting my pennies for enough money to buy some bread to go with my peanut butter. I could not afford a grill but that did not stop me. I remembered my dad building big bar-b-que pits and improvised.


I simply dug a small hole and lined it with foil. Then I added some coals and lit them with a little gasoline (this is an excellent way to get that singed eye lash look.) The I put a piece of fence over the coals and cooked on it. This worked well. I salute the person who thought of using the grocery cart (or buggy as my dad would call it.) Here are some other improvised grills. These are a little more expensive.
