A few months ago, a friend asked me to help him out with an article he was writing for Edible Cleveland, a magazine that showcases the local food movement here in Cleveland. The aim was to do a how-to on making a barrel grill, so we got ahold of a barrel, collected some scraps and spent an afternoon piecing one together. It was supposed to be pretty down and dirty, so it was mostly cut and weld. We did fire up the forge for a little decorative touch as well, but you will have to check it out online to see that: Building a Barrel Grill.
