In the next few lines we will tell you how you can build yourself a charming barbecue, from the old rim and Euro pallets.
Grill yourself with the following materials

Step 2: Build the foundation
As a basis for the grill, you can use the threaded bolt to assemble new wooden boards or those from a Euro pallet. Make them rectangular or round as you wish. The shape is not so important, as opposed to the stability. Tip: To protect the wood, you can paint it at the end.
Color all metal parts black
Step 3: Assemble the main body
