    Coleman Fold N Go & Poss Home Made Grill Box

    Cleaning the garage, sorting camping equip, and getting ready for the summer..

    I have both a Coleman Fold N Go for pan cooking, boiling, etc.., and a small propane BBQ grill.

    Like to have my Coleman to be all-n-one and thinking of making a grill box out of an extra 8 QT pot I have sitting around. Then I will just have to carry the Coleman Fold N Go, and home made BBQ grill. Space saving is one of the objectives but mainly making the Coleman all-n-one stove/BBQ grill, and like to thinker and make something out of stuff sitting around.

    Idea came from Camp Chef, and its accessories (BBQ Grill Box for a lil over $80): http://www.campchef.com/barbecue-gri...ner-stove.html; this BBQ grill box is designed to sit on Camp Chef stove and convert cooking stove to BBQ grill. Nice.

    Anyone played around making BBQ grill design and make own BBQ grill and .

    For $80 or less, I can make something out the pot custom made/fit my Coleman.

    Pic 1 - My Coleman Fold N Go Dual Burner Stove

    Pic 2 - I like using one burner e.g. making pasta, and the other side for grilling. But there is no option for a BBQ grill box like the Camp Chef.

    Pic 3 - Found this 8 Qt pot sitting around the garage. Thinking of modifying it to have a flame diffuser and to channel drips around; add grill on top, and cut the bottom (will be the new top), and add a vent on the lid/cover.

    Pic 4 - I like this 8 Qt pot; it fits dia of the Coleman Fold N Go Burner.

    Pic 5 - Pot is about 7-8" tall; hopefully enough vol to grill a small 2-4 lb slab of Kinder's meat (good for 2-4 people). Not planning to grill anything bigger 2-4 lbs of meat on this homemade box while overlanding, and if I do, will plan for it and make sure someone has the right size grill.

    Pic 6 - Pot is about 9" in dia

    Questions anyone thinking or have designed their own custom BBQ grill box:
    - What design and function considerations I have to keep in mind e.g. placement of air vent, heat circulation...?
    - Pot is stainless steel, and not cast iron like the Camp Chef Grill box; will the material be suff for using as BBQ grill box?
    - For cutting the top (botton of the pot), I don't have a plasma cutter, but have a high speed circular cutter; also I will need get rid of sharp edges.
    - Any other tips/suggestions!

    Happy Grilling, and thanks in advance!
