Recycled Tire Rim BBQ and Fire Pit

OK – tough choice coming up… you can either buy an expensive ( millions like them) barbecue grill or you can make a absolute one-off from  junk? Oh, did we mention this one is sure to be a great conversation starter!

Grab some old car or truck rims and you’re already half way there! You might already have some sitting in  your garage collecting dust. Any car wrecking yard is going to have 100’s laying around looking for a home.

The project does require some welding and steel cutting but it’s a project that could be accomplished over the weekend. Don’t know how to weld? We”, you could go to a shop or, better yet, ask an experienced friend help you. Build two… one for each of you. You might even learn some welding skills on the way!


  • 2 Used Steel Car/Truck Rims
