    Just make sure you use something without chrome. chrome, when heated, releases poisonous fumes

    What keeps the coals from falling out onto your lovely wood base?

    • David says:

      agreed… might consider using some dense sort of hardware cloth to keep the coals “In” the rim.

      Anyone tried using a stripped steel spare or “doughnut” ,as there are not to many holes in it for anything to fall out of? I am trying that soon with a 15″one *as that is what our old car had* and a 13 1/2″ grill from the hardware store to go with it.

    What size rim did you use … and how do you prevent the hot embers from dropping through the rim and burning the base?
    Thanks ~The Wizard

    What size r is that? Really want to build one but as I don’t have any wheels laying around I need to find one at the junkyard.

    Line the bottom with aluminum foil to stop the coals in.
