My new tabletop CG!

I got my new Char Griller the other day, fabricated a set of legs out of 1/8" steel bar, and turned it into a tabletop unit, although it came with a wheeled cart which I heard was not too stable from the few reviews I've read. I like this setup so far.

Thanks! Sure, use the leg idea. It's very simple to fabriated with the right tools.
I got the bricks from Home Depot for 34 cents each. The steel bar came from them too. I paid about $9 for a 6 ft length.

Thank you. I used a bench vise and some muscle to bend the steel bar.

I did! I used it twice already. I grilled some salmon and chicken wings over the weekend. So far I'm very pleased with this set up. I like its pull-out ash pan.......too easy and convenient...
