Thanks for the additional comments. The grill will get further modification over the weekend such as welding the charcoal grate mounts, drilling out small intake holes, making a small cutout underneath for easier ash disposal, and so forth... I will also get rid of the top cooking screen as I did not like the skewers resting directly on them. I already have another idea for that.

I love the name YAKMAN, btw!....:))

A friend snapped this photo with her phone camera the other night. The grill was placed on a concrete ledge.
Riceballs on the left side, chicken in the middle, and beef on the other end...

I worked a little more on the grill yesterday which included adding carrying handles and modifying the cooking surface. Intake vents in the back and ash cleanout at the bottom were also added. Will do some more grilling on it during the week to see how well it performs...

RF, I'm sure it will be very functional, but I'm also taken with the artistry of the piece.

It looks like something that would be in a funky high class shop for the rich and famous of the Hollywood set. At the very least, I'd post a picture and a hefty price at Etsy - Your place to buy and sell all things handmade, vintage, and supplies

You could always keep your prototype masterpiece and make another for someone else.

He would have to make another one. Looks like this one is being used on a regular basis. The food looks yummy!

I did another test run last night, with some chicken bits. The skewers resting on the metal rails are so much easier to manage with this setup.
I also cut out a small grate which can be placed on the rails for grilling non-skewered items like small slabs of salmon, for instance.

The briquettes burned out completely by morning for easy cleaning and disposal of ash.
