I just thought of a brilliant idea

....using my old, round wrought iron patio table and a Weber Smokey Joe charcoal grill.

I just didn't want to lose my thought so I just put it here....
If the idea is feasible I'll document it here, pictures and all.

This is my next project..... it will require cutting, welding, and of course, painting.
I'm going to lose sleep over this tonight just imagining how it's gonna turn out....

Here's what I'm thinking of doing...
I'm going to cut out a hole in the middle of the steel patio table, reinforce it with a steel collar, and drop my Weber Smokey Joe charcoal grill into it. I'm turning this spare patio table into a Korean BBQ / Japanese Yakiniku table.

Yes, most definitely!
Here's an old, yakitori photo from several years ago, and that's the same actual Smokey Joe grill I'm using for this project.

To me your idea is awsome! I'd love to do the same thing. Not only will it work brilliantly, it also brings friends round the table. How great is that!

Well, that's the whole idea....the communal thing. You cook, drink, talk, drink, eat....in that order, and repeat.

Great work, roadfix! We have some friends who did something similar to this for crab-picking parties. Sit around the table picking bushels of blue crabs and toss the shells into the center of the table

When dinner is over, you could put a round cast iron or stainless pizza pan over the grill and put containers of melted milk chocolate, peanut butter chocolate and marshmallow fluff chocolate on it - fondue! Have brownies and pound cake for dipping

By the time these types of dinner (more drinking than eating) is over we would be too drunk to do anything else ....
