You can probably tell how much I love grilling from the different types of bbqs I have featured on this blog. The truth is I can never get enough of grilled meat, no matter what season it is. I ran into this diy portable bucket bbq grill today that I thought I should share with you guys.

Who knew you could make a BBQ grill from just one metal bucket? It is perfect for small spaces and portable enough to carry around whenever you need to take the grilling party on the road. For example, tailgating , camping or just having a picnic in the woods or by the river.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 2 gallon non galvanized metal bucket
  • hand drill
  • 3/4″ drill bit
  • round griddle
  • charcoal
  • tape measure
  • marker

I think the best way to drill the breather holes is to sit the bucket upside down. Measure about 5 to 6 inches from the bottom and then every 2 to 3 inches around the bucket. Use your marker to mark the measurements. Then take your hand drill and get to work drilling the holes.

Now all you need is a griddle that will perfectly fit on top of your bucket. If you cant find one, you may have to cut one to fit or improvise with a smaller square one that does not fit snugly, but can stay suspended on top while you grill, without falling into the bucket.

How to use? Just put your charcoal in the bottom of the bucket. Light them up, then replace the griddle on top of the bucket. Wait for it to heat up before placing your meat on top and start grilling! 🙂
