Greetings to all lovers of craftsmanship, I propose to consider the instructions for making a unique barbecue in the form of a submarine. Such a DIY you will definitely surprise the guests, and as a gift such a grill will be a great thing. The homemade product is simple, you can assemble it from a propane cylinder, but the author just used a piece of pipe. You can easily find parts for homemade products, there are no special difficulties in manufacturing. In the tail section, in the propeller, the author placed a blower, and the smoke comes out at the top, from a pipe resembling a periscope. If you are interested in the homemade product, I suggest you study it in more detail!
List of materials:
– a cylinder from freon;
– a piece of steel pipe for the furnace body; < br> – a piece of pipe for the smoke pipe;
– square pipes for the frame;
– wheels from the carts;
– sheet steel;
– thick steel wire.
List of tools:
– welding machine;
– grinder (angle grinder);
– drill and step drill;
– marker, tape measure, ruler, etc.
The process of making homemade products:
Step one. Putting together the main body of the furnace
We take the bottle from under the freon, cut off its neck and bottom. These will be some kind of plugs for the pipe, from which the author made the brazier. You can simply use a ready-made 50 liter propane cylinder, not forgetting about safety during the cutting process.
In one of the details the author drills large-diameter holes from the balloon. This will be the back of the submarine, through these holes air will enter the brazier. Finally, we weld the plugs to the pipe and cut the pipe so that the barbecue lid is formed.
Step two. Working with the back of the boat
For the back of sheet metal, we make a piece in the form of a cone and weld it to the brazier.
We weld tail rudders to the tail of the boat; the author also made them from sheet metal. You can take thin steel, but you need a special welding machine for such purposes, the author uses TIG.
Making a propeller, you will need two pieces of pipe, large and small diameter. We weld the blades into these rings, which the author cut from pipes of small diameter. The welded propeller looks quite realistic.
Step three. Working with the lid
We strengthen the lid from the inside with steel plates so that it does not deform from frequent heating. We also cut a hole for the smoke pipe with a grinder.
We make the deckhouse out of sheet steel, as well as make the deckhouse fence. Thick, soft steel wire is suitable as material for the fence. In the wheelhouse, you also need to cut a hole through which the pipe will come out.
On the wheelhouse, you can place different antennas, a searchlight, and so on.
When the cabin is ready, you can cook everything. In the end, we make bridges from sheet steel and weld ladders from wire for them. Finally, the cover can be hung on secure door hinges
Step four. Air damper
Cut a circle out of a sheet of steel and hang it on the back of the propeller. This will be the air damper to control the air supply. The author used a bolt and a nut as a hinge.
Step five. Frame installation and testing
The author welded a simple frame from shaped pipes. The base has castors, the grill can be moved, and there are also folding shelves covered with wood on the frame. After painting, the homemade product looks gorgeous, like a real submarine. You can test, the author used coal, but firewood will do. Meat is perfectly cooked in the grill, you can fry both kebabs and use the grill grate.
This project is completed, I hope you liked the homemade product, and you found useful thoughts for yourself. Good luck and creative inspiration if you decide to do this again. Don't forget to share your ideas and homemade products with us!
