This is my version of a St Lucia Coal Pot.

I had seen Steve Johnson an original one at one of our Smokers Weekend with the Clay Stove. 

I had some spare Refrigerant Cylinders hanging around my workshop so went to work on one.

Filled the cylinder with soapy water and let sit for 24 hours.

Removed the valve.

Marked around the Centre and cut with an angle grinder.

Drilled several 10mm holes around the place where the valve was fitted.

Welded a plate onto the handle part of the cylinder.

Made a grill of mesh to fit inside to sit the burning coals on then made a grill grate with a handle.

Cooking Grate. It's sat on a cooling rack as the base gets hot.
