How to Make a Tiny BBQ Out of a Recycled Soup Can

We’re a pretty satisfied bunch, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t covetous. Sometimes we see things out there that we just must have. Cool Things We Want is an archive of those earthly desires.

(via) I saw this brilliant little DIY project earlier this summer but have been too buried and busy to give it a proper shot.

If you want to give it a try, keep in mind that our Parks Board nabobs banned charcoal BBQs in some local parks yesterday, so don’t get carried away by its tiny, stealthy, mobile awesomeness. Don’t be stupid. Vancouver is dry right now, and our firefighters have got better things to do than fix your fuck ups.

Follow the simple steps from the maker, Mr. Useful, in the handy video below.
