How to: Make a Mini Grill from an Altoids Tin

The rectangular, hinged-top Altoids tin has been an inspiration for DIYers and makers since…well, probably since Altoids hit the shelves.

The updated and sleeker round Altoid Sours tin has a removable lid, which allows for a whole heap of clever reuses…such as an ash catcher for this tabletop barbecue grill.

Instructabler vmspionage says, “This [grill] is powered by a standard-sized charcoal briquette and is capable of cooking a full-size hot dog (cut down to size) or smaller hamburger patties with ease.”

That’s a pretty efficient use of fuel. Works great for all those single s’more cravings. (Other people get those, right?)

Now, who has suggestions for how to light a single chunk of charcoal?
