Building a real trash can barbecue

Too cheap to buy one of them fancy store bought Weber smokers? Got a trash can (or a neighbor with a trash can?) and a hot plate? You are all set buddy boy. Following the plans on this link you can build your own trash can barbecue for less than $50.

A few tips for my fellow Aggies who may attempt this:

  • Use a metal trash can, PVC is not a good flavored smoke
  • Make sure you’ve emptied the trash before you begin
  • If you live near Sesame Street, check for Oscar
