WARNING: Cutting aluminum cans will give the metal very sharp edges. Sharp edges cut skin. You may want to use gloves to mitigate any risk. Hot coals also pose a number of risks. Never use around flammable materials or on tabletops sensitive to heat. This project should not be attempted without adult supervision and adequate training. Use of this video content is at your own risk.
I was amazed at how well this really works! I lit 2 coal briquettes in a separate metal container, and let them burn until the outsides turned white, then I transferred them to the Bitty-Q, put a couple of bratwurst on the grill, and came back 10 minutes later to find them perfectly grilled, and mouthwatering.
Inspired by: A picture I saw from the team at Mike's Hard Lemonade. It portrayed someone using a drink can as a miniature BBQ. The picture was faked, but I tried it in real life and this is what happened.
