Talk about upcycling [2] — this tiny barbeque grill is made from a single Altoids Sours tin, two salvaged computer fan guards and a handful of nuts and screws, and it’s big enough to handle a wiener or a hamburger patty! Instructables user vmspionage [3] claims that he (or she) got the inspiration from the eBq [4], which employs the larger Altoids mints tin, but in the name of progress vmspionage [3] has made that original grill look like a 1980s computer by comparison.

If you’re as curious as we are about how to construct one of these grills, check out the DIY instructions at Instructables [6] and show your finished product off at this weekend’s Labor Day festivities [7]. And don’t forget desert — as one Instructables reader observed, “It’s the perfect marshmallow bbq!”
