Sensational & Inexpensive Portable Grill
NOTE: Make sure you buy a typical heavy clay pot with no glaze on the inside. They are put through a kiln so will withstand high temperatures as long as the change is not sudden. Never put water on the briquettes when finished as the sudden temperature change will crack the pot. Also, NEVER touch the pot when cooking as it gets very hot.

This is not safe for food. The mesh you use most likely has zinc in it. Or even worse could have cadmium Remember metal can be welded with lead solder. So you never know exactly what was used in the making of the mesh. While People take zinc in vitamin form, this type of mesh is just not safe for cooking food on. I would suggest instead using a replacement metal rack from the BBQ area of your local hardware store or even a metal cooling rack made for food use.
