I love eating outdoors and I especially love cooking outdoors, whether over a camp fire or a barbecue. This DIY barrel barbecue project is actually fairly easy to build and it could cost less that $50. Even cheaper if you get a free barrel off craigslist or from local shops etc. This is simple to make, the hardest part is cutting the lid out of the side of the barrel. Make your own DIY barrel barbecue and it will look awesome and last you years and years.
In an emergency situation, a large barbecue such as this this would also double up as a great back up cooking solution for the whole family.
