Use some Capita legs from ikea preferably the 8 not the 6 like I used- BBQ will sit higher
The mounts of the capita legs mount through the holes in the wheel- no welding needed!

Ever wonder what to do with those old truck wheels? You know the ones sitting in your yard? Well here is one thing I made- A bbq! Here are the steps:

Find an old pick up wheel (I got mine on Free-Cycle), Pick up a package of Ikea Capita legs- the 8" legs would have been better ( I had the 6" legs sitting around). Then take the leg mounts and put them on the deep side of the truck wheel, screw the legs(leaving out the plastic adjustment thingy) through the other side, pick up a grill top (mine is for a weber grill- 18") or take one off an old bbq, Use some hardware cloth (fencing) Inside the deep end for an ash catcher. And you are done! Happy BBQ'ing!Note; You might want to add some small C-Clamps to keep the grill centered or some bolts through the top of the wheel!

Rob, I think if GM starts making this an option on their pick-up trucks it might pull them out of bankruptcy.
