The upcycling project
The U-Grill was created out of the desire to grill in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. That's why we only worked with used materials for this project that had served their purpose and gave them a new life. We used a stovepipe, an old stove grate and a stainless steel pinboard. 
The grill can be extended in length by pulling the short sides. 
The use of olive stone briquettes is an environmentally friendly alternative for coal. They  can be used several times by extinguishing the embers with sand. 

Our project follows the approach of using old cellar treasures and relatively simple working steps to get to the self-built, sustainable barbecue. A freely available brochure shows the steps and basic building blocks required for the DIY grill using our example and aims to motivate people to do the same.​​​​​​​
