Edward Coufal, Temple, Texas, built this steak barbecue for $75 using a large combine tire rim, oil field pipe, cutout horse cultivator wheel fitted with steel grate, a chain and pulley with cable. The side tray is 1/4-inch steel plate from a used display stand and is attached to both the pipe and combine rim. Build a fire with oak or mesquite, let it burn down. Lower the steak down on the grate close to the bed of coals. Enjoy!
