Anyone have any pics of a raised grid using beer cans?

Im just curious. Been thinkin of trying this with 3-4 cans but i remember throwing cans on campfires when i was a kid and watching them melt down to nothing only to make different colors of fire. Would think it would almost do same thing with a hot egg cook.... I dunno

    I buy my beer in bottles so I don't use the beer can method to raise my cooking level. However, I can't really see it being a problem.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Aluminum melts at 1221 degrees Fahrenheit. Even on a campfire, the can has to be sitting on the red hot coals in order to melt. Your cook will be fine.

    Lots of time. Nephew has a calibrated foot can get each can the same height with one stomp. How hot is your cook?

    as long the compacted cans are the same height they should work. Don't drink beer anymore but I am sure I can find some donor cans to test.

    You can't possibly getting enough air flow to have to worry about that.

    I was balancing 16 oz cans on the fire ring notches. They are not super stable if not filled with sand. I had one fall when pulling meat. Upon hitting the coals, it immediately started to disintegrate. Not much left when I finally got it with the tongs. I now have a PS Woo2 and greatly appreciate the stability/ease of use.

    Thought about it briefly and enjoy CL but not how I want to be remembered. I am going to have to go with a picture of my canine buddy Flynn who is always by my side.
