“BBQ” is a common outdoor picnic method, which originated from the English word “barbecue”. Strictly speaking, barbecue can be divided into two categories: one is covered, using smoke to cook food, called “barbecue”; the other is uncovered, using fire to cook food, called “grill”.
The skewers we often talk about are closer to “grill”. However, these two words have little to do with the ingredients.

Whenever they encounter holidays or family reunions, they drive to nearby parks and beaches. They can also set up barbecue grills in their own yards or terraces for a relaxing barbecue party.

Disposable Aluminum Pans On Grill

You can use disposable aluminum pans on the grill. Place the ingredients in aluminum pan and place the pan directly on the grill. I recommend that you choose a thick, medium-sized disposable foil pan, generally 0.02-0.04mm thick. It can withstand high temperatures without losing its shape.
When using, you can make a few small holes in the bottom of the pan to facilitate heat transfer. If the edges of the pan are too high, you can trim them appropriately. Some people put a layer of paper on the bottom of the pan to prevent food from sticking. Leave enough space around the pan when placing it on the grill to allow the heat to circulate.

Where to Buy Disposable Grill

Many supermarkets stock disposable grills, especially in the summer. If you want to buy professional grilling tools, go to stores that specialize in outdoor equipment, camping equipment, or grilling supplies. For a small number of disposable grills, choose online retailers. Websites such as Amazon, Walmart, or specialty outdoor retailers.
If you are grilling outdoors, stores around the site are also a good choice for buying disposable grills.

how to make a disposable charcoal grill


  1. Prepare the grill: First choose a large, sturdy foil pan to serve as the base for your disposable grill.
  2. Add charcoal: Fill the bottom of the foil pan with charcoal briquettes. The amount of charcoal you need depends on the size of the pan and the amount of food you are cooking.
  3. Light the charcoal: Use a lighter or match to light the charcoal briquettes. Wait for the charcoal to turn to ash, which should take about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Start grilling: Once the charcoal is ready, you can place the grill over the pan if you have one. If not, you can cook the food directly over the charcoal, using a cooking utensil such as tongs to handle the food.
  5. Grill and enjoy: Now you can place the food on the grill (or directly over the charcoal if you don’t have one) and start grilling.
  6. Extinguish the charcoal: When you are done cooking, carefully pour water over the charcoal to extinguish it. Allow the grill to cool completely before handling the foil pan and any remaining charcoal.
