Yakitori Grill from MAKE Volume 30

When longtime MAKE contributing writer Bob Knetzger took a trip to Japan, one of his most memorable experiences was sampling the sizzling street-side grills. In his intro he writes:

Unlike big American grills that cook anything from burgers to ribs to steaks, these specially sized grills were designed to do one thing and one thing only: skewers. Short skewers loaded with chicken, asparagus, meatballs, and other simple ingredients spanned the narrow troughs of red-hot coals. The suspended foods cooked quickly and without burning or sticking to a grate or grill surface.

Bob was particularly fond of the yakitori (marinated chicken on skewers), and designed this simple grill with sheet metal body, cake pan end caps, L-strap legs, wine cork feet and handles, and special roll-proof, double-crook skewers. He shares his step-by-step on the pages of MAKE Volume 30 and on Make: Projects. And yes, the tasty yakitori recipe is also included.

From the pages of MAKE Volume 30:

MAKE Volume 30Until recently, home automation was gimmicky, finicky, and user-hostile. But today, thanks to a new crop of devices and technology standards, home automation is useful, fun, and maker-friendly. In the special section of MAKE Volume 30, we’ll show you: how to flip any switch in your home with a smartphone, home automation without programming, controlling your HVAC with an Arduino, a webcam security system, and a wall-mounted Notification Alert Generator (NAG) that plays timely reminders as you walk by. Plus, you’ll build a Yakitori Grill, a robust R/C flying-wing airplane, sturdy furnishings from PVC, and more!
