Turn Your Terra-Cotta Flower Pots Into a BBQ Smoker – DIY

A good ceramic (terracotta) flowerpot makes the perfect vessel for grilling. The ceramic material holds in and focuses heat while insulating the outside. The shape and size of a 10-inch pot is ideal for a few kebabs and the charcoal will stay hot for hours of grilling fun.

And, of course, a ceramic flower pot is very inexpensive. Turning your cottage into the ultimate weekend getaway has never been more simple thanks to Adam Holman, as he drums up some easy, quirky and fun DIY projects that you can do next time you’re at the cottage.

Just like belairdirect simplifies your insurance, we simplify life at the cottage by turning flower pots into a smoker. One of the modifications I wanted to include was to move the temperature control outside of the smoker into a separate box so I wouldn’t have to disassemble a hot smoker just to adjust the temperature.


A 10-inch flowerpot grill can hold three good sized kebabs and cook them in about 10 minutes. Since you have the pot handy your guests can take turns grilling up a wide range of foods when the flowerpot grill remains hot.
