@Rajat, yes the grill on bottom is the best idea to keep the food ash free.
I'll try to make one probably around end of this month.
will certainly take lots of pics when i make it,
thanks to shyamhedge as his suggestion made my old canon digi-cam come back to life.

Few years ago i was also looking for some stuff but dint find anyhting to my liking within my budget and so i decided to go DIY way but in slightly different way.

I got it made from a known person who is running welding shop and infact got it free as he was having lot of scrap.However idea was mine and it was implemented in perfect way though the BBQ is somewaht ugly looking but who cares when the end result is so good.Will post the pics later.

Make a small volcano sort of with the coal, in the center keep vegetable oil soaked tissue papers and light them, leave this burning and keep repeating until the inner coals are smouldering, you will have to use a lot of effort in blowing them from time to time, use a pvc pipe, this way your coal too will smell of oil which in a way would be good

I use kapur (used for puja) to lite the coal. Its easy and quick.
I have BBQ grill with stand. At bottom it has an ash collector too.

Another successful BBQ session yesterday, this time made some design changes in the grill, added a wire mesh at the bottom of the GI frame to facilitate ash removal from the ambers, worked like charm this time. Plus dried the coal in sun for around 4 hours for quicker ignition time. And as you can see with the smile on my buddy's face, we enjoyed the grilled chicken to the fullest

Thanks for this thread, we were successful in making something similar to this. Inspirations from this thread was the driving factor. I will update the pictures pretty soon. Cost went up to Rs:1000/-. I will explain the whole setup with pictures. This was a Diwali project for us.
