Have a go at making Jimmy Doherty’s projects from this season’s Friday Night Feast.

Each week, Jimmy uses his DIY skills to create imaginative weekend builds for us to cook on. Have a go at home yourself with these handy PDF guides.

Episode 1 – STEEL DRUM BBQ

Jimmy makes a classic steel drum BBQ – with a large cooking area for searing meat and grilling veg, plus a side stove to cook accompanying dishes.


This week Jimmy’s using wooden pallets to construct a super-easy (and adaptable) Japanese grill. Using power tools and some DIY skills, you can get this build made in a couple of hours.

Come back next week to see what Jimmy’s up to in Episode 3.
