Small gas grill conversion ideas needed.

Basically looking to turn this into a small charcoal grill for just a 1-2 steak deal ...Got some grill paint to give her a fresh coat .. im going to call her Lilly cause shes just a lil grill ....im not sure if u can tell by the picture that its leaning to the left quite a bit and I looked at the bolt down below and im not sure it can be tightened to str8en her out or not ....... I was thinking about mabye taking the grill off by the post and dumping a few bags of quick dry cement into like a home depot bucket and setting it in there ...also looking for some ideas on cleaning out the what looks like 10 years of gunk off the inside of this baby...

Any ideas would be great...

If you have a welding machine, You could weld some 1in angle iron braces from the base to the tube at 45 deg angles.

Home depot sells angle iron & they sell expanded metal, that could be used for a charcoal/fire tray. I would buy the thickest gauge they have.

I have a old cast aluminum pit simular in size & shape to yours but its not gas. It was sold new as a charcoal pit
It gets very hot at cooking grate level even with the charcoal grate as low as it will go. So don't worry about making an ajustable coal grate.
