Cut your own steel plate for your next outdoor event or outdoor cookout.
This article is about how to cut steel plates for your own outdoor cookouts.
A metal plate that can be attached to the top of your kitchen sink and a metal plate mounted to a ceiling fan can be the perfect pair for any outdoor event, even if you’re just getting started.
It will be easy to install and will be durable enough to last many years.

Choose a Size You’re Going to Use The length of the plate is very important.
If you’re going to cut it for a tabletop grill, a 30-inch plate is the ideal length.
The length will vary depending on the size of the steel bar, so you’ll need to use a calculator to figure out how long you’ll be able to use.
For a smaller table, use a bar that’s at least the same size as your kitchen ceiling fan.
If the bar is much bigger than that, you might want to use thicker steel bar.
To cut a steel bar for a table top griddle, you’ll probably need to cut an 11-inch bar.
Measure The Steel Bar For this section, we’re going for the most secure, light, and durable bar you can find.
If your bar is not a heavy bar, like a 30 or 41-inch steel bar (the most common bar size used in tabletop grill applications), you’ll want to get a 10-inch or 11- to 12-inch thick bar.
For most tabletop grill uses, a bar with a 10 to 12 inch thick is sufficient.
For more serious cooking or cooking on wood or stone, a 10 inch thick bar will be ideal.
For wood and stone grill applications, a thicker bar will work better, too.
For table top applications, use thick bar steel that’s about the same diameter as the bar you’re using.
A bar with an extra-heavy bar or bar with extra-light weight will make your grill stand out even more.
To determine the right bar for your grill, measure the bar closest to your kitchen.
This is the bar that you’ll attach to your ceiling fan or to your table.
For your tabletop grill or table top cooking, make sure you use the heaviest bar you have available, but you can always experiment with heavier bars that you don’t have to worry about.
When you’re finished measuring the bar, take the length of your bar and the width of the bar.
The width will be the same for all of your cooking applications.
You can measure the width with a ruler or an appropriate ruler-like item, or you can use a scale.
Use the width you’ve determined as your guide for your height.
If a bar is longer than you measured, it might be easier to cut a shorter length to make it easier to attach to the fan.
You might be able a longer bar than you calculated by using the width as your guideline.
If it’s easier to use the width, use the length as your guidance.
For example, if your bar measures 10 inches and you calculated 10 inches as your bar length, the length would be 10 feet and 10 inches, or 6.5 feet and 5 inches.
Install Your Grill Grill steel plates are an essential component to your outdoor cooking experience.
For outdoor cooking, you don.t need to make all of the adjustments you do when using a grill, but a good grill will have a good steel plate that you can hang from a wall.
If that’s not the case, you can still have a decent grill, just with a little extra effort.
This video from our friends at Food for Thought walks you through the steps to making a good, thick steel grill, whether you’re doing a BBQ or a grilled cheese sandwich.
A good grill should also be sturdy enough to withstand the pressure of a grill and the weight of a table.
If using a large bar, it’s best to make the plate at least 6 inches (15 centimeters) tall.
If installing your grill in your kitchen, make the top half of the grill slightly longer than the bottom, or at least a quarter inch longer than your top bar.
When installing your steel plate on a table, make it the same height as your top plate.
Measure the Width The width of your grill is a very important factor when installing a grill.
The more a grill is tall, the more difficult it is to maintain a good angle with the bar above it.
For grilling on wood, the height of your wood will be just about right, but for wood on stone, you may need to adjust your height to make sure your grill will be as tall as your table when it is installed.
