I was wondering, can I safely convert an old gas grill to a charcoal? I have an old gas grill that is just about worn out, I was getting ready to trash it when I started thinking. Obviously I would need to get rid of all the gas structures, but my biggest question is: will the aluminum body hold up to the charcoal heat?

If you put in a small grate to lift them to get air under them shouldn't be any problem.

Alan, I saw a really cool gas firepit made out of one on HGTV or DIY or CREATE or one of those channels. They ran the gas lines (not plastic, but metal) in through one of the side openings on the side, they filled it about halfway with gravel, dug a hole for it to fit into in the ground, down to the gas line, which was about 1" under, (to keep you from seeing it) filled the dirt back in. The tank was about 10' away, up against a fence. They ran the pipe underground. They used one of those round gas burners, which was laid on top of the gravel, then they filled in around it with glass rocks to cover the round burner. It was super cool. They had spray painted the outside with heat resistant paint.
