Upgrade Your Grill with a D.I.Y. Toasting and Warming Rack

This easy hack is so key for Labor Day grilling!

Related To:

To extend the utility of your charcoal grill, set up a simple D.I.Y bun warmer. All you need is a small cooling rack and 3 to 4 clean aluminum cans. We used the shorter 14-ounce cans but you can use what you have on hand. Set the cans upside-down on the grill grate and place the small rack on top, making sure it's steady. You can now place your burger and hotdog buns on the rack to warm them gently.

You can also have warm butter at the ready by placing a small ramekin of butter over the indirect heat. The butter melts slowly and you can slather your cushy buns just before you load them up.
