People are transforming old tire rims into the perfect DIY fire pit & BBQ

Now that the summer is upon us, people are taking to the great outdoors in their droves.

While sitting in the sun has its benefits in and of itself, there are few things more satisfying than tucking into some delicious barbequed food - like a smoky hot dog or a perfectly sizzled skewer crammed with your favorite veggies!

However, as we all know, unless you're opting for a disposable, barbeques can be expensive.

But that doesn't necessarily have to be the case. With nothing more than some old tires and a few tools, you can easily create a DIY BBQ (or fire pit) - simultaneously saving your cash and helping the environment!

This a great opportunity to recycle, so check out your local scrapyard to see if they have anything suitable.
