1 Claim. 1

This invention relates to a structurally and functionally improved grill and in its more specific aspects aims to provide a grill for the cooking and broiling of food, which grill may be portable and ideally adapted for outdoor use.

It is an object of the present invention to furnish a unit of this type, the several portions of which may readily be collapsed, if desired, and which portions-when necessary-may be detached from each other for the purpose of substituting a, new element for one which requires replacement in the unit as then existing.

An additional object is that of designing a grill the parts of which may readily be shifted and assembled with respect to each other so that the user may conveniently stand to one or the. other side of the unit or the end of the same while operating and using the device.

By the present invention, structures are furnished which are capable and intended to be incorporated in a portable grill. However, it is within the province of the present invention to furnish such structures and employ the same in installations which need not necessarily be of a portable or collapsible nature.

A further object is that of furnishing a grill which will include relatively few parts, each individually simple and rugged in construction, these parts being capable of ready assemblage to furnish a unit operating over long periods of time with freedom from all difliculties.

With these and other objects in mind, reference is had to the attached sheets of drawings illustrating one practical embodiment of the invention, and in which:

Fig. 1 is a plan view of a complete unit with certain of the portions broken away to disclose underlying constructions;

Fig. 2 is a sectional side view taken along the lines 22 and in the direction of the arrows as indicated in Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view taken along the lines 3-3 and in the direction of the arrows as also indicated in Fig. 1;

Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary View of one detail of the apparatus;

Fig. 5 is a sectional view taken along the lines 55 and in the direction of the arrows as indicated in Fig. 4; and

Fig. 6 is an end view of a fragment of the supporting legs and wheels which may form a part of the complete unit.

As shown in these views, the unit preferably includes a deck portion I0 supported upon and braced by edge members II. These members (Cl. flit-25) may be in the form of angle iron and the deck may be provided bysuitable sheet metal. Brackets I2 are conveniently affixed to the underside of this assembly and'serve to support legs I3 and I4 by, for example, pivots I5. Couplings I6 are slidablymounted within slots I5 formed in the legs. These couplings maybe raised within the slots so as to align with the entrance portions of bayonet slotsl6 formed in the brackets I2. Therefore, when the legs are swung around their pivots so they are coextensive with the brackets these couplings may enter the bayonet slots and shift to positions within the base portions of the latter. Under these circumstances the legs are locked against movement. These couplings and the legs I3 may be folded or rocked around their pivots I5 to assume positions adjacent the underside of the deck I ll. Thereafter, legs I4 may be similarly manipulated so that an extremely compact structure is provided.

A handle I! is preferably welded or otherwise suitably secured to the legs I4. Wheels I8 may be suitably mounted upon a shaft I9 which has its ends extended into bearing members 20 secured one to each of the legs l3. Accordingly, by simply graspingthe handle I1, it is obvious tha the entire unit may be easily shifted.

Preferably adjacent that end of the unit which is supported by the legs I3, an opening is provided in the deck Ill. This opening receives a fire box which may be in the nature of a trough member 2 I formed with suitable openings for the passage of air and also through which ash residue may pass. A pan 22 conveniently receives this residue. This pan may be detachably supported by members 23 which'extend through certain of the openings. As will be appreciated when the structure is to be collapsed, the pan 22 may readily be removed and suitably stored, for example, within the body of the fire box 2|.

With a view to detachably supporting the latter so that when renewal of the fire box is necessary, this may readily be achieved, it will easily be observed that the upper edge of this unit may be in the form of a flange 24 overlying the angle members I I. Adjacent its corners, the flange may be interrupted to present V-shaped notches 25 as in Fig. 4. Through these and openings formed in the side frame members securing assemblies 26 may be extended. Consequently, the fire box will normally be rigidly retained against movement. However, when it is required that it be replaced, it may readily be detached from the assembly and a new unit substituted.

A grill unit preferably including longitudinally and transversely extending rods 21 is rovided for association with the fire box. These rods may conveniently be welded to each other or otherwise secured against relative movements. As especially shown in Fig. 3, the ends of the longitudinally extending rods may be ofiset as indicated at 28. Adjacent their opposite ends and as indicated at 29, they may not alone be offset but also the central rods are continued in the form of a handle 30. Thus, the grill preferably nests or functions as a supporting member within the area of the fire box. The latter, adjacent its upper edges, is formed with a series of openings 31. Through these the ends 28 of the rods may be selectively inserted. Consequently, a point of pivotal mounting is afforded around which the grill may be swung.

It follows that if the grill is detached from the fire box the ends 28 of the longitudinally extending rods may be selectivel inserted into one or theother group of openings 3!. Depending upon the selection, the handle 30 will lie either adjacent the left or the right hand side of the deck or else adjacent the outer end of the same. In fact, the handle might lie adjacent the inner end of the deck? This, however, ordinarily makes for an installation which is not capable of ready manipulation. As will be seen, a grill embodying the foregoing construction may have its parts arranged to suit the convenience of the user. A securing device such as a clip 32 may be associated with the handle and serve to engage under the angle irons or other supporting members for the deck. Therefore-with the clip in position-the grill will remain in any desired position.

From the foregoing, it will be understood that a unit is provided which is extremely compact and the parts of which may be so assembled that a collapsible structure is furnished. Accordingly, the unit may be stored to occupy a minimum amountof space but at the same time is capable of readily being restored to operative condition.

When so restored, a mobile device is furnished which may readily be shifted from one position to another as a consequence of the handle I1 and the wheels l8. When once shifted, it will be stable and rigid throughout its period of use. Also, in such use, a deck surface is furnished so that aperson will not be limited merely to the use of the grill element and have to have an adjacen supporting structure separately provided.

As previously brought out and according to the need of any particular installation, the grid or grill element may be mounted so as to be capable of being swung either from the end or from either side of the unit. This element may also be readily detached for purposes of cleaning the fire box. When the latter requires renewal, this may simply be achieved by loosening the couplings 26 and thereupon lifting the fire box from the deck well. By a reverse operation, a new fire box, may be substituted. The grill may be secured with respect to that fire box and the apparatus will again be ready for use.

Thus, among others, the several objects of the invention as specifically heretofore noted are achieved. Obviously, numerous changes in construction and rearrangements of the parts might be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention as defined by the claim.

I claim:

A grill including in combination a deck, a fire box connected to and extending downwardly from said deck, brackets also connected to said deck and extending downwardly therefrom, legs pivotally secured tosaid brackets at points adjacent the upper ends of. the latter, said legs being formed with longitudinally extending slots, couplings slidably mounted within said slots and projecting beyond said legs and said brackets adjacent their-lower ends being formed with downwardly extending bayonet slots to receive said couplings and maintain said legs against movement with respect to said brackets.
