Grilling with Local 6 Illinois Member Gust Johnson
Local 6 IL member Gust A. Johnson wasn’t going to
settle for just any grill for his backyard barbecues. The
grill (pictured right) is built of fieldstone collected by
Johnson on trips to northern Wisconsin and Michigan’s
Upper Peninsula, and features two grill shelves and a pair
of baking ovens. Each stone was hand split and chiseled to
fit 3/4" tolerances and is finished with grapevine joints.
Exquisitely crafted from the bottom up, the grill is topped
by a hand-poured concrete cap. He built the grill to commemorate
his mother’s 65th birthday.
