Coolest thing I can make from a beer keg

Hi all, I picked up a nice beer keg at a yard sale the other day, I am looking for ideas of neat things to build it into. I have looked at BBQ's but I have several. I dont have a smoker so that may be in the works.
Anyone build something neat with one?
I was also thinking of something like a one wheeled motorcycle trailer.

cut it in half lengthwise, wire it for lights, hang it over your pool table.
