May not understand what this old gentleman is saying but I sure do like how and what he is cooking.  Cheesy



I reckon a certain Rob Doolan could make up one of the cooking apparatus.  Wink

Can remember making plough disk plates during my apprenticeship although they were not made for deep frying just slap the steaks on the oiled sides and Bob is your uncle. Cheers

Yes, easy to make, the only drawback I can see is it doesn't have a height adjustment to control the heat, might make one for Alstonville.

Working in the bush I often saw blokes cooking meals in a shovel held over the fire.

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd

Decided not to make this, not something I would use and cooking in all that oil, nah.

I agree Rob. 

The original video is good as it shows an alternate way of cooking but is it suitable to all I would say no.

I think what you could cook on it could be very limited.
