I found an old BBQ dumped on the side of the road. I am going to make a heat bead table out of it for a friend.

That takes most of the effort away. Simple and effective.

Just be careful with the timber on the sides. If not careful, they will burn  Grin Grin

Just ask Dave   Tongue

Very good.  I'll need to keep an eye out for an old BBQ.  My fire pit is great but the bending is a bit painful these days.

On second thoughts, I have an old welding table with the clothes drier sitting on it that would fill the bill admirably.  Now to convince The Boss.

Thanks Brian but I managed to move the old welding table down to the fire pit and have it set up in a sort of fashion.  I need to get a better arc mesh system going tho upon which to sit the ovens..  I went into the metal traders and they wanted $50 for a 6 x 3 sheet of 50 x 50 mm mesh and they wouldn't cut it so I'll have to scour the dump.

I don't suppose the present set-up will change the taste of my belly pork entry (soon to come).

Watch this space.

Hi Seamus, the recycle shop at the local tips sell the bbq grill plates for about 3 bucks each. They are nice and sturdy.

Gotta pick The Boss up tomorrow and bring her home for the weekend so will check out the Cairns Buy Back place on the way home.  The Boss has two more days of treatment next week — ending six long weeks of it.  We're going to try and do the belly pork entry on Saturday.

Cheers

Bit of a shuffle around this morning and starting to get everything into one space now.  Just need to start using it all again.  I suppose this will be enough to break the big drought up here at "Australia's Rain Capital".  I've never seen the yard so brown in the last 30 years.

Cheers

Very brown up here in Cairns as well, Seamus. Your new set up should help your crook back. Looking good.

Neat idea! My son was throwing out a basic old BBQ recently. It should still be there. Thanks.

Do they come with anything to imitate legs on the chinese ovens Derek? Or do you have to make them your self? Also did you order it online or can you buy them local somewhere? All the local camping shops got smashed by the floods and are still setting back up.

I bought this one online from Cabelas in the US.  wasn$25 off when I ordered mine.

http://www.cabelas.com/

Just checked the shipping and it is currently about to get on a plane and head this way.

They are just a flat table with the windbreak around them.
