  1. Ditto, on the list for purchase
  2. It's not rocket science @sotv If you look closely the joints are shall we say...... rustic. It withstood several Devon gales over winter so robust as well. Have a go the fun is in the learning.... I'm going to have a go at welding again when I build my UDS..... not welded for 30 years so should be a laugh...🤣🤣
  3. Mine so far..... added the base for a cob oven since this photo. 85% reclaimed so far.....
  4. Did a 6kg hand a few weeks back..... that went to 18hrs, stalled for 3, it was worth the wait though..... Pulled pork sliders were lush. It'll be worth it @Wilf
  5. Rather than hijack another thread as I've been asked a couple of times how I built my outdoor cooking area from mainly recycled materials, so here goes. I'll add some photos at the end. The frame is the only bit that I had to buy, I was going to use telegraph poles, but they leach tar/creosote and are notoriously hard to find so i bit the bullet and went for 3m 4"x4" fence post uprights, th rafters are 6"x2" tanalised construction timber. Its about 2.5m wide at one end and 2.0m at the other with a dog leg in the middle due to the Devon bank behind it. The frame was braced with 45° noggins screwed I to place as in photo, cost of framework was about £100. The roof is reclaimed wriggly tin from a farmer up the road, right place right time.... free. The pallets were from a local roofing company who were glad to get rid of them.... free, I broke them up with a pry bar and recycled all the nails. A pallet is about 1.2m long so I put in some 3x3" uprights mid span to fix the pallet planks too, had to do a bit of jigging about because of the bank behind.... they are protected so we cant touch them.....much. I put a concrete pad in the corner as I am building a cob oven this summer. Ok all the slabs are reclaimed and we got them from Facebook marketplace.... just had to collect from a couple of places.... 60+ slabs....... free. So that's the story so far, it is being extended to the right hand side by a further 1.5m which is where the UDS's and Webber will sit, but not yet as we need to get a digger into the garden for some more landscaping. The left hand side will be blocked in to half height and I will make some shutters for when the wind blows.... we are almost at the high point of our village so it gets windy, the right hand side will have a roll up canvas for an entrance.... Any questions ask away.... loving my cooking over fire journey. @Raptor72 tagged you.
  6. Will do, how do I post multiple photos @Smokin Monkey
  7. Shall I post up a thread in the right section Raptor so l don't hijack Wilf's thread?
  8. Shove a beer can up its chuff.... did one the other week with some beer left in kept it moist. The two will cook at different timings... go one or the other or take sotv's advice.....
