Default Small camp pit

Here's a little pit I make out of a 15 wheel rim. The grill adjusts up and down and can be swung out of the way

Looks great KenCo.

If you don't mind I will save the pics and fab one myself. Great use for horseshoes also. A friend of mine is into horses. I will ask him to get me some from his shoer (ferrier?).

Thanks for the idea.

not a problem, Moe. I sell these for $100.00 each. We also make them out of semi truck wheel rims with longer legs and 2 wheels for mobility

At $100- each, you oughta be able to hire a Mexican to fab & paint them and still turn a nice profit.
Then, you can move into designing one with an acme threaded rod for infinate heat adjustment at a slightly higher price.

No thanks, franz, like the guy said, " If ya want it done right, ya gotta do it yourself. ". Also, the grill is adjustable up and down with a sliding collar and tightening bolt

Make sure you use stainless on the nut and bolt, if you use steel they will rust like a MF after the first hot fire. You should use 308 or 309 rod or wire to weld stainless to carbon steel. It will minimize brittleness in the weld and should eliminate all cracking.

Looks great. If I was a useless suburbanite I'd spent a C-note on one.

Shade just best hope Mrs Tree don't go to thinkin how nice one of those would be on the traveling pony rig, or he's gonna have to do some work.

Do you offer the environmentally friendly charcoal lighter option for an additional $9.95 so folks don't have to use that smelly lighter fluid?

Marko's gas grill system is superior for chicken cadavers.
