hi jasonb,ive decided to throw my now broken old two burnerstove away,and just buy a bbq plate and pot rack to put on the open fire on the coals,the heat from the coals seem to heat up food so much quicker,that is my exsperience,and of course thats if your allowed to have open fires at the location your at,but i would still have the gas can portable stove,just incase you cant have the open fire,cooking toast over the fire is good two,and quick.you cant beat the taste of open fire cooking,[hey derek]lol,hope it helps. :grin:

yeah that helps a bit ,ive sat down last night and designed one bbq which when folded will be about a mtr long and about a ft wide ,with 4 legs which just slide in and are adjustable for height and has a wind break and heat sheild ,now ive gotta make it but its gotta be strong but as light as possible and take the heat ,so ill heave a go and see what happens

Unfortunately I can't find a pic of our BBQ, but hubby is a boilermaker so made up a heavy steel plate with fold up legs to put over the fire, not sure of the dimensions or what grade steel it is, I'll have to ask him for you.

steel for your bbq's

Postby shermo » Tue Jun 12, 2007 3:13 pm

The general grade of steel will be mild steel same as your home bbq plates.

Most people will make these out of an 6-8mm plate.
So Jason if you make one a foot wide and a mtr long outta 6mm plate the plate alone will weigh 14kg - not including the leg weight.

A good idea for such a long plate is leave half as a full plate for bbq's and the other half cut as a grill for open fire cooking in fry pans and billies and so on.

Dont use anything thinner than 6mm plate or it'll buckle to the shizen (trust me I thought I was smarter than my foreman and ended up coming back with my tail between my legs).

I'm looking at making a small one up myself soon.

What do i want more - rear bar for the 'trol or a bbq plate :P
