Nice, but $130 nice?

That got me too. But no reason one couldn't take this idea and run with a similar homemade one.

Yea but laser cut stainless? It's goIng to cost that much to duplicate it, unless you just happen to have a laser cutting machine, frre computer design time and stainless laying around.

My only issue with it is needs a cover for transporting and storage. I can just see flies all over it every time you stop,

Especially after grilling some steaks on it.

I may put it on my wish list for Fathers day or Birthday.

It's going to be covered in dust anyway, what's a few flies? :)

That's why I'd want a cover over it.
The flies just add to the flavor.
But dust is just too crunchy for my pallet.

Wonder if it would fit under a tire cover?
I think the one I have is too tight!


How you doing BS. Been a while.

This week I've been working in an engine powered water heater shower for the wife.

What, like 15 years or so? :shock:

Saw Joe Darlington in Moab this year (though he came to regret the trip for other reasons), maybe you should make the trek one of these years.

Was trying to get my Rodeo back on the road for both Uwharrie and Moab this Summer but missed them both by a few hours of having it ready.
So I'm building an off road camping trailer to pull behind it next year. Might have it together by Fall Uwharrie. But I don't know.

To do it right will take a conservative effort and copious amounts of cash.

I can machine these.. but realistically 140 isn't a bad price
