Again not a tool for the garage, but it was made in the garage and it allows me more time in the garage. but it is a tool to help you cook and give wifie an evening off.
At first I must say it does not look like much. An old 20L steel paint drum. But if you look closer you will see the side is cut open and with the aid of 3 hinges it can open and close.
Next clue is a battery powered rotisery (again a word I spell so badly wrong not even the spell checker can find the correct spelling) motor on the lid and a few extra holes in the lid.
And that is it. Inside is 3 trays for coals, made by cutting up one extra lid I had and pop riveting it to the side on 3 levels. Here I have 2 deboned chickens cut up into equal sized pieces. that takes about 90 minutes to cook. So 90 minutes longer I can be in the garage as this method of braai-ing does not require any supervision. Place the coals on the shelves, stick the chicken inside, switch the motor on and set your timer for 90 minutes and back into the garage, or open a frosty four you and a nice bottle of red wine and enjoy a beautiful South Africa Autumn evening with wifie.
The few holes in the lid is so you can move the chicken closer to the coals for the last 10 minutes to give it a nice browning.
