    Have my annual Messabout boat gathering this weekend at Paulina Lake. So decided I better come up with a new cooking device. Been wanting a Schwenker so here it is!





    Not completely finished. Still have a few things to do. Rope and caribeners are temp.

    Looks cool. What are you going to use instead of the rope?

    I am proud to know you sir, great job

    Remember that the spinning is just as important as the swing, use a fishing swivel.


    SWIVEL

    You gotta break that puppy in with Schwenkbraten, "dose r duh rools"!

    Schwenkbraten

    Can't wait to see it in operation.

    Thank you! We'll see how this goes! I have to get the grate good and seasoned this weekend so it doesn't rust up. There will be multiple cooks on it!

    Thanks Al! I have a couple racks of spares that I'll be cooking up Friday night on it. Going to be some tasty grub!

    Swivel me Timbers! Yeah for now I had planned on getting a swivel snap hook. The fishing swivels locally aren't anywhere near big enough. Time to get a schwenking!

    That looks like it's going to be fun to use and also be a topic of conversation.

    Looking forward to some action and money shots!

  15. Haven't had schwenks and brotchen since my days in Germany, do you have an authentic rub recipe?

    This go around I bought the peeled Tri tip. It was $2 more a pound at $4.35. Bulk pack with 18.5 pounds. There were 6 roasts in the pack. I'll probably just buy the peeled from now on.
