    [​IMG]   Get you mind out of the Gutter!...This looks like the Coolest Toy... 

    My kids had a Baby Swing that looked similar. Wind it up and...Back and Forth for 30 minutes. One of you Engineers could figure it out...JJ

    I have been intrigued, already started parts shopping Gotta LUV harbor freight.

    Hand Winch


    Pulley


    Jaw and eye swivel or Ball Joint


    3/4" black pipe.


    and a round piece of steel about 6" diameter x 1/4" thick. I have this piece already.

    The only thing I cant find is a good grate. Weber has some nice round greats but none have sides

    I wanted to give this a bump, I am finally getting around to doing this, I just ordered some stuff and will start this week, hopefully in time for our Killens Pond Camping trip in a few weeks.

    Let's just say that I was inspired by a few Porterhouses on a tripod last camping trip.

    I'll start a new thread and post a link to that on this thread

    I just saw a show where they were cooking a pork dish. Hmm it was some traditional pork dish I'll have to try and remember what it was. Looked good!

    My smart @ss buddy said I thought you already had a Schwenker, my reply was,  "I do, but this one holds your meat better".

    Hopefully it will come out nice enough to keep!

    I'm sure if you are careful and use protection, you can schwing your schwenker over a Mr. Buddy!

    You don't want drippings on a Mr. Buddy.
