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

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!

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.
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!

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

Mmmm Tri tip! I need some time to clean and package mine still. Looking forward to some action shots!
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.
