    Cooked a whole chicken in there yesterday. Took about 2 hours and ran out of fuel. Had to rummage through the firewood for the house to find some dry hardwood. A bit of ash made a fine smokey taste on the outside of it.

    Phase 9. Refinement

    As I've been using it I've noticed a couple of flaws

    1. The chimney opening is too large so too much heat escapes too easily
    2. The "door" is just a sheet of steel
    3. I probably cut the fire grate a bit low meaning after one load of charcoal the fire doesn't get enough air due to ash
    4. I'll probably get a coring bit and add a separate smoking box to the left hand side of the fire.
    5. See point 1, too much smoke would escape at the minute
    6. I've to order to porcelain grills from the states that cost about $80 prior to shipping and import tax. The current grills only work for large pieces of meat







    Don't mind the Lord of the Rings, To Kill a Mockingbird etc., this is the greatest book ever written

    Cost wise Redknapp, about €50 all in I'd say.

    Bought some sand and cement mix bags from the local hardware store. €8 x 3
    The steel cost I got from a friend. €5
    I got the grates out of old cookers that were to be recycled. €0
    The bricks at the front were in the house when we bought it. €0
    The floor leveller was in the garage. €0
    My father got the fire bricks from some old radiators. €0
    I bought a trowel in a poundshop type place. €5
    Herself bought the fire grate but not sure to include that or not. €15

    Any missing tools I borrowed like angle grinders.

    So yeah, food excluded about €50

    Still need to work on the door and create less of the gap in the flue - fire burns out too quickly/too much heat escapes. Just means I need to burn more fuel but the taste of the food is unreal
