Food and Cooking / Re: Newspaper Grill - seriously!

I'm guessing OP " they're still available" link woke the bloke.  All the sudden it was 8 hits / hour. X 1
Or- Maybe not.
  But can you imagine trying to sell someone on the tasty benefits of grilling over an office waste bin? All seems a bit far fetched to me. Now Don't ask me if it was bit bots or hours of searching that found the way here: I don't know.

 It's probably my imagination failing me, but a hit of 3,4 honest folks in one spot praising this unit could sound like solid gold.

I'm really looking to the future. I need a distributor in SA for my New smoker/grill that uses old tires as fuel.

I think this guy is looking for $$$$ to start an operation in the States.  He isn't interested in shipping one over here unless you set up a distributorship.

You have your windas open? So, I reckon you'll have to act fairly quickly- unless
  ( I'd have to do some review to make sure I had not forgotten, and to gather proper chemicals- probably a tanning solution)

So to buy some time I would wash the thing in dawn detergent. Wring it out then salt it heavily, roll it up, bag- then pop in the freezer. How you tan it, imo, depends on what you want to do with it. Roll it up into a rawhide fetch toy for Max or make a cap? I could go look up the name of the tanning solution, it's not super expensive and could tan a good number of trespassers
+1 on wrapping and freezing it, but I would omit the salt.  Better to freeze it fresh and start from scratch when thawed. That's what I do with my rabbit hides.  Even in the freezer, salt dehydrates the skin.

Have you checked into "acid tanning"?  I believe there is a way to do it with the hair on, and all it takes is some battery acid from your parts store.

Did you send him a PM. Could be a demonstration model sitting in SA at an OP price :shrug:
 
My antique one is probably still in better shape than any of his "demo" units. :lol:

I have not used boric acid but have used borax and alum soaks for a few days.  The hides have to be pretty well fleshed and washed if dirty but I just put a coating of borax and alum paste on them every couple of days for about a week.  I did a small piece of deer hide last year and it came out pretty well.

    Max hates small furry and feathered creatures.  I'm a sorta of an animal guy.  Yes I've hunted and eaten small game.  So it's not a squeamish thing.  About 3:30 am the unmistakable sound of an animal that's gettin' killed through our open window.  Kelly didn't like waking up to Max tearing into it.  We hoped it wasn't a neighbors' pet cat.  Frankly, if you let your animal to wander into my fenced in backyard,  sorry for the pet but you need a lesson in animal care.  BTW the law here about leashing your pet applies equally to dogs, cats, iguanas, or chickens.

     Well the death scream finally stopped and when the sun came up, I found the coon.  Whew.  I didn't have to S.S.S. for a pet.  So onto the question.

I've cured snake skins with boric acid but can I do that with a mammal?  Something better?  I know about every animal has enough brains to tan it's hide but that stinks to high heaven.

I wouldn't mind replacing my 50 year old grill!  I hope this gentleman keeps us posted.
I went to his site, and he says his inventory is exhausted until 2019.  He suggested some other retailers in S.A., and at least two of them are no longer selling the grills.
I went to the link where I found one previously and they say "out of stock".
Looks like the trail is cold, at least until next year.

I just looked in my shed, and if I can do some quick math, the bundles of newspapers I have in there should be god for about 1,734 meals.  :P

But I guess rather than buy a new one, I should also sell my motor cars, since they will also be obsolete as soon as that new Swedish aero-car catches on. 
 :sarcasm:


I found one retailer so far:

Here's one in action. Polish sausage in 6 minutes. And I forgot about the filleted trout! Done several nice fish on ours.



Goodday y'all!

I am the "Mr SwannieBraai" as tthe ycall me here in South Africa.
I am the owner, importer and distributor of this unique "newspaper grill" in SA and other places.
I would love to meet and partner up with someone of company in the USA to have these distributed there bigtime.
Any suggestions from your side please?

My website is www.swanniebraai.co m, all contact detail are there or just mail me here, willie@swanniebraai.com

Thank you so much!

First, welcome to the forum!

We do have some pretty specific rules about advertising here but in this case, it appears you are here because you traced a link back to our site. I think it's ok since this topic was brought up by one of our members in the normal course of discussion. Thank you for providing more information about your grill.

Maybe try a "kickstarter" campaign to raise funds to begin importation.
