Food and Cooking / Re: Newspaper Grill - seriously!
« Last post by Unknown on Today at 10:11:11 PM »
I'm a working class boy from KY. I have seen such yardarts before. I do understand that the fires in these will cook a meat dish.

So, on the one hand my commentary is based on the quaint notion of cooking food over balled newspaper in a recreational situation.  Of course, One can imagine that there could well be a necessity of use for these units in urban areas of South Africa. On the other hand I am drawing attention to the " tire burning" that continues under the most horrifying of circumstances..... I won't give a webM of a necklacing but it is not as pretty as your tire craft

Coon skins are a giant P.I.T.A. to flesh properly for home tanning.  ALL of the fat must be removed completely and.......to top it all off, they are one of nature's greasiest critters.  :coffee:

There are several YouTube videos available on the subject.  Like this one.....

You might like this.  Fast forward to 6:25 'cause there is a commercial ad at the beginning, and the gillie suit is kinda dumb, but keep watching.

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.

The Safari/Swannibraai paper burning grill actually does work. First thing I ever cooked on it was a pair of pork blade steaks. Juicy!!

In the mean time, here's something you can do with your old tires.   ;D

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:
