Hey Jeepdad, nice looking table you got...made me look up some pics of the setup a friend and I built for my parent's Tennessee place. We love cooking outdoors there, always plenty of windfall oak to burn.

Uprights are 1 1/4 coldroll, mounted in pipe set in concrete, we've since added a grill on the same 3rd upright the swing arm is on.



A roasted chicken from the dutch oven...

Double hangar on left is a lid holder


Pit boss checking to see if we got it right Laughing



Good food over an Ocober fire...heading that way for a week next Sat, Can't Wait !



It all tastes good when this is the view from the picnic table...

AltoonaFlyer that is a great cooking area/fire pit you have there. I just moved into a place that has a good fire pit. Yours gives me some ideas. Smile Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Beertooth,
I finally got the pics working Rolling Eyes
I wouldn't put as many hooks on the crossmember if I did it again...2 or 3 would be plenty, the chains/hooks provide plenty of adjustment. I find we use the swingarm hook and swingarm grill the most. It's nice to just pull it out of the fire to check the pot.
On the other hand, you can also pull the engine out of most anything that will fit under! My friend never has built anything too small! I'm told in a few years I'll have to go set it up each spring cause Mom's having a hard time carrying the pieces Very Happy

Some are sycamore, some are oak. They last three or four years before fungus, bugs, etc starts on them. When they get bad, I cut them up and put them on the firewood pile, then I make some more.

The fire pit has the shallow portion where I cook and the deeper, round part for bigger fires (to just watch and provide coals for cooking). I guess it's shaped like a keyhole if you look at it from above.

I also use a round dutch oven stand (you can see it in the picture) that I made from a disc blade for cooking with charcoal briquettes...it's easier to control the heat for biscuits.

Steve
