DIY firepits...ever make one or more? :)

Post by Breezey Breezey on Sat May 28, 2016 9:24 pm

Today, we got the main part done. Not bad for home made and less than $10. I am painting it and I do believe the paint is the most expensive part of the whole thing. lol

Ummm...why leave it looking undone and not nice looking? when comparing the done to the undone...the painted and done is much nicer looking.

I was just thinking I'm not sure I would want  it painted if I was going to use it as a fire pit.

So what did you make it out of? The bottom looks like the legs of a desk chair. Is the top part a drum from a washer? Very Creative!

I used paint for high heat... but, notice it's not staying on once the pit has been used. lol
I told the guy at the hardware store what I was doing with it.
What is the actual purpose of that paint then?

I would think you'd have to use something like baked on enamel.

You guessed what it is, but most people don't have a clue. lol I am not as creative as the person who posted about it. lol

The enamel paint I used specifies it's for wood furnaces, grills, etc...

Hmm. How long did you let it dry? Did you prime the surface? I would think the inside of the "pit" is stainless steel, which may be more difficult to get enamel to stick to. I'm just guessing here - you're the expert. taunt

Past the point of caring and just happy it works. smile2

DIY firepit and now... I have seen a DIY booyah cooker.... 55 gal drum, dryer drum and wood stove piping. lol  It has a pure oak cover too.
This is not something I would have guessed by seeing it..not totally...because the one I saw in person is really nice looking.

Breezy, I still don't know what booyah is, but that looks suspiciously like a 55 gallon drum with a stovepipe attached to it.

We'll start here...not sure what that booyah maker has as a pot, but the one I saw... can you guess?.... It was the drum from a washing machine! Lmao!!
And the one I saw looked nice...solid oak cover.....

Well...I don't know exactly.... I just know I have never had chicken stew that tasted so good! This was an ordeal!... approximately seven or eight hours of preparing and cooking...so many ingredients! and home grown (raised) chickens! smile2

For stews and soups, the slower and longer you cook it the better. You never want to boil it, as most of the vitamins in the veggies lose their effectiveness when cooked above certain temps. Same with chicken; slow cooking at low temperatures help break down the tendons, while high heat toughens them up.

Plus, low, slow heat allows the flavors of all the various ingredients to merge, so that the final product becomes something more than just the sum of the parts.

pie iron, pudgy pie iron or jaffle iron, is a cooking appliance that consists of two hinged concave, round or square, metal plates on long handles.
Pie irons were popular with campers in the 60's and 70's in the US. Called "tonka toasters," recipes called for cutting the crusts from white bread and placing the long-handled iron in the coals of a camp fire for the time estimated to form a golden-brown crust. Canned pie filling was the most popular filling, though other combinations of meat/egg and vegetable filling recipes were circulated as ideas for camp food.
