I'll yell out when we are doing ribs again Nugget.
Smoked foods are high on my fav Foods list.
Low and Slow cooked is the go. 12-15 hours + for pulled pork tongue

Hi Paul. I was lucky enough to score that motor and the 8 foot staino shaft off fleabay. Plus a pretty rough setup made from an old bath.
The old gent I bought it off said it came out of an old industrial laundry. Used to pull bed sheets thru a stream press.
Ya just can't stop it. I reckon I could mount it to a 4wd to use as a winch  big_smile
When I went to pick it all up I got a nice surprise, another motor. Not the same. It came with a 30cm pulley to gear it down but it's still too fast.
Next job is to make it portable... with 12 volt motor to take camping.

I have an old electric scooter I rescued from a scrap metal bin at work.
I figure if it moved a person down the street, it should spin a reasonable chunk of meat  big_smile

I like catching, cooking and eating these when out bush

This is a good feed for when relaxing at home in the backyard with a few hungry mouths to feed

redfin this is the one i have. its just the one for the bbq at home and you can make a stand for over the fire when out camping. for home we tried this one and the 240v one of these and found the 12v one to have more torque. its says its rated to 8kg but i doubt that. it would have to be VERY well balanced to turn close to 8kg

Am loving this but its making me feel hungry for some strange reason!

Also a big fan of slow cooking and when I get the chance Its nice to turn some of the local pests into a yummy dinner  lol

For ease of use and taste I reckon you can't beat the good old camp oven.
Just giving it a bit of a clean/season.

1376638239_101_7437_edited_for_gf.jpg

The result:

1376638313_101_7467_edited_for_gf.jpg

P.S. The camp oven was buried outside with coals under and of top of it to cook the bunnys and we just cleaned it up on the open fire inside the shearers quarters after cooking and eating. Have photos of the rabbits before they were prepared but thought it best not to "freak out the kiddies" with blood/guts etc  big_smile

Billy i sure hope you missed the Easter Bunny.

On a different note.
Would you let your kids play with a rabbit that lays chocolate eggs.
