I'm pretty freaking excited about this. As I revealed at the meeting, I've been watching a lot of 18th and 17th century cooking things. So while it's not period accurate, it will still be really awesome to have a place to cook over a fire, and adjust a pot over it, vs just cooking on something propane for those thing. Keeping away from the modern things helps keep the vibe! I'm really hoping that this will be ready for our next event!

The metal pan is sitting in the back of my truck. I picked it up yesterday. Will hopefully start working on the frame this weekend.

Work in progress. Went with a 24x36 firebox, figuring this would be used in conjunction with the current half barrel rather than instead of it. We can continue to use the barrel for large meat items and use this for anything in cast iron for the large feasts,

Nice job Faellon! I assume the main idea for this was for places that dont allow ground fires, so well done providing what the Clann needs when the Clann most needs it.

My rationale was a bit more selfish in that I'm tired of having to bend down over a ground fire to cook 😄

Do hooks come in any letter other than "S"?

It was the adoption of Latin letter shaped hooks which marks the major demarcation between pre-literate ogham using Celts and post-Latin Irish and explains why the former were so skinny. For years Celts tried to employ Ogham shaped hooks but their pots and cauldrons kept sliding off and landing directly in the fire. It was probably through the accidental discovery of the C shaped hook (probably a bent ogham hook crushed under a fallen cauldron) which led to the development of the classic E shaped hook (also seen in its W and M forms). Some archeological finds of what appear to be J hooks may actually be the remains of lower case " f " hooks which have been found in association with what we assume to be connective O "hooks" to extend the length of the chain. The development of the S hook was slow, and came only after years of trying to employ a Z hook without burning dinner.
