Very cool and a great price. Did it look like the welds would hold up to cooking on it over a fire?
Welds? I didn't see any welds!
Seriously, the pieces fit tightly and if it's welded they may spot weld the whole thing at once. Cutting one apart would reveal the construction. The actual use of this product is to put hot pots and pans on it, so I would guess a wood/charcoal fire wouldn't ruin it. I would put some tiny holes in each tube to bleed off pressure and not rely on the connection points have any gaps.
If I get back up there in a few weeks, I may just go ahead and pick a couple of them up and try it out.

Tastes like chicken.
Smells like ass!
I was so impressed with ownst1100's cooking setup I made my own. Mine isn't as involved as his, I simply wanted a wind block for my stove and a convenient food-prep area for when picnic tables are not available. I thought the positioning of rear-bike-mount made a lot of sense. It's a great work height. Also, I wanted mine to be very small when folded, which it is.
Shown stowed on my top box, a Pelican 1550. Folded dimensions (appx) 12.5" x 10" x .75". Also shown is the ABS rear platform I made to create a bit bigger footprint for better stability:
Takes less than a minute to set up.
Other uses are on the tailgate of the Land Cruiser when 4 wheeling, and it's small and light enough to fit into a backpack for mountaineering.
Thanks ownst1100 for the inspiration!
Nice work, ElMartillo! I like how that turned out.
Looks great well done, now you have been bitten when is version 2 then 3 coming out
In a hurry I make a grill bottom from aluminum foil, cover with the same, and cook. Lots of butter or fat keeps the contents from burning. But your grill makes sense and is small and portable. Might look into this, or make my own. Great thinking!
Come to think of it, the Ford Motor Company used to make small grills inside the engine compartments of model A's and T;s back when roads were dirt and you traveled for days. Someone could make a grill for the motor of air cooled bikes? You could heat/cook food while you rode?

Thanks, it's just about what I was shooting for!
Well, I gotta put this one to the test first, take it on a coupla trips.
After that, we'll see!
Seriously, it's close to what I need. I definately want to keep it simple.
Well done sir!
Thanks, but the real kudos go to ownst1100 for his original design.
MSR Whisperlite International (Run on 87 octane) with windshield and GSI Halulite cookware.
Ive found that the aluminum windshield for the Whisperlite is more than sufficient for wind coverage. I see a lot of the post have very large windscreens, but I guess coming from hiking/backpacking before I got into motorcycling, I was more concerned about weight.
MSR windscreen is all I use but..... I'm jealous of these fabricated pieces of engineering.
Think El Martillo is related to Ownst
For a weekender, I tend to bring either pre cooked rice sealed in an air tight bag, teamed up with a can or two of Tescos chicken or beef curry, it cooks nice and fast, saves fuel, and goes excellently with beer.
I never bother with breakfast anyway, so my breakkie, is Tescos one cup French filter coffee.
The coffee is far superior to the instant stuff eg Nescafe etc, and of course acompanied by a a couple of ciggies.
Funny, while visiting the UK I heard some English relatives of mine refer to instant coffee as "American coffee". Couldn't be further from the truth. I saw more instant coffee in UK and EU than I have ever seen in the US. I refused to drink it while I was there too.
Never heard instant referred to as American... most strange - Wonder if it's a WWII hang-over?
Hah! I'd have to say the same. I've seen more instant coffee in Europe than I ever have in America.
But we've got instant tea!
