Redneck AR

If you use beer cans as an AR, you must be a redneck. Wanted to get higher in the dome for a direct coffee rubbed turkey for the Christmas Party tonight.  These are holding so far - cut a little notch in then so they would stay on the fire ring.  Keep your fingers crossed. Sure hope Santa is good to me this year.imageimageimage

  • Those look like aluminum.  Seems the fire would melt them down.

    You scared me VI - I looked on the net and they say the melting point of an aluminum can is 1220 degrees F.  They are still holding.  I hope an AR is in the big square box that my wife has in her closet so that I can move up to the big leagues.

  • You won't be disappointed. When I finally broke down and got one it completely changed the game for me and my cooks. So many more options.

    Gosh Bob.  I read it somewhere on the Internet, so it must be true.   :-B

    Abe Lincoln said 69% of quotes and facts on the internet are true and not completely made up. Who doesn't trust Honest Abe??

    Cook is already done.  90 min - 180 in the thigh - almost too easy. Best of all, my redneck AR did not melt!imageimage

  • I think you have the temps right, so the inter-webs were fairly accurate. I used the same set-up with some stainless steel exhaust pipe I had lying around, worked just fine. 
    I found fire bricks to be more stable and one brick can be cut into three pieces, pretty simple solution for <4$.

    that's even better than my solution but most of my beverages come in glass...

     

    I used four stainless steel bolts that I had in the garage along with eight nuts and washers, works perfectly!

    The cook came out great,  I put the legs and thigh back on afterward for a few more minutes.  Everything is carved up and ready.  I bet the turkey will be the first to go at the party. Flynn (the dog) loved the scraps as I was carving on the meat slicer.  We live in Georgia so yeah, we are official rednecks although transplanted.
