Ever gone camping and wanted to build a campfire, but there is no good place to build one? How about just enjoying a nice fire on your patio? (provided such things are allowed in your location). The metal tub from a washing machine makes a perfect firepit. It contains the ashes, allows combustion air to flow to the fire, and with the addition of a bbq grate can be used to cook great meals. Add some legs to get it up off the ground, a heat shield to deflect the heat radiating from the bottom and you have a firepit that can be used in a wide variety of situations.
I built a portable brick oven pizza oven using another washer tub for the oven chamber. Take a look here.
So, you might be wondering what cookerwars really means. Simply put, it's an informal competition among good friends as to who can modify or accessorize a washer tub to make it more functional as a portable fire pit.
Feel free to take a look around the site, and if you get inspired to build a cooker, send us some pics. Join in the fun! We'll give you your very own picture gallery.
