No 5 minute riser?

What are you going to use this for?  Frypan?

Hi Graham.

Well,  this is as quick as a five minute riser for me. Only problem is durability. But i can live with this.  It will be used with a hot plate, same as Martyn's.  Except that it will be rectangular.  Still searching for a plate as big as the base.  It doesn't show, but that tank is riveted with hot rivets. Quite nice looking.

There's two wheels underneath. And i hope to make two handles on two of the four pillars which will support the plate, to use it kind of like a wheelbarrow.

I'd be interested to see how long a kg of dry wood takes to burn as an indication of how many BTUs you can generate.  I looked at J tubes before but couldn't see that enough wood could be burnt to deliver the BTUs for a wok without a riser that was impractically high for cooking.
