I want a new firepit… calling it a firepit is misleading… I want a mobile cooking station that could accomodate a 30-50 person feast without need of a feast kitchen (or something that can compliment a feast kitchen).
For some reason cooking at event is one of the things that really excites me about the SCA. The potential of creating an authentic experience of the middle ages with food just does it for me.

I can’t imagine “building” a house at every event… but it’s impressive.
When SCA camping, trees are a luxury. Usually we don’t end up with any in our camping allotment. That and since we covet Eric space, trees are hard to come by. That means we either have to suffer in the sun (no fun at all) or make our own shade. Option two is the option of choice. There’s not a whole lot published about sunshades.
I’m a software engineer not a structural engineer. This means that although I can envision beautiful concoctions, I don’t know if they will stand up to the lightest wind. This also means that making my own sunshade has been a long (and ongoing) learning curve.

Also, we incorporated our need for coolers as “ice-boxes” which allow
us to place blocks of ice or dry ice in the top with shelves for the food
in them as the “base” of the kitchen, and then place a wood counter-top
over them and top that with folding kitchen boxes that are pre-stocked
with spices, paper towels, tools and utensils needed for cooking.

Cooler that doubles as seating and looks peri-oid.

Here’s a couple of backup, historical links to go with those instructions.
