Serbian Fish Fryer

This outdoor fish fryer is home made and worked very well. What is it made of?

I have not run into that particular type of metal before, but it appears to be some type of anti-skid. You can see it has a definite pattern to it.

Just clicked in on this Bolas..I too think Aunt Bea wins the prize....I was gonna chime in on the Disk blade but I see my friend and neighbor PP Top (and others) beat me to it....Did you/they cook in the blade itself??? How/with what did they cover the (axle) hole in the center of blade..??

You may want to rethink that.
You can also convert an old washing machine into a chicken plucker

My current "braai" is made out of a tyre rim from truck, pretty cool! Bought it from a local that makes them in Botswana

The old round TV CRT tubes set on top of a 30 gallon trash can and topped with a wok made from the top of a 50 gallon steel drum also worked pretty well as a fryer. For most outdoor homemade cooking devices, draft control seems to be the major challenge; that's why I'm a fan of the big green egg, even though I make a lot of use out of my Weber-Stephen.
I try to minimize the amount of $0.50 per pound charcoal that I consume in making a meal. Ashes from a wood fire can often produce tastier food but, even though I'm retired, I do not use the wood ash method that often because of the time involved and paucity of appropriate trees on my property.
