AH HA. remember that wish I made for a reasonable water heating system to 
use for cleanup at events?  And how Baron David in Calafia had a system 
using charcoal chimneys and copper tubing?

Ok, there is a much more grand version of it on this link, the Red Neck 
Pool Heater.
Baron David uses a charcoal chimney and bendable copper tubing, running a 
coil down the charcoal chimney, with each end of the coil ending up in a 5 
gallon bucket of water.


Is the link for the object this guy made. I'll have to talk this over with 
Baron David later, and see if maybe we can't get an easily transportable 
thingie like this.  More and more we simply can't afford to rent halls for 
feasts or events, so we're using primitive sites.  If I had a -good- way to 
do cleanup that's less baling wire and chewing gum I'd be more inclined to 
cook at them. (Of course we still need to figure out the logistics hauling 
all the baronial gear out there, then making sure its all clean enough to 
haul back and put away).
