My left over wood gets stored inside the drum when travelling. I even use it on the existing built braai in a campsite. The sides keep the heat in and you hav...

Re: Aluminium canopies purpose

Remember that the more windows you have to let light in the hotter the inside of the canopy will be.
Less windows less heat.
Read camping/overlanding tips in members articles.
Look at ChrisF 's idea of having removeable doors for your pets comfort and no windows.
