Skottle Grill - Tembo Tusk

Skottles are on back order with Tembo Tusk.  Tembo Tusk estimates that they will be back in stock toward the end of October.  Orders placed now will ship in the order received once we receive our next order of Skottles. 

The history of the Skottle comes from the South African farmer and finding a secondary use for old harrow discs by turning them into an outdoor cooking utensil they could use while out in the fields.  The Skottle caught on with the public in the 1940s and 50s and is now synonymous with grilling in South Africa.  Anything that can be cooked in a pan, skillet or on a grill can be cooked in a Skottle.  Bacon, eggs, sausage and hash browns is a great example for breakfast. Lunch or dinner can be as easy as stir fry veggies, steak, and chopped potatoes.  There is no better way to cook Boerewors Sausage (South African Farmer’s Sausage) or any other sausage for that matter.  Nothing tastes better than a thick cheese Quesadilla grilled on a Skottle. As you can see, there is very little you can’t cook on a Skottle!
The TemboTusk Skottle comes pre-seasoned and can be used immediately.  The easiest way to recondition the Skottle is with olive oil or any cooking oil and heat on a gas or charcoal barbecue to 450 degrees or until the oil on the metal stops smoking.  Like a Dutch oven or cast iron pan, the more the Skottle is used the better the non-stick cooking surface becomes. 
The TemboTusk Skottle  is designed to be used with an inexpensive Coleman style single burner and a gas bottle.  The burner simply hangs in the frame welded to the bottom of the Skottle pan.  Typically a Coleman burner uses a disposable 16oz gas bottle for fuel.  With a proper adapter a larger propane bottle can be used. A Coleman one-burner produces 10,000 BTUs of heat energy which is more than adequate for use with the Skottle.
