    Gas Burner Wind Break

    Saw this a while back, and finally decided to give it a go to help the stove/BBQ burners on those windy days.

    Small piece of builder's strapping/bracing, cut to size, with the ends riveted together to form a circle.

    I'm not sure how big or how small I should have gone, so the first few trips will be the trial for this.

    Looks like a great idea

    Gary, I notice you have a swift cooker. I'm assuming there is no under mount oven on this model!
    Swift cookers were subject to a safety recall in 2015 https://www.productsafety.gov.au/rec...aravan-cookers
    but it was associated with the model with oven and principally involved instalations in a particular brand of offroad caravans, however all units were subject to recall.
    No oven no worries.

    Thanks for the heads up. This outside BBQ is just a two burner stove, but the inside cooker is also a Swft and is a stove/griller/oven. I'll definitely look into this recall.
