    Ferris wheel trailer

    A client came to us with an idea in mind and some pictures of something he’d seen in Brazil.

    Together we worked with him to create a ferris wheel to cook up to 8 baskets of meat at a time.

    A large ferris wheel set on a fully galv dipped and then powder coated trailer with mag wheels there’s a wood box at the front which acts as a work bench for loading the baskets. We also set the speed of the wheel able to be altered, stainless fire pit that has vents in the base to easily clean out the ash or add air to coals.

    Stainless and powder-coated custom signage makes it an amazing piece of theatre when it comes to cooking BBQ
