Rock and Roll Barbecue BBQ  | The Forest Kitchen | Off Grid Log Cabin Build, Ep.5 S1

The most difficult part of building the forest kitchen this week was digging up and moving heavy rocks into place to build the off grid stone barbecue near the log cabin.

The heaviest of the stones was easily over three hundred pounds so I needed to use levers to roll them into place. Because this is one of the first times I’ve built anything out of stone, I’m using a slipform technique similar to the method used by the Neerings on their off-grid homestead in the mid 1900s.What I learn building this simple barbecue will be invaluable once I start the next cabin – a workshop/shed/guest cabin that I’ll build into the hill alongside the driveway using stone, cordwood, horizontal logs and other natural materials.
In the second half of the video, I talk about the unfortunate disconnect from nature in today’s society. We’ve been taught to conquer nature rather than live with it, and I show examples of the nature that I interact with. After that section, my, Joe Robinet, Doug Outside and Drenalin Adventures paddle into the backcountry of Algonquin Park to fish for brook (speckled) trout.
