    Because I love to cook 'alfresco' I couldn't resist buying a paella cooking set a couple of years ago in Spain. Until last year we carried it in the motorhome and used it often but it can be a bit heavy on gas, which is not so desirable when in France or Spain, so we left it at home and got ourselves a Cadac Safari Chef which is so easy to set up, use and clean, plus I can use a paella pan on it!

    The one thing I didn't always like with the Cadac was that I like to stand when I'm cooking, spatula in one hand and a beer in the other! I have had it on the table, but that's not always convenient just as you need to serve up. That got me to thinking how I could raise it without getting a second table!

    Then it just kinda happened :rolleyes:, no sooner had I got the paella set legs out from the garage and it just came together. So I thought I would share in case anyone had some spare legs or wanted to get some and give it a go. No it's not me selling them on ebay (n)

    I should add that the the only holes I needed to drill were 3 on each of the legs to fit a bolt as a kind of locating pin. The holes are already on the Cadac legs so no messing it up required.

    I bought the stool/ table from Go Outdoors. Ideal height to cook and doubles as a stool or table when not being used for cooking.

    I did a similar job to this with my Beauclaire. I used an old video/camera tripod, aluminium construction. The legs were removed and a hole drilled in top of each for fixing bolt. They make a great set of cooker legs. The big advantage is that you can set them to varying heights (sitting or standing) and can be levelled on uneven ground. :)

    The legs on ebay look just about the same, I already had them and when I offered them up to the Cadac that it just sort of came together! As you have worked out I think, the drilled holes with a bolt through are to stop the legs swinging away.

    I'm pleased with the outcome. I won't bother with the legs when in a hurry or in an Aire for the night, but if on a campsite with all the normal outside stuff set up I think it will be useful. :)
