SLOT ME IN (“SMI”) AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™

June 2017

Now the Australian continent has a tremendous amount if not the most number of extinct volcanoes (technically defined as ones that have not erupted in over 10,000 years) and no active ones. Well it did until this month when the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ erupted onto the scene with our official launch of this exciting new product. It draws its origins from the ancient Mayan and Inca chimineas of South America and later from Spain in its principle function used for heating and cooking, only with a modern twist of design, new materials used and manufacturing process involved.

How appropriate with winter now officially here in Oz that we offer this new and exciting “Aussie Chiminea” 100% Aussie made from 100% Aussie materials and 100% Aussie owned. Suitable to be used on patio’s including timber decking as it has 4 inbuilt legs that keep it above the ground surface (no need for any separate stand to rest it in which can be a hazard if knocked and possibly topple over causing injury or damage to people or property). With a low centre of gravity and using the conventional chiminea sand bed as a base for the fire to be burnt on the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ remains firmly anchored and stable directing heat upwards and outwards keeping you warm this winter and all year round, extending your outdoor entertaining hours, giving you, friends and family a great focal point to all gather around.

Precision laser cut from Australian 5mm thick BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ steel it’s built to take the harsh elements of the great Aussie outdoors and capable of burning a large fire in it to sit around and enjoy the warmth by and even cook on. It is ideally suitable for home use, bistros, pubs, clubs, wineries, bars, cafes, mancaves and anywhere a contained fire can be used outdoors to add warmth, charm, comfort, ambience and character.

Unlike cheap imported clay and cast iron chimineas which can crack, chip and break before your very eyes and are often made from dubious materials with little or no quality control or the cheap imported thin steel types that end up burning out and can’t hold a decent fire the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ is made from Australia’s finest steel. It will continue to be enjoyed year after year giving you real value for money.

Whether you choose to use it directly on your patio or deck and don’t require moving it or rather like the convenience of being able to move it around the choice is yours. Let’s face it with a fire bed of washed sand (it requires approx 15kg) and structure combined, it weighs a total of around 75.5kg, that’s not something you want to move on a regular basis. However if you do wish to move it around that’s where the great accessory of the SMI FIRE PIT/CHIMINEA DECK TROLLEY™ comes in so handy. Made from Australian 3mm thick BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ steel the SMI FIRE PIT/CHIMINEA DECK TROLLEY™ (in a smooth or tread plate pattern) allows you to position the SMI AUSSIE VOCANO CHIMINEA™ on top and move it easily by the aid of the 4 (100kg each rated) heavy duty concealed wheels underneath and with a non-scratching heavy duty polyurethane compound tread and ball bearing race construction. There is plenty of room to stack your fire wood on the trolley as well. Furthermore there is also the optional SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA FLUE EXTENSION™ which adds another 700mm in height (150mm internal diameter and 5mm thick also made from Aussie BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ steel) to the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ (which measures 1180mm high on its own by the way). Add the SMI FIRE PIT/CHIMINEA DECK TROLLEY™ at 120mm high (950mm x 950mm in surface area with concealed wheels x 4) with the flue extension and you have an impressive 2000mm of height, clearly directing any smoke etc. away from eye height. There is even an optional slip on SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA “RAINE” LID™ (with handle) for when not in use which helps keep the sand bed/fire base dry and ready for its next use if stored in the open.

Available now as a “special order” from authorized SLOT ME IN stockist’s the SMI AUSSIE VOLCANO CHIMINEA™ and its accessories will give you year after year of enjoyment. As we say here at SLOT ME IN…..”we make fire fun”.

Celebration 40th Anniversary

Universal “WEDGE” Australia Short End

January 2017

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the initial invention of the concept WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER™ (see full details in Latest News & Specials July 2014) we are releasing the new universal short ends that will now be standard release in both the Base Fire Pit & Ultimate Combo Kit versions as well as being offered separately. They retro-fit all existing WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER’S™ as well.

We have added or rather removed by laser cutting the map of Australia out of the “short” end of THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER™ symbolically representing our proud involvement using 100% Aussie materials, 100% Aussie manufacturing and a 100% Aussie owned product.

Just in time for this coming Australia Day to burn for Australia bright and strong. By the way we haven’t forgot Tasmania the isle is represented in the cut out too. It holds itself as a special place with Waz just as does the rest of Oz. Incidentally the drafting of the fire pit is now super enhanced as well, an accidental advancement you might say.

If you own an existing WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER™ and would like say only one end to replace one of your existing ones to show your true blue colours for Oz then we are offering them in single pieces.

A little bit of a sneak peep into some new products or rather an expanded range of THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER™ we will be releasing 3 new models all based on this one universal end released here but in 3 new lengths of 450mm, 900mm and 1200mm to complement the Ultimate Combo Kit which is close enough to being 600mm. That means you will be able to buy just the 2 sides of any of the 4 models 450mm, 600mm (existing), 900mm and the big one 1200mm and use a set of universal ends to suit your cooking and heating requirements or mix and match sizes by owning a couple of different length sides. These should be available in the first half of 2017 as we are completing an extensive testing and development of these 3 new models.

Available for $30.00 each from a stockiest near you (if stocked).

With postage anywhere in Australia for $60.00 each or $90.00 for 2.


Product Advancement

Rotisserie Support Brackets

January 2017

Following in the footsteps of the other two latest releases this month (see prior two here) we would like to announce the addition of the Rotisserie Motor Arm Extension to be now included in the rotisserie support bracket kit (4 pieces) which comes with the Ultimate Combo Kit. It replaces one of the smaller pieces in the original kit and allows the motor to be offset a full 150mm from the fire box edge thus allowing it to be cooler to run (see the full details of the Rotisserie Motor Arm Extension preceding this).

All 4 components in the kit here also have our unique additional feature of POZILIFT™ now, a rectangular hole that allows the use of the SMI Multi-Tool™ to either insert or remove them from THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER™ without the need for other tools such as a pair of pliers etc when the fire pit is in use. We recommend that the gloves provided in the Ultimate Combo Kit be used in conjunction with the SMI Multi-Tool™ when installing or removing the rotisserie support brackets as all four pieces have the POZILIFT™ hole locator for the SMI Multi-Tool™ to allow this. Best of all the price has remained unchanged and all components in the kit retro-fit all existing WEDGE FIRE PITS & CAMP COOKER’S™.

Available as a 4 piece kit separately for $50.00 from your nearest stockiest (if stocked).

With postage anywhere in Australia for $75.00


New Accessory

Rotisserie Motor Arm Extension

January 2017

Here we are releasing the new Rotisserie Motor Arm Extension (which by the way is included now in the Ultimate Combo Kit, forming part of the 4 piece rotisserie support bracket kit). As you know cooking with fire (correctly coals is not as easy as your oven at home, but far more fun and with better flavours). The main problem if we can call it that is people tend to use too much heat or have the fuel or too much of it incorrectly placed in THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER™ or similar when cooking a spit roast using a rotisserie which can transmit to the rotisserie motor and may effect battery performance in the battery models or wiring performance in the mains powered model. This also often happens on gas BBQ’s where the motor is mounted right outside the hood or close to the end burner.

With the new Rotisserie Motor Arm Extension (our invention here at Slot Me In) the rotisserie motor is now offset a full 150mm away from the fire box short end giving it better heat reduction uptake and better heat dissipation. You actually gain a little more cooking area too as you can now spread the coals out a bit further without the risk of getting the motor too hot further enhancing THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER’S™ features. Although only one comes with the Ultimate Combo Kit designed to be used at the motor end you can add one at the other end as well (handle end of the shaft) thus keeping the handle further away from the short end of the fire box and gain a bit more cooking area here as well, especially if grilling underneath the same time as using a rotisserie. Best of all it retro-fits all existing WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER’S™ and as we mentioned one comes in the Ultimate Combo Kit.

Available separately for $15.00 from your nearest stockiest (if stocked).

With postage anywhere in Australia for $35.00 for 1 or $50.00 for 2.
