    What's the reason for cooking a bit more thoroughly, are they wormy?

    Not too phased by gamey bucks, chamois snags and stews will be a novelty here. Slow roasted legs sound right up my alley!

    Thanks mate I'll look up that make, never heard of the six o'clock setup, guess it's good for not obscuring the target.
