In this excerpt from Episode 4 of Inventions from the Shed (2004), Alf gets a giant appetite. When a tin of Spam just won't satisfy him, he builds a giant portable barbecue.

Inventions from the Shed is a five-part documentary series on the driven, obsessive and wacky world of the backyard inventor.

Reflected in this clip is the reputation Australians have for their solution-focused inventions and 'can-do' attitude. The construction of the giant barbecue may also be a nod to Australia's love of 'big' iconically Australian things.
