seems like everyone is pretty much on the same page about ammo boxes. I also meant to mention another reason they are so good, other than being cheap, solid, dry, they make excellent garbage conatiners when they are empty. For example, I use 2 for charcoal. as soon as they are empty, start crushing everything that wont burn, and put it in the boxes.
while it is indeed true, it takes a hot fire to reduce trash/food scraps, your fire should be in a fire pan, and IMO ALWAYS , regardless of regs. this allows for an easy clean up, and again all the ashes/junk from the fire go directly into the ammos.
