I cut down the metal vegetable/lettuce/meat/cheese bins from an older refrigerator. (As recommened above I burned them out several times - the enamel has never come off) I find the rectangular shape packs better than the round pans. On overnight trips my small cooler fits in the pan. I cut it to just over 3" high. Very light weight.

Check out this grill, it folds to 1 3/4 inches and comes in 192 sq in and 267 sq in sizes, both under $40. The second link has an option for one with a lid and a carry case, its the red model:

SKRAZO INC - Collapsible Stoves, Charcoal Grills, and the Flip and Grill
Skrazo Incorporated: Flip N Grill

Here is another fold flat grill from a different manufacturer, $19:
Cypress Charcoal Grills, Portable Cypress Charcoal Grill

Finally this is the best deal I've seen on a traditional rafting fire pan w/lid, $149.99:

Wow Raftus, those flip n grills look great for that price. Have you used them as fire pans or just to grill? Are the larger ones also able to breakdown?

My buddy just made us a fire pan and the materials alone are barely under 80$. Wish I would of seen that a while back.

I don't have experience with any of them except the $150 one. When I was unemployed I surfed the web way too much. Here is one I forgot to post:

The World Famous Son of Hibachi

It is one of the cooler grills at any price. You put the coals in and light it in the closed vertical position and it acts like a charcoal chimney - so you get hot coals fast. Then grill normally and put it in its bag still burning hot and it snuffs itself out. No more waiting for the fire to die at the end of the night. It's about $80.
