Wow Bob! Thanks so much! That looks perfect. I think the L legs with lock-ins would be better- I really like the way the grill fits on it too.

Does the offer stand if there's no water? Either way, we'll run something else. Since it's a gift, I hate to be picky, but a lid would be nice!

As a long time reader of the Buzz I finally registered a while back and decided to chime in on this one as my first-ever post. I am including a few pictures of my homemade fire pan. It is a nested 2-piece pan that fits inside of a rocket box with room for ashes (2 3# coffee cans), grills, collapsable shovel, scraper, gloves and a couple of 4# bags of charcoal. I friend of mine built this for me long ago and it is still going strong after many river trips and southern Utah camping trips. It exceeds the Grand Canyon size requirements and has been approved by the ranger on 2 Grand trips. With the new elevated fire pan requirements I will have to fabricate some legs to replace my 6-rock method but this is project for later. One nice thing about this setup is that most raft and cataraft frames are configured for rocket boxes so you might even be able to pawn this off to a friend's boat. Plus it keeps the grime contained so you don't have to worry about where to strap down a messy pan. I included a schematic with dimensions in case any of you find this design worthy.

I like that idea! it seems very light and efective, I will make one like that for my next project. I think you could weld 4 nuts on the bottom of the pan, one in each corner and make some screw on legs. Maybe even 5 and put one in the middle for support. it wouldn't add much weight at all. The one I just finished weighs 40 lbs!

ric, I might take you up on that, I think I might try to manufacture this.

I'm wishing I had seen EverCat's design before I built mine. I just copied the NRS model including a top made of steel as well so that I can cook with the D.O. at the same time as the grill. It is a little on the heavy side but few firepans are light anyway. All the tools tuck inside including the legs and grill.
