Thanks Guys, good tips, We only brought the "deluxe model" next time we'll bring a light weight substitute for Mid-Summer trips.

Galvanized mechanic-style oil drain pains work nice. Lightweight, tall lip, good size. I rarely build a fire in summer anymore anyway - - don't need the mess. (Grin)

As for emergency use, of course, if it's cold and someone swims, build a fire. But cold water and fire bans usually don't coincide (Grin again).

Since Westwater is in Utah, you will need to use this site instead:

Fire Restrictions

A galvanized livestock feed pan from your local farm and ranch store also works well as a lightweight firepan.
