Crooked River Whiskey. Not for everyone.
The middle legs give it good support. We have done two 12 inch & two 10 inch DO stacks with no problem. The fire blanket is key when you are on soft sand. Keeps the bolt legs from sinking in. It's also easy to level the legs by either unscrewing them a little or slipping a small rock under the legs. I like that I can shrink or enlarge the pan to fit what I'm cooking. I had Partner weld the hex nuts on for me, so it was very nicely done. I had a neighbor try to weld them on an old fire pan for me, and they were a mess.
Here are some pics of the grill top that a friend made for me. It's two pieces, so I can bring along one or both depending on the trip. So far I've only grilled brats on the grill. Haven't tried burgers or steaks yet.
Even with the legs, fire blanket, tools, and both grill tops, this fire pan still packs smaller and is lighter than my old gorilla fire pan. Man I hated that thing. Jan at SNS made a custom fire pan bag for my compact Partner fire pan and it works great for toting it from boat to camp.
I think you scored big time on that fire pan. You'll love it.
