Fire pan review

Has anyone had any experience with the "Adjust-a Grill" firepan? What I like about it is that it seems sturdy, the carrying case has d-rings, and it's cheaper than the NRS pan. What I don't like is that it's shorter and doesn't have a lid.

I can't find any reviews for it online. Anyone?

pictures

here are some pictures, I will build the legs tomorrow, should I do 4 screw on legs or 2 L shaped legs with lock ins? if I do the L shape I could elevate the grill from the box.

Thank you,

Kjristen, if the "Adjust-a-grill" is the one that has a stake in the middle and the grill height adjust allong the stake with a set screw, let me know. I will make you one before the trip.

Or send me a pic of what you are looking for.

When I built mine I copied the NRS model so I could move the grate! I also made the floor of the pan so it could float and not twist the whole thing when it got hot... Let me know if that holds it's shape being solid after you heat her up!
It does look good BOB!

Fierpan!

If your going to use on the Grand make sure it passes reg size,
Our good friend mr.ranger tried to tell me my NRS was not!
The sides were 2.999999999" not 3"
but the adjustables are sweet if you like grilling!
You could probable have a lid made cheap right now!

I think the L-shaped legs w/ the lock ins would work better than the screw on legs. Awesome work though!

If I am not mistaken all the regulations state it must be 3'' deep and 12'' off the ground. as far as depth and height requirements.

I figured I would have a warping problem, so I stiched the base and tacked the corners. I left it 4'' deep so I could "float" a sub base to absorb the heat transfer about 3/4'' above the bottom of the pan. overall depth of 3-1/4'' after the sub.

I also looked at the nrs fire pan. up close I saw they bent the 4 sides out of 1 peice of flatstock then tacked 6 1'' long peices of angle to the sides to float the bottom pan. but they welded it all in.

Kjirsten, I did some more reserch on the adjust a grill. I can duplicate it to the tee, so well in-fact I will probably get sued. I do think if we build that style of gril though, We should make the legs longer so it meets the general height requirements (12'') so I have found.

Thanks for the feed-back, sorry to hi-jack.....
