Found a cheap Firepan - you think this will work?

Found this at Target and it folds pretty flat and comes in a nice carry bag. I also like that it is round and a corner will not accidentally snag the raft. It is not steep 3" sides, but anyone think the rangers will have a problem with this? Headed over to the Green River this month and need something - I will not use it for cooking, just a fire at night. Thanks for the feedback!

Full size steam table pan. Light, cheap, compliant.

Set it on some rocks to elevate it.

You'll need something better than rocks in some jurisdictions. Grand Canyon specifically prohibits using rocks to elevate the fire pan. I guess they think it might be unstable.

Slickhorn great suggestion, I will go that route. Mogur no Grand Canyon - or any National Park areas for that matter, at least this year - got my four legged companions. I think the steam pan will work for now. Although I kind of like the target firepit one for a campsite.

If you get two of these, you put one face down on the ground and the second on top for the fire, then there is no need for rocks to keep it off the ground. To stow it they can nest.

Packet pan...

Anyone ever use a disposable aluminum baking pan as a fire pan for self-support kayak trips?
I folded one up the other day 12"x18"x6" and set it aside, but have never burned in one or tried to pass inspection with one.

I sometimes use one of those cheap round grills without the legs. I cant find a pic of one but it's one of the 2' shallow round charcoal grills without a top like they sell at Wlamart for about 10$. Set it on some rocks to elevate.
