Fire pans

Howdy,
What style / type do you use? I've been using a small steel wheel barrel with rocks under it and it's now time for a new idea.
Anyone?

Arnt we all. Well i use the top of a colman grill. Randaddy's fire pan idea sounds cool, and cheap.

A fire pan that could fit in a rocket box with a grill cover and a place for ashes is a really good idea.

That would be ideal - it would be light weight as well. I'm not sure if you could get the right size to meet the minimum requirements but I like the idea.

Firepan...

Partner- out of Idaho that makes the spendy-nice stoves actually makes one out of steel. The unit consists of 2 square-like trays-one fits within the other. They slide apart for use. Unit has 3" sides to pass any ranger inspection you'll encounter, fits inside a rocket box w/room to spare for briquets and a grill, and is pretty light.

I've used the magnum-sized nrs style fire pans, ones made out of the bottom of a 50gal drum, other round home-made kinds... I really like the slide out/together Partner one for its simplicity, fairly light weight, adjustability of size, and they're pretty affordable too.
See'em at the Partner web site and I think River Connection in Idaho sells them online.

I just saw those yesterday. I ordered one of them. I think this will work a lot better than my wheel barrel pan. They weigh about the same but, I can have a larger fire in the WB pan - on those really cold nights plus it's really messy and hard to stow on the boat.

I own a cataraft. I welded my own out of some flat metal to idaho specs. I made the box to fit under the cooler so it provides some cooler protection if I get a little careless and park on a rock ... I figured repairing a damaged firepan is cheaper than replacing a lacerated cooler ...

it takes an extra step of actually cleaning out the firepan before putting it back in the boat. Got a brush that goes in the ash can for this. But the firepan is large and is in a place where it can't hurt anyone ....

my ash can is an ammo can. at start of trip this contains charcoal for steak night. by the end of the trip it is mostly ash and sand, which gets dumped into the compost bin ....
