Alternative fire pan options (Primus Kamoto)

Has anyone used one of these?

https://primus.us/products/kamoto-fire-pit-large

I realize this isn't grand canyon legal (at least I don't think it is) but for most other rivers the requirements for a fire pan is much less stringent and this could double as a BBQ grill when car camping.

It folds almost flat, has a huge cooking area, and weighs in at 15lbs. Much lighter than most raft fire pans and less costly.

Thoughs?

Too many $ for what you get. See below for cheaper and lighter. I got one and its great for any trips but GC.

The link won't open, but I think it's the one I saw a while ago, haven't been able to find one of those anywhere...But that was my first choice. I actually bought the Kamoto on sale. It was only $100 shipped. REI has the slightly smaller version for a little less. ($80).

I've been using the UCO flatpack grills for a little bit for grilling while car camping, and the Kamoto is basically just a big version. I wish UCO made a giant version of the flat pack. It's almost perfect for my needs.

That thing looks awesome, sounds like Ticla stopped manufacturing them, though.

Damn it. I searched all over for that thing. Nice find... Hmm, so if I ship the Kamoto back I'll probably break even on the ticla (basically the ticla is going to be $50 + the Kamoto return shipping, so $80ish...still a little cheaper but a hassle).

It sounds like you really like the Tickla. how is it as a grill?

With the ability to raise or lower the grill works very well for small groups.


I have a GC approved one $200 30 + #'s
The Ticla $32.50 and 14#'s with shipping on sale
And a home made $40 5#'s


Never can have too many.

I bought one last year after your recommendation. Excellent for the money. Thank you and I also reccomend them if you can still get them.

I stand corrected, usually I'm pretty decent with the googles, I missed this somehow. Got one ordered, thanks for the heads up!
