His take is that it should be one solid piece and with that a trash can lid was what we passed with. Just a heads up.
Well Critter, ya did it now. You are the first person after thousands of pits being sold to have theirs denied.... I think we owe you a dinner or something lol
The regulations are a little goofy when it comes to fire pans so i'm sure the ranger was just unfamiliar with the product and wanted to play it on the safe side which is always acceptable. I'm gonna see if we can reach out to the rangers out on Westwater to do some training.
The Pop-Up Pit does meet and exceed all of the stated regulations but it always comes down to the rangers call.
The primary concern is always whether ash falls through the mesh which most of you probably know by now, it does not fall through.
