Any recommendations for self-support fire pans? I did a search but didn't find much and nothing recent.
That is exactly what we have. I have a Katana 10.4 and Peg has a Katana 9.7. Obviously would also work in our three Prijon Expeditions.I use an older metal oil pans- rthe ound ones to drain your car oil in, back in the days when we used to do that (and they weren't made of plastic). They have about a 3-inch lip, and will work for a small group. Mine fits nicely, upside-down (and last to go in) in the rear hatch of my Dagger Katana for self-supports. Either bring a bag/old pillowcase to put it in, or plan on scouring it with sand if you don't want your other gear to be smudged.
They do not pass in Canyonlands: River Regulations - Canyonlands National Park (U.S. National Park Service)Kool, do turkey pans pass the regs everywhere? If so, I'm going to buy me a turkey pan.
- A rigid, durable metal fire pan that is large enough to fully contain all fire ash and debris (NOTE: turkey basting pans are NOT allowed).
This is the one I think a friend had on a MF self support a few years ago. If it passes mustard there it likely passes for a firepan anywhere.
I tried one, liked it, but ended up building a traditional aluminum one. I can send you my receipt from the online metals place that has all the dimensions if you'd like. Hit me up with your email and I'll send it over.
I have one of Tom’s early models and have used it a few times with good results. The MFS ranger seemed impressed. carried in a plastic poster tube.This is the one I think a friend had on a MF self support a few years ago. If it passes mustard there it likely passes for a firepan anywhere.
I emailed the dude to see if he is still in business. I've PMed you my email address.
Based on Zach's,Okieboater's and others recommendation and owning a popup already I went ahead and bought a trailblazer. They give you a chance to win a discount and I won enough to make it a no brainer.
While I had it out I hinged the spreader to fold up. Bundle is now 12 1/2 X4 x3 inches and weighs 35 ounces with carrying bag. Grill adds 13 ounces.I modified a Trailblazer Pot Up Pit to shave a little weight and still be useful for a fire. I have seen the Titanium ones and I they work but kind of hard to set up and have lots of sharp edges. It is too small for Grand Canyon but should be OK for most other rivers. 12" x12" with a 3 inch lip. 32 ounces. I made the legs long enough to support the optional grill in case I want to use it. I am still thinking about using a thinner gauge metal for the leg spreader, it's now 1/8" but that's what I had laying around and it would only save an ounce or so........... I am working on a way to make the spreader fold up to fit the bundle while still being rigid enough. This is pretty much a prototype but I am satisfied with it.
