You interested in making another one of those? I'd obviously pay for your time, effort, materials, and shipping. I just don't have the tools to cut, drill, and rivet.
Sorry, I couldn't justify charging what it would take to duplicate. I just checked the standard small Pop Up Pit with the factory stand and it comes in at 37 ounces so only a couple of ounces of weight savings. The factory stand does add 4 inches to the overall length of the bundle but it's still only 16" long and easier to set up than my modified one.

Do keep in mind the Trailblazer does still use aluminum side walls. Keep your fires away from the side walls. We have only seen 2 side walls on the standard Pop-Up-Pit warped, but it can happen. Keep the fires at least an inch from the edges.

Still playing around with my trailblazer Pot Up Pit. Found a way to use the stand with a modification to make it shorter. I cut the top part down to 1 1/4 inches and found that when extended it still will support the grill. I think it will work ok but if not it's easy to get another stand. If you do this use a tubing cutter and cut with the stand retracted to avoid damaging the internal pieces.

I made one of these a while back, though I changed the dimensions to 18" x 18" as it was what I had, and I wanted a square instead of rectangle. I put a fiberglass blanket inside and underneath, and found a Crocket Set at Goodwill that had a perfect bag for me to store it in. :)

What do you all think of the Firekorf? Firekorf a portable Fire Pit / Grill and Roasting Spit!

I purchased one of these to use on overnight kayaking trips. It clearly doesn't meet regs where they require a fully rigid pan, but it does fully enclose ashes from escaping w/ the included top cover.
Will use it with a fireproof blanket underneath to prevent scorching, and maybe make a solid pan when needed

Amazon these are pretty compact worth a look fold up in a back pack. You would need a small welding blanket also.

That looks like a nice rig but probably fails on the 12" x 12" x 3" regulation. Maybe someone else will confirm if it fulfills regs elsewhere.

That one would work great. Where do I buy it?

I bought and have received a Trailblazer by Pop up Pits. It is a bit heavier and larger than what I would have preferred for a never likely to be used regulation satisfying self support firepan. But after setting it up and pondering it,,,, I can definitely visualize a nice little warming fire in it.

I agree it is a bit heavy for my specific intended uses, but I'm pleased with how small it packs up and having owned a pop up fire pit for a while and knowing how well it works I think the trailblazer was a great buy. Plus Triston and campfire defender are always so helpful and responsive to buzzards, I can only say good things about him, the product, and especially the customer service.
