Jeeze, what is it today with people and fires? Third group I've been
talking with, that's dealing with the topic.

I'm currently working on building myself and a friend something
similar to what you're talking about, but I discovered a truly elegant
design, that with modifications, I intend to use as a firebox and
grill. 2' X 3' would work- it would just be a bit bulkier, if all in
one piece, than I would prefer to haul around. Instead, look over the
brazier in this website:


They also have plans for getting one out of a 2' X 4' sheet of metal
(plus some hardware and whatnot) although I had to save it and blow it
up to see it readably. Pretty nice set up.

> Aloha to the group.  Thank you for allowing me to join the discussion.  I am in the process of planning/designing/making a portable fire box for use at our almost monthly camping events.  MY question for the group is what is a reasonable size?  I was thinking 2'x3' so I have room for fire and room for cooking with coals.  My idea is to have 5" deep sides.  I am also currently planning on making this thing with 14g. mild steel and doing the pounding myself.  Good idea?  bad idea?  The guy at the steel place said stainless shouldn't have direct heat or it can crack.  At any campsite we use, the fire is ok, but it must be off the ground so I was just going to use pipe for the legs, 8-12" should be sufficient.  Is this a waste of time and resources?
