Keep the charcoal ring in it and use it. I have used it several times, like this as my daughter likes to make smores for fellow teams at comps.
just 1 more thing the weber does, to make it even more versatile. In fact im lazy, so a lit chimney or a half chimney if in short on coals, dumped in then some logs on top, and you got a fire pretty darn quick.
