Added some SS legs (4.5" h), a SS rod that I can use to lift it out (pics were taken before I bent the top of the rod into a loop). It wont be shiny long!
i use aluminum roasting pans (turkey size), cheap and disposable , plus they hold a lot of ash , you can usually get quite a few cooks out of them before they are trashed
