I used a Bayou Classic from Amazon, ~$30, I pick it up with pot holders to add lump, rarely needed.

BTW, I was going to bend up strap steel like yours, but had to "heat and beat" to get the bends as clean as I wanted. I finally just caved and spent the $$ on the CGS piece. It is overpriced for what it is, but it is exceptionally well made, very thick material, and I am really glad I bought it. I am very frugal, and have no regret whatsoever.
