Sitting here the past 2 weeks nursing a broken arm, I'm getting in a fair amount of youtube viewing. I rather like the idea presented in this video. It ain't Q, but kids could certainly roast weenies over it.

Not sure I like how the coals could fall out of that.

Good point. Maybe an easy improvement to do.

I wonder if that's river rock he's using? Potential to explode?

Yep, need to be careful with what stones you choose - flints are not good in fires.

You would probably need to change the dimensions of the box but firebrick would work better than stones. It would be heavy and a pain to empty if you didn't use a little refractory concrete to "glue" them together but it probably wouldn't tip over if somebody accidentally kicked it. I have to agree with landarc about hot coals falling out the bottom as it is presented in the video. Looks like a project I would pass on.
