My troop has a fire drum made from a small (30 gal)
drum that has been cut in third horizontally.
Legs are welded to the sides in three places and
to a plate, another part, at the bottom for stability. It provides
about 12-15 inches of ground clearence. We have
used it for winter camporees where
we left no trace except the lack of wood.
Air is drawn in from the side
through an adjustable vent. We have a rack that
sits on the top for pots. We haul away the entire
operation with no spillage of ashes. The vent is the
only "wear and tear" piece. Yours in Scouting, Jay Bemis
