    Just made an over fire grill from heavy 1"x1" box section and a heavy wire grill bolted to the top to put pots and pans on. it's 19" wide x 28" long x 16" high so should be perfect for over fire grill.
    Heavy duty but light enough to carry ;)

    Sorry forgot here are a few pics of the over fire grill, it's nothing special to look at but it's strong and should do the job and last a good while.
    I will bring it with me when I come down and leave it for you guys to use.

    I think you may need a stronger stand for this boiler mate with 14L of water in it it's quite heavy. Maybe Rob could knock up it's own stand for it.

    Looks like one my dad made me :) but he used 1.1cm thick steel bars for everything, probably because they could burn in the fire?

    :goodjob: Hope no one minds me saying but the grill looks like its galvanised, if it is heating galvanised metal releases highly toxic gases which will make you very ill or even kill you (metal fume fever) so just check it's not galvanised before you use it, just to be safe, apart from that looks to be a good job.
