Perfect fire pit

I am sure most of you know this but it is new to me. I took the steel tub out of an old washing machine and it makes a great fire pit. It has holes all over the place and looks very cool when in use. I payed $0.00 for the broken washing machine, scrapped the rest for $20.

I've had CG's supply them with purchased wood. They are great.

You got that right. We do a snowmobiling trip every year with our friends at Mt Shasta. One of our friends there built this one. He welded some legs and and a few other attachments. It was the best fire pit ever. Probably wouldn't want a fire like this unless you were surrounded by 5 feet of snow. Going again in a month, assuming there is some snow by then. Sadly will not be taking the MADP.

I build fires like that on the beach in Mexico. I like the pit in your picture. I saw one that was sitting on a pole about 2' off the ground and there was a cooking grate on the top. the pole was steel and fit up into the hole in the center.

When I next get to Quartsizte the community Campfire is done that way

I carry a Pit-2-Go myself and have also had cheaper fire rings in storage but gave it away after my wife died.. I do not do campfires much any more. (I built them for her to enjoy).

The best ones are made out of stainless steel and are harder to find than the enameled steel ones.

Going to get harder to find. The new washer tubs are plastic.

Mine sits up about 18 inches above ground, and I build a fire pit below so I can get a nice coal bed, that way you can keep the fire blazing, and have a great spot to toast marshmallows.
