    I did something like this years ago when I was homesteading our place.
    I used wood and it would take about 2 hours with a small fire to get it warm and then the coals kept it perfectly hot for a while.
    I just plopped it on to cinder blocks with my front end loader.
    I also plugged the over flow so it was really deep.

    nice the good thing with the gas burner is it only takes ten twenty minutes to heat and there is no smoke getting in your eyes

    Cool! if you can't find the propane stuff around the house or in a junkyard, the big W sells grill repair items so you can do the burner for around $20-30.
