I have a similar one that I tote around when camping and they work great for small meals.If you need a larger size look for a model like a "Fatso".The "Fatso" is of the same design but as the name implies it is almost twice the size and has an conspicuously "fat" firebox,thus the name.I have one of them also but he does not like to take road trips or go camping as he only moves slowly by hand truck.

He won't budge on the price... I am not that attached to it, I just need something to boil sap I might try to fabricate something.
