Well, less metal would save freight, but, OK, I'll ask the dumb question.

How can one be expected actually to cook on the DPKA brazier, with nowhere to put the fire?

I don't suppose you could use the ground ???

I sure hope George Foreman doesn't hear about this. I can almost see the
commercials now...... :roll:
Well, sure, you could, but the cookpots would be held around a foot up from the fire, so you'd need a big fire...not always the best choice for cooking, and using charcoal would be impossible. Not enough heat to reach that far away.

Generally speaking, when I cook over a fire, I like to use small, finger sized sticks under the pot or pan, because it's easier to regulate the heat, and well developed red coals for roasting. The small sticks allow you to put a little more fire right where you want it, without using a ton of wood.

Softer woods work better for a quick flame (boiling), harder woods for slow, steady heat (roasting or grilling). Most of the charcoal lump I've bought is from oak, mesquite, or other unknown hardwoods. Pine, fir or similar just doesn't last long enough to make sense of going to all the trouble of making charcoal.
Anyone know of a U.S. vendor that's carrying these?
I have a pattern for a small, folding portable brazier that I used when open fires were not allowed. Small metal rods formed the Grill and an area to place your charcoal. The ash just sifted itself out the bottom. I am sure its probably not authentic or PC, but it beats a cold camp, it cools off fast and folds to about 1"x6"x6"....I have a photocopy tracing of the pattern if anyone wants one. I will see if I can scan it and post it as well.

Here're a few pics of our first one. We have 5 of them now.

All have long legs so we can use them in California Parks.. need a 12" clearance.

We have 2 on the workbench with short legs like the original so we can use them on raised food prep tables.... less bending!

Thanks to a helpful hand from this forum, I've just seen it listed on a U.S. vendor. The item description claims that it is a replica of one found in Pompeii. Of course, that's just a sellers proclaimation to convince us to buy, but it might give you a lead on where to search for the original?

Here is the only picture of the original I could find of the 'Craticula'

It is not a photo but a drawing of the Pompeii find with description and Naples museum item number which may help.
