For folks who aren't familiar with the 300 series of stainless, 303, either S or Se, are free machining. They have wonderful machining characteristics and are a pleasure to work with.

Wise people talk because they have something to say. Fools talk because they have to say something.

Another project.
I help a group put on a festival each year, for the last 15 years. We usually have a bon fire, but in the last few years we have been on different properties, and the event is held in August, and that is when the fire danger is the highest around here. So we did not have a fire for a few years, until I built a gas one, last year. This year I built the burners for two of them. They can be no greater the 36"X36" around here. I am friends with one of the local welders here, and they were kind enough to build the stand and pan, for the burner. I used landscape lava rock for the media. The lava rock was recently delivered to the yard where I borrow it from, and was a bit wet. Once I had it all set up for a test run, I let it run for a bit to dry the rock to keep them from popping. Below is a picture of me burning them off. ;)
Live for the moment!
Prepare for tomorrow!
Forgive the past!

This is a perfect solution while the highest restriction level on outdoor burning is being enforced Pat. Kudos to you.
Just let go of it, it will eventually unplug itself.
