At home, I use an old beer keg that I turned upside down, cut the (original) bottom off, and welded some legs onto the (now)bottom, cut some holes in the sides and (the now) bottom for airflow. A couple of horse shoes welded onto the upper sides for carry handles, and she works a treat. Once the walls heat up, it throws a decent amount of heat too.

Alternatively could cut the keg in half vertically, and open it up, but because it's shallower, is no good when it's windy.

I'm looking for a small excavator or tractor bucket but am open minded. I am willing to spend a few bucks and organize transport!
I'll keep an eye out on my travels.

rang me farmer mate (Iam an ex cockey myself) but he hasn't got anything suitable.
the price of scrap steel went through the roof a few years ago and a lot of stuff got loaded up from farms and cashed in.
I like what you are trying to do and I might have another contact or two.

but at least I caught up on some of the local goss........
