    Welcome to the forum

    I'd suggest you go to someone who collects old cookers/fridges etc., Scrap man/ local tip etc., and ask them.

    i have this kind of thing, that also fits perfectly on top of my firebox. it's roughly the size you're looking for. found it in an army surplus shop and it was very cheap.
    david's idea of looking at a scrap metal place is also a good one.

    If you're willing to pay, have a look on e-bay at this sort of thing https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-BBQ-G...MAAOSwvR5aTnGX

    I use a US made 'Purcell Trench grill' which is excellent, super sturdy and weighs nothing much. Not sure how much it'd be to get one sent over here though.

    Have look in B&m store if there's one near you. Sink protector strong enough to cut to size perhaps. If you don't mind the hole in the middle.
    Worth a look for £3.

    I use an old oven grill which works very well.... but has anyone discovered a model of grill to use over an open fire that has it's own adjustable feet so you can easily adjust the height.

    At present I use combinations of bricks, stones, logs that happen to be lying around but just wondered if anyone had come up with a better solution?

    You could always use fire irons? (essentially 2 x lengths of angle iron to rest your pans on) Heavy - well yes, but as I carry them in my canoe not so much of an issue.

    Thank you for reminding me about fire irons Tim - they are something I have read about but then, for one reason or another, dismissed. They probably are the best solution.

    Anywhere to buy them? Did you have them made or have you re-purposed something?

    Simply two pieces of angle iron, the ends were rounded off and holes drilled for a carabiner if needed. Cheap as chips

    If anyone else is interested I got some from: https://www.austenknapman.co.uk/

    Quick delivery... the angle iron was less than £3... but the postage was a tenner. Still overall I felt it was good value.
