If ya need a contained fire this is a very easy way to do it :thumbsup: :drinks:

I originally thought of 44s but couldn't find any and just grabbed the rims .piece of piss to empty. We don't need much heat it's more to sit around without going to the bonfire pit.

Yeah the rims work fine for that sort of thing, I've also got a washing machine drum to kicking around here which also works well but the 44's are the go if you want serious heat output.

Enjoy the new firepit mate, they really are great to sit around having a few coldies and a chat to mates etc. :drinks:
