You can buy a basket as an accessory to keep the coals up and help with lighting, but I’ve never bothered or had a problem, It’s off the floor by about 250mm and I put the lid underneath.
I use the Webber 3hr briquettes which give out plenty of heat but not to hot.
My coals have always sat on the bottom and it still looks like new!
Plus you can keep you wood or coals inside for transport

Thanks for all the ideas and recommendations.

Decided to go with the bushpig as its regular shape and carry bag should make it easy enough to pack, also the option to store the charcoal in it while travelling means it will hopefully be as space efficient as a folding unit.

Thanks Keith
