I can't find it on the main site, just the 2005sg.
The 2005 afterburn probably right before opener of 2006.
Q: Can't the pottie vendor take better care servicing them? Sometimes there is shit on the seat, or piddle on the floor.
A: Aim better. Also, the reason for the icky-ness is due to an evil practice called hovering. Park yer butt on the seat, and you won't get cooties. If there is some wetness on the seat, just wipe it down with TP and then park your butt. The vendors are just as pissed off as we all are when a unit is fouled. They service the potties every 6 hrs per contract, and do a DAMN good job considering the abuse people put them through.

Anything that you wouldn't mind burning in your own backyard or your fireplace. Remember, we all have to breath the smoke.
I've spent whole days for two years post event monitoring the burn platforms, and you wouldn't believe the crap that people throw in: particle board, foam, plastic, synthetic cloth, glued and painted materials. Cripes. These don't go in.

Once you light those briquettes, you're pretty much stuck next to your bbq until they're 100% out and cold. And the ashes will be a mess even if you're meticulous about bagging. Does this hibachi hae a clamp-on lid? How big are the airholes? Will it drop ash on the ground, and if so, what will you put under it to keep them off the playa?
Propnae or butane are your friends. Really.
Or maybe I'm just related to Hank Hill...

Here is a suggestion:
Get two foil pans the same size and several spring clamps. Put the hibachi in the bottom pan and cut holes the side (high up) the bottom pan and in the top and sides of the top one. Get your fire started and start cooking, put the top pan on and hold down with the spring clamps, your food will cook faster in a oven anyway. The main goal of this rig is to keep charcoal (which is mainly coal BTW) off the Playa. This is really true if you have to dump water on it. Those little doors on the side of the hibachi will let a slurry of 'stuff' pour out, the pan will keep the slurry off the playa. Scraping that stuff up is not fun, I have watched people do it (with an Earth Guardian standing there glaring at them, actually she was yelling at them when I first wandered over).
Note: If we get winds that will lift that hibachi we are all going to be in a world of hurt.
