    I made mine out of a jumbo grapefruit segment tin - 25p shown below with zebra billy inside



    this one is made from a small ikea sink drainer

    If it works what else do you need, next you can try a wood gas stove, very efficient and almost smokless (good for stealth camping)

    My advice would be short and fat, not tall and toppley - I've had some I made topple and it's not pretty - food mixed with wood and ash...lol
    Campfires are best shared with friends.
