Not desiring to spend $25 wantonly, and also since I don't need a lot of charcoal in most cases, I found a tin cylinder sitting around the house, and used a drill to cut 1/2 inch holes in the bottom and sides, adding a wire handle.

I accomplished the same thing by cutting the top and bottom out of a 3 pound coffee can and used an old fashioned beer can opener to add holes to the bottom edge. Fill with newspaper and charcoal and you are off to the races. Works pretty good.
