You're right, it wouldn't be to hard to make that work. The problem is not all the fire ring designs are the same. I will be the first to admit that there are many features that would be really neat to have but, they all cost money to add. During all the designing and production that I went through with this product I was continually faced with cost, cost, cost. I am working on a battery operated rotisserie that I think I'll be able to sell for around $60.00, but I haven't gotten the final quotes in yet.
