Looking to build a campfire extra large griddle / teppan. Has anyone done it before?

I looked at the Camp Chef Professional Fry Griddle that is about 37" x 16" which is about the size i would like. Unfortunately that one would end up costing about $200.

Just wondering if anyone has ever made one by purchasing a metal sheet.

It would only be used over an open campfire so would need to be thick enough to prevent warping I would assume.

What I am interested in finding out is what kind of metal would work best for the price / weight etc.

Stainless steel?
Iron?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Trying to find a Used Paella Pan for Group Camping

Thanks. A few of the campers have said it was the best camping meal ever.
One who had been to Spain, said it was comparable to what they had there. That was a great compliment. I was very satisfied with how it turned out.

And no leftovers...

Thanks. I ended up purchasing from creative cooking online. Quick shipping and worked great. Here is a photo of my campfire paella.

Trying to find a Used Paella Pan for Group Camping

Each year we do a group camping trip which includes one night of "non-traditional" camp cooking.
Examples would be Chicken Parm, with LInguinie Alfredo from scratch, Beef Brisket with three types of marinade, etc..

This year we would like to attempt Paella. I would love to track down an actual Paella pan in the 20" to 26" range. Approximately 20-25 campers.

I don't need a new one since it's probably only going to be used once over an open campfire. It can be somewhat beat up / dented charred or whatever as long as it is useable.

So if anyone is looking to upgrade their pan or know of anyone getting rid of one can you let me know.

Thanks.

Just a note: I've seen the ones at La Tienda, The Spanish Table, Paellapans.com

I am also in Ontario, Canada (in case of shipping)
