I wonder if a steel drum like those in the islands could be fashioned to work 
well without the hammered out musically tuned zones on it's surface.  Your 
trash can concept appears similar in form and inspired my thinking along 
these lines for a makeshift dish.  I guess it might be a bit of a challenge 
finding a set without the tuned zones much less with the required parabolic 
shape.  Just an idea I thought I'd pass around.
