The Ancient Egyptian Brazier hieroglyph is Gardiner sign listed no. Q7 for the cooking brazier. It is shown from the Old Kingdom in the style of a vertical burning flame upon four feet, but the hieroglyph has the flame hiding the fourth foot.

Rosetta Stone usage
In the 196 BC Rosetta Stone, the Brazier hieroglyph is used two times, Rosetta lines R3, and R11; both are listings of sacrifices and offerings, as part of the nineteen reasons for rewarding pharaoh Ptolemy V, and thus creating the Rosetta Stone; (ten deeds are stated then to honor Ptolemy V, including creating, and erecting the Decree of Memphis (Ptolemy V) on the stela).
Both uses are the hieroglyph composition blocks for uah 'kh, for "burnt offerings".
Line R3 states: ".. He brought providing in them for their temples at the festival great, burnt offerings, [animals for] slaughter-(=sacrifices), drink offerings-(=libations), and things every usually made..."
(temples of them)
(at the festival great)
Line R11 states: "Shall be offered a burnt offering...", ("emtutu uah a(kh)").
