Camp fire grill

Looking for ideas for a grill/cook surface for the fire. Not a fan of tri-pods.

Try the mountain man grill, here is a link, but look around, I think you can find it for about $100. Also look at Sportsman's Warehouse, Cabela's, and Bass Pro Shop.

We used a tripod for many years. I was very good at using it. But, it was hard to put any kind of pot or griddle on it, and you have to practically get in the fire sometimes to turn or remove things. Got my arms hairs singed more than once!

Last year I got talked into buying an Automatic Chef. It was a bit pricy and I hesitated to buy it (we paid about $30 less than the online price at a cookware store in Green Bay, WI). But wow, what an easy way to cook over a fire. The grill swings away from the fire, easily raises up and down, and has a rotisserie to turn the grill so you never have hot spots. It only takes a few minutes to setup and take down. It makes cooking over a fire so effortless I actually look forward to cooking at the campsite now.

Right after I used it for the first time we walked our tripod to the dumpster and trashed it.

I have one like this, but not quite as fancy. It basicly consists of a grilling rack with a handle that allows you to adjust the height of the grill. It also uses a metal rod that you pound into the ground that is about 3/4 of an inch round. I think you can buy them at CW but Im not sure. They also come with quite a short mounting pole, we had a couple made that were taller, by a relitive who can weld...

Excuse my ignorance - but are y'all talking about cooking over an open fire like in the Wagon Trains of yesterday?

We have used the Adjust-a-grill for 6 years and really like it. One downfall was that the screw to tighten the grill to the "smoothie" strips. My husband rigged it and it has worked for years. The "smoothie" can be short depending on the fire ring- that too can be replaced to meet your needs.

I also just purchased this: Tough Tripod Grill
for my dutch oven and as an alternative to our adjust-a-grill.

Can't wait to camp!

We saw something like that last week at the Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, PA. I think it was an outfit called E-Z Over Grill, from Annville, PA, but I couldn't find any other information online, like a web site or a Facebook page.

I've been using that set up for years, IMHO it is hands down the best option for outdoor cooking. The one I have was made by this company - Unique Cooking System : Outdoor campfire cooking system.

They're a little expensive but well made and durable. They allow you to rotate the food over the fire, easily adjust the height, and swing the whole grate away from the fire for flipping or checking the food.
