My wife found one on the internet and orderd it for me at the beginning or summer. We've used it about every night while camping and sometime for breakfast.
She's a keeper....:hihi:

We did a lot of cooking on fire rings just like that one only we had a old BBQ grate that we took along just to put down to cook on. And after cooking then I had a old aluminum pressure cooker that we used to heat water for doing dishes but this was befor we had a trailer and hot water

To safely use one of these you need to get it as hot as you can, take a wire brush and clean the grate, then spray or apply some cooking oil on the grate prior to cooking. As many has said before me, the heat alone will kill off anything that may have been left on the grate. The cooking oil will get super hot and will aid in sterilizing the grill.

We always cook on these. My pet peeve is some people think these are used to burn trash, paper, plastic bottles ect.....The DW says i'm OCD when I completely clean the former camper's debris left in the fire ring!!!!
Then after heating up the grill, wrap in heavy foil and spray with Pam............Couple of pics of the results YUM!!!Click image for larger version

Fire grates are one of our main cooking "devices" Along with our dutch oven, you can make just about anything.

Tim, tell your wife there is nothing wrong with you!! We always clean the fire pit out because it usually does have too much ash built up. We've only been to one CG (Platte River, MI) that required us to clean pit before we left. It was nice that they had metal cans to dispose of them.

We always bring our own washer drum firepit that has legs so we can place in the CG provided pit but suspend our fire above and plastic, cigarette butts, etc that has built up in there. Maybe I should become a better citizen and clean out the fire pit too.

Another benefit of the washer drum is it raises the fire a couple feet so it feels like the heat radiates better. And if you get a bad batch of CG wood the smoke blows over you head while seated opposed to directly in you face.

... most of these grills are cleaner than many restuarants we've eaten at...
