campfire grill grate

http://www.amazon.com/Texsport-Heavy...re+grill+grate



You guys ever use something like this? hows it work? I think this year I am going to take my grill less and use something like this on the fire to save space. I have cast iron set to go with it and would still bring my colman 2 burner.

yeah I do, bring it all the time, but I also bring my little Weber. LOVE it for english muffins in the AM, bread of any type, burgers, ect. Takes way too stinkin long to heat up the coffee percolator though. Works best over coals, but it's hard to keep decent, even coals going to cook 'real' meat lol. I have good luck getting a good fire going and putting a griddle on top of the grate, tbh.

If I get this the baby weber will go to trail rides only, when I am not carrying camping gear.

I think the tri-pod style is a better option based on pricing and my experiences with one, but I haven't used the style you linked. Seems like the tripod style is cheaper, more portable, and infinitely more adjustable to work around whatever size pit and fire you have.

I am worried about the space it will take up, this one folds almost flat.

The tripod style breaks down into a box that's roughly 1" thick and 18"x18" square.

This is the exact one I have. I was a little worried it was going to be a POS but it's held up well for the 5 years or so I've had it. I haven't put a skillet on it, but as long as it's balanced I don't know why it wouldn't work...it's plenty sturdy.

Here's the amazon link to a bunch of similar ones

How about just carrying a flat shovel? You can use it for a grill or griddle and to dig yourself out of a tough spot.

I built a little 12"x18" grill out of 1" angle and 1/2" solid round bar that lives in the cook box. Put a 1/2" gap between each bar. Get it hot and coat it with lard. Season it up just like a Dutch oven. Can cook a good meal for two no problem. If you need more room, just pull out the shovel.

This thing is made in China.. even though the company is "Texsport" some of there products are made in China.. these are cheesy and the legs do not work well.. because we bought one and I would not plan on having it last.. will it work? for a few times yes.. but my friends and myself would suggest a downnoutgrill.com .. Hand made in America.. this thing is bullet proof and the legs are independent so you can position around and over logs.. much better buy. Our friends are running these on there jeeps.. Good luck! ohh and these guys will custom make any grill you want.. check them out
