Campfire Cooking Equipment: Over-Fire Grills, Rotisserie Spits and Stands

We like to get away from people when we go camping so we usually head for remote camping sites in National Forests. That means, fire rings are all you have when dispersed camping so we bring our own grill grates and stands.
Campfire Cooking Equipment: Over-Fire Grills, Rotisserie Spits and Stands - Camp Chef Lumberjack Over-the-Fire Grill with Sturdy Legs

If you are camping in campgrounds that have grill grates over the campfire pit, you are golden. If not, you need to fend for yourself. Using a grate like this Camp Chef Lumberjack Over-Fire Grill gives you a cooking surface that allows for direct cooking of food or you can place a pan or Dutch oven on it to cook in that type of campfire cooking equipment. This has folding legs for stability and pack-ability too.

Campfire Cooking Equipment: Over-Fire Grills, Rotisserie Spits and Stands - Texsport Outdoor Camping Rotisserie Grill and Spit

This Texsport Outdoor Camping Rotisserie Grill and Spit is a multi-purpose type of campfire cooking equipment that makes you feel like you are in the best gourmet kitchen while camping in the great outdoors!

Campfire Cooking Equipment: Over-Fire Grills, Rotisserie Spits and Stands - Camp Chef Cast Iron Dutch Oven Stand

If you don’t want to cook with your Dutch oven directly in the campfire, you don’t have to! This Camp Chef Dutch Oven Stand gets your oven off the ground and is large enough to hold one 14″ Dutch oven. It’s another piece of campfire cooking equipment that can do double duty too … like keeping your bag of charcoal off the ground so it remains dry in the event of rain or dew.

Campfire Cooking Equipment: Griddles, Dutch Ovens And Pans

We like using equipment that is multi-purpose. Cast iron is great for durability and it is made for campfire cooking but lighter weight “nested” pots are nice to have too.

Cast Iron Campfire Cooking Equipment: Griddles, Dutch Ovens And Pans - Lodge Camp Dutch Oven, 6 Qt

Cast iron Dutch ovens are the cornerstone of campfire cooking equipment. We have several ovens in multiple sizes and like using our 6 Qt Dutch Oven for camping meals that are smaller and they also work well when stack cooking.

&

&

&

&

Campfire Cooking Equipment: Dutch Oven Accessories

The right accessories are great because they tend to make clean-up, transportation and storage easier. They also help to prolong the life of your campfire cooking equipment.
Campfire Cooking Equipment And Dutch Oven Accessories - Disposable Dutch Oven Liners

We love using our cast iron Dutch ovens for campfire cooking. We serve directly from the oven to the plate and clean-up is a breeze. But, if you want next-to-no clean-up, these Disposable Dutch Oven Liners make awesome campfire cooking equipment! They are also fabulous when making cakes that you want to “lift” out of the oven when they are done.

&

&nbsp

Campfire Cooking Equipment And Dutch Oven Accessories - Camp Chef Griddle Carry Bag

&

&

Campfire Cooking Equipment And Dutch Oven Accessories - Texsport Deluxe Campfire Cooking Tripod

This is a piece of campfire cooking equipment that reminds me of the old west! Cooking with a Campfire Cooking Tripod takes a little getting used to because the Dutch oven will swing and sway a bit when you stir your food and in the wind. The benefit to using it is the ability to raise and lower the oven by adjusting the length of the chain to increase or decrease the heat for cooking.

&

&

Campfire Cooking Equipment And Dutch Oven Accessories - Mair Dutch Oven Lid Lifter 14

This Mair Dutch Oven Lid Lifter is not the most compact piece of campfire cooking equipment but its ease of use and functionality overcomes that drawback. The design of this particular handle allows for easy grip and complete control when moving the lid as well as the oven.

&

&

Campfire Cooking Equipment And Dutch Oven Accessories - Lodge A5-3 Camp Dutch Oven Lid Stand

Once you remove the lid during cooking, you need somewhere to put it while you are stirring your food in the Dutch oven and you don’t want to put it on the ground because you might pick up dirt that will fall into the food when you replace the lid to continue cooking. Using a Dutch Oven Lid Stand is a piece of campfire cooking equipment that will prevent that problem.

&

&

Campfire Cooking Equipment That Is Just For Fun - Texsport Triangle Dinner Bell

You have to admit, some pieces of campfire cooking equipment are just for fun like this Texsport Triangle Dinner Bell. Sure, you could yell “Dinner Is Ready” or you could just ring the bell! P.S. It also works like a manual alarm clock to get tired campers out of bed for early morning fishing.
