Campfire Cooking Equipment: Over-Fire Grills And Gear

Camp Cooking Tips - Campfire Cooking Equipment - Use Over-Fire Grills, Rotisserie Spits and Stands - Camping For Foodies .com

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. These are the coolest campfire cooking equipment products that make creating delicious camping meals in the great outdoors fun and easy!


Camp Chef Lumberjack Over-the-Fire Grill with Sturdy Legs made our list of Campfire Cooking Equipment You Can't Live Without

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 Heavy Duty Camp 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. On a side note, just for the record … I am not a pyromaniac in spite of what my friends and family members say about me … I just like cooking over a healthy campfire! 😉

Texsport Deluxe Campfire Cooking Tripod made our list of Campfire Cooking Equipment You Can't Live Without

This is a piece of campfire cooking equipment that reminds me of the old west! Cooking with a Cast Iron 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.

&

This Cast Iron 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.

&


Lodge A5-3 Camp Dutch Oven Lid Stand made our list of Campfire Cooking Equipment You Can't Live Without

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 Camp Dutch Oven Lid Stand is a piece of campfire cooking equipment that will prevent that problem.

&


Cast Iron Meat Rack/Trivet made our list of Campfire Cooking Equipment You Can't Live WithoutCast Iron Meat Rack/Trivet

There is absolutely no reason to scorch food when cooking in a camp Dutch oven. You just need to get the food off of the bottom of the pan so there is no direct contact with the oven.

You just set a Cast Iron Meat Rack/Trivet in the bottom of your oven and place the food on top of it. It’s like magic!
