Over-Fire Grills & Cooking Gear

We like to get away from people when we go on our camping adventures so we usually head for remote free camping sites located in in National Forests. Camp fire rings are relatively common when boondocking but we usually have to bring our own grill grates and stands.

Campfire Cooking Equipment You Really Need by CampingForFoodies features a campfire cooking grate filled with corn on the cob that is roasting over hot camp fire coals in a fire ring against a background of campfire flames and text over the image that reads Campfire Cooking Equipment.

1. Heavy Duty Over Fire Camp Grill

If you are camping in campgrounds that have grill grates over the camp fire pit, you are golden. If not, you need to fend for yourself. A camp fire grate like this heavy-duty camp grill is a great option.

It has folding legs for stability and pack-ability. 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 our food over an open flame!

2. Heavy Duty Adjustable Camping Rotisserie Grill & Spit

One of the cool things about camping is the slower pace, so, it’s the perfect time to do slow-roasting if you like that sort of cooking. This campfire rotisserie grill and spit is a multi-purpose gadget that allows you to do many things at once.

The rotisserie arm is one of the best features because it cooks above the food you have on the campfire cooking grate. You can place food directly on the grate or place it in a pan that you then place on the grate. The side arms can be used for hanging coffee kettles and cooking tools.

3. Swivel Grill Open Fire BBQ Adjustable Grill With Stake

The convenience of a swivel grill is a wonderful thing because you can rotate the grill over your open flame then turn it away from the heat for stirring, flipping and serving. The triangular shape attached to the stake keeps it stable in the ground. You can vertically adjust the height of the cooking surface for optimal heating as well as horizontally swivel it 360 degrees.

4. Camp Chef Dutch Stand

This cook stand gets your campfire ovens off the ground and is large enough to hold one 14″ oven or several smaller ovens. It’s another piece of open fire 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.

5. Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Outdoor Campfire Log Grabber

You want your FOOD to cook over the fire … not your hands! These log tweezers are a great addition to your gear box. They keep your hands and arms far enough away from the fire to avoid getting burned. The “grabbing action” gives you the control you need to adjust your logs and coals for the perfect cooking environment!

6. Battery-Powered Bellows Charcoal Starter

If you can’t ever get your fire going on the first attempt, you may want one of these BBQ Dragon Fire Lighter gadgets! The battery-powered bellows allow you to start a campfire or charcoal briquettes without using lighter fluid and stacks of old newspapers! This gadget fits in to the category of “right campfire tools” for people who didn’t earn the campfire scout badge as a kid! LOL

If your family likes camping hacks and enjoys doing easy DIY projects … consider making your own dryer lint fire starters! You can make them cute enough to give as inexpensive gifts!

7. Extra Long Suede Grill Gloves

These gloves will protect you from super high temperatures. They are 18-inches long to protect your entire arm up to 475 F degrees. The thing you want to watch for in a grill glove is the material … it needs to be soft and pliable so you can actually grab and hold your cooking utensils firmly.

8. 16-Inch Stainless Steel Locking Tongs

Every camp cook needs AT LEAST one set of these 16-inch locking tongs. Not only do they give you comfortable distance from the hot coals to avoid burning your hands, they also grip really well so you don’t have to worry about one of your scrumptious t-bone steaks accidentally falling in the fire!

9. Stainless Steel Wire Grill Brush

Whenever you are cooking your food directly over a campfire, you want to make sure you are using the right wood. Cooking over oak or mesquite will give your food a magnificent flavor. The other thing you want to do is clean campfire grills with a wire grill brush that allows you to remove old food and grease from the grates.

10. Instant Read Meat Digital Thermometer

Some people can do the “touch test” to accurately determine if their piece of meat is cooked to the desired temperature, others need a little help! Using an instant read meat thermometer takes the guesswork out of the question, “Is it done cooking yet?” It’s fast, instant and easy to read the digital display!

11. Stainless Steel Deluxe Grill Set

The best camping cookware sets are designed with safety in mind. Carrying cases protect you from sharp items and keeps the gear organized during transportation and storage. This quality camp cookware kit is filled with all the grilling tools you need.

It has a spatula, tongs, basting brush, corn holders, skewers, cleaning brush with replacement head … PLUS … a digital temperature fork that displays actual and desired temperatures. The fork also has an alarm alerting you when food is done and has an integrated LED light for checking food at night!

If you always boil your sweet corn, I encourage you to try grilling it because the char adds a nice texture and flavor to the kernels you just can’t get from boiling. Check out our How To Grill Sweet Corn Over The Campfire (or charcoal grill if you must) post to see how easy it is!

These cook sets are really nice additions to your indoor and outdoor RV kitchen accessories. When you are cooking after the sun goes down, the LED light on this digital fork may not be sufficient for all of the tasks you need to do to complete the meal so make sure you have campsite lights set in strategic locations!


12. Heavy Duty Steel Collapsible Campfire Ring

If you are boondocking in an area without fire rings, you can “build” your own by digging a shallow pit and stacking rocks around the outside to keep flames and sparks within the ring. Alternatively, you can use a steel ring to have portable campfires that are easy to set up. The structure is hinged and compactly folds to fit in its carrying case for handy transportation and storage!

13. Heavy Duty Fire Pit Collapsing Steel Mesh Fireplace

This lightweight and portable campfire stand holds your firewood in a woven stainless steel mesh net that is suspended above the ground. The legs fold for transportation and storage. When you are ready to pack up and head for home, just roll the net, collapse the stand and drop it into the carrying bag! This is a great way to cook food using a campfire tripod as well as cooking food on sticks (yes, that is coming up later in this post!)

14. Wood Burning Potable Folding Stainless Steel Camp Stove

Backpackers and car campers who don’t want to carry lots of bulky cook gear but want to be able to cook over an open fire will love this mini folding wood burning campfire stove. It easily snaps together without needing special equipment and when it is dismantled it fits into the carry bag measuring only 10x7x1.5 inches. It is so convenient to be able to cook a meal using twigs, leaves, pinecones, wood or solidified alcohol!

Griddles, Dutch Ovens & Pans

High temperature resistant cast iron pots are a great choice for cooking over hot fires but lighter weight stackable pots are nice to have too. Take time and enjoy the process of building your camp kitchen collection. You’ll be cooking like a world-class camp chef before you know it!

15. Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Reversible Grill/Griddle

The right cast iron outdoor cooking equipment will handle your breakfast and dinner needs. This heavy duty reversible cast iron grill and griddle will cook pancakes, bacon and eggs on the flat side in the morning. Then, turn it over to grill your burgers and steaks at night!

16. Cast Iron Camp Oven, 6-Quart

Cast iron Dutch ovens are the cornerstone of cooking equipment in the great outdoors. I use them to make the majority of my easy campfire recipes. We have several ovens in multiple sizes. I like using our 6 Qt/12 In oven for most of my Dutch oven camping recipes.

17. Lodge Campfire Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Combo Cooker

This combo cooker set has a Dutch oven that doubles as a cast iron campfire cooking pot. It also includes a shallow cast iron skillet that doubles as lid. Personally, I believe the best open fire equipment is made from cast iron but it’s heavy so it’s not a great option for lightweight backpack camping trips.

18. Stanley Even Heat Camp Pro Cookset

This nested cookset is awesome for backpackers and RVers too! There are 11 pieces that all nest together. The kit includes a stock pot, saucepan, frying pan, vented lids, collapsible cutting board, spatula, spoon and two trivets which are neatly held together with a locking bungee.

The multi-layer bottom provides even heating over campfires, stove tops, and grills. The pots and pans are made with 18/8 stainless steel that won’t rust or break and is dishwasher-safe. The removable and foldaway handle systems are the secret to the space-saving design of this unique set.

If spatulas, spoons, cutting boards and trivets are not enough to add to your pots and pans, Stanley makes another set called the Stanley BPA Free Base Camp Cook Set that includes 21 nested pieces and also adds bowls, plates and sporks for 4 plus a dish drying rack.


19. Coleman Camping Cookware 5-Piece Aluminum Nesting Mess Kit

If weight is a consideration, the best campfire cookware is made with aluminum rather than cast iron. Anytime supplies can be “nested” to reduce the space required for packing and storage, it’s a good thing. This portable cook set is a mess kit that includes a cup, frying pan, pot with lid and deep-dish plate.

20. Big Daddy Skillet

Using fry pans in small sizes is almost impossible for oversized portions. The only drawback to this long-handled skillet is that it measures 20.5-inches in diameter and it can take up a large portion of your campfire grill grate. The size also makes it a bit cumbersome to transport. But, this massive skillet is great for feeding big crowds of hungry campers.

21. Stansport Enamel Tea Kettle

Hanging a kettle from a bail handle on a tripod … or … setting it on a camp fire grill grate is an efficient way to quickly heat up water for tea, coffee, freeze dried/dehydrated meals and cooking.

Find out how to make coffee when camping by using different methods. Make a shot of espresso, latte with foam or a plain cup of coffee that is strong and black or loaded with lots of cream and sugar. A coffee percolator is not your only option for brewing coffee to fill your morning mugs!


Dutch Oven Accessories

The right accompaniments improve ease of use because they make clean-up, transportation and storage easier. They also help your gadgets last a very long time.

22. Disposable Liners

If you want next-to-no clean-up, disposable liners are awesome. They’re great for making highly liquid foods, like soups and stews, they are also perfect for making desserts that are baked and lifted out for cooling, like cakes and pies. Liners come in different sizes so make sure it will fit. It’s really hard to put a 12-inch liner in a 10-inch oven! LOL

23. Dutch Oven Tote Bag

Transporting the best camping Dutch oven is easy when you use a tote bag! This bag has a padded bottom, heavy duty zipper and sturdy straps. They are AWESOME! Make sure you get the right size to fit your oven, they come to fit 8, 10, 12 and 14-inch oven sizes.

24. Camp Chef Griddle Bag

A carry bag will protect your griddle from dirt, dust and moisture during transportation and storage. This one has a zipper and weather-resistant liner. It comes in various sizes too.

25. Tall Boy Tripod

You can’t always find the right place to set up a short tripod over a large fire ring. This is the best gadget for large pits because the legs are long enough to straddle them. This design has 60-inch legs with a 36-inch chain.

Lodge Tall Boy TripodLodge Tall Boy TripodLodge Tall Boy Tripod

 

Cooking with a tripod takes a little getting used to because the oven will swing and sway in windy conditions and when you stir your food. 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.


26. Camp Chef 22-Inch Lid Lifter

This lid lifter is NOT the most compact piece of equipment but its ease of use and functionality overcomes that drawback. The design of the handle allows for easy grip and complete control when moving pot lids and ovens. Personally, I prefer lid lifters over pot holders for handling hot cookware.

27. 4-in-1 Cast Iron Folding Finish Camp Dutch Oven Lid Stand

Once you remove the cover during cooking, you need somewhere to put it. If you just set the lid on the ground it may pick up dirt that will fall into the food when you replace it to continue cooking. Setting the top on a stand is a great option to keep it clean and avoid setting the hot cast iron on a surface that may not be able to withstand the heat.

28. Cast Iron 8 Inch Trivet

There is absolutely no reason to scorch food when cooking in a camp oven. You just need to get the food off the bottom of the pan so there’s no direct contact. This gadget will become your best friend when cooking pies in pie plates and large pieces of meat, like roasts, that are not in a simmering sauce. Just set the trivet in the bottom of your oven and place the food on top of it.

29. Chuckwagon Triangle Dinner Bell

A wonderful cook told me you could yell “Dinner Is Ready” or you can just ring a triangle dinner bell. He said they work at your base camp just as well as they do at a backyard picnic. When they hear the clanging sound, the whole family comes running!

The utensils are dishwasher-safe too.

Camp Fire Cooking Equipment On Sticks

Let’s be honest, playing with your food while cooking on sticks is half the fun of camping!

31. Coghlan’s Non-Stick Popcorn Popper

Popping corn around a fire is fun and yummy! You can use this gadget to roast nuts or pop popcorn over an outdoor fire or indoor fireplace. The lid easily slides open to pour out your treat. The really nice thing about this design is the way the handle breaks down to be stored inside the popper.

34. Chuckwagon Waffle Iron

You just put the food inside the basket, hold it over the fire and flip to cook the other side. It closes securely so you don’t have food falling into the fire.

Cowboy Campfire Cooking Equipment

Culinary cowboys are some of the best outdoor cooks on the planet! Typically they consider wrought iron to be the right equipment for the job.

Cowboy Campfire Cooking Equipment is Campfire Cooking Equipment You Can’t Live Without by CampingForFoodies

Cowboy Cooking Stands

Traditionally cowboys would carry their gear in a chuckwagon which was a horse-drawn wagon modified with a box for holding their cowboy cooking equipment, open fire cooking stands and essentials like flour, sugar, beans and coffee. Today’s camp cooks can create their own version of a cowboy kitchen.


43. Bruntmor Grill Swing Campfire Cooking Stand BBQ Grill

The grill swing is a portable campfire cook stand that’s easy to set up. You just take it out of its carrying case and fold out the collapsible legs (they operate like a tripod but there are just two legs on each side that create an A-style tripod structure.)

The horizontal pole is what everything hangs from including the grill swing that supports a camp oven and different length hooks. The sturdy steel adjustable cooking grate measures 11×16 inches and has a 1/2 inch lip around the edges.

    I am looking for a meat basket to use to put a full rack of ribs in for over the fire/coals. It needs to be at least 19 inches by 10 inches and adjustable height. Do you or do you know anyone who makes a meat basket that big?

    1. Hi Connie, Thanks for stopping by! There are several camp cooking options for cooking a full rack of ribs over the fire/coals. All of these are adjustable so you can control the heat as you cook and I’ve indicated the size of the grilling surface of each piece of equipment:
      Texsport 24″ x 16″ Grilling Surface
      Titan 24” x 24 Grilling Surface
      Sunnydaze 40″ Diameter Grilling Surface
      Texsport 24″ x 16″ Grilling Surface

      I hope this helps and enjoy your ribs!
      Happy camping, Kim
