Default Campfire Cooking Irons

I have always wanted a quality set of cooking fire irons, and I'm going to order a set from here...

Does anyone else use fire irons? They can range from very standard, to quite ornate. But somehow, I just can't see a campsite complete without them. If you use them, what kind and where did you acquire them? They aren't easy to find these days. X

I have seen many campers with them, but I dont have any at the moment. I would like a pair, but like you say, you dont see them much anymore. I just figured I was going to have to make my own set, which i just havent taken the time to do yet.

Wow, if you have the facilities, the possibilities are endless making your own set. You could do some very clever things with fire irons.

I would like to make a set of these myself, or at least have someone help. I have a friend who is a good welder, so thats a great idea. May have to look around for some good design ideas and build me some.

I purchased a set of these on Ebay because they were cost efficient, and I just want to start somewhere. They came with a good starting set of tools and irons.

These are cool because they are four legged and they fold up...

I could think of some really cool things to do with fire irons. Some are in twisted rods...pretty fancy. I also went out today and bought my first set of cast iron skillets. I'll be seasoning them tomorrow. Now all I need ofr sure is a pot, a dutch oven, and a coffee pot, and I'm ready for some cowboy cookin'. lol. X

I'm going to customize mine by adding this little jewel to one of the uprights...

Adjust-A-Grill

It should be a pretty complete cooking station. I'll have alot of fun with it in any case. X

My newest purchase just came in

Amazon.com: Rotisserie Grill and Spit: Sports & Outdoors

I'm almost tempted to start a fire in the backyard just so I can use it

That looks nice, good pick up. I would be very tempted to test that out myself. Let us know how well it works.
