We'll be ordering the "Fire Chief" in the next couple weeks and I'd be more than happy to give you all the full review if anyone is interested! Our 'MacGyver' mechanic is coming up with a way to add a chain-drive to the spit using spare parts that are lying around the shop. We'll write the manual when he's done!

Allen, I made it to Webelo Scout, if that counts! I quit when I was getting more homework assignments from the Scouts than I was from school. Never cared for homework!

fav cooking tools

Howdee,
My favorite campfire cooking tool is: aluminum foil, heavy duty! For yummy packets.

My second favorite is an old grate from a gas grill. They are large enough to fit over all or part of a campfire. I usually stack some rocks on both sides of a campfire and put the grate there. On one side of the campfire I have a fire, and keep moving the glowing coals under the grate. Love to cook burgers, steaks & chops this way, and packets too. You can also put the coffee pot or pots on it.

My third favorite are sticks. Obviously for weenies, marshmallows, and other things.

Pump up Coleman Stove

Although my family did not camp when I was a small child, my folks would occasionally pack up the kids at 0'dark thirty, and drive down to the lake to cook breakfast on a Coleman stove. The smell of bacon cooking in the great outdoors is something that has stuck with me through the years.

Before we had kids, my wife & I used to take week-long tent camping vacations where we loaded everything, including my dad's Coleman stove, up in the Suburban, and hit the road.

We now camp in a refurbished Airstream travel trailer which has all the conveniences of home. But, as we reaffirmed this past weekend, nothing beats the smell of bacon cooking on my dad's Coleman stove. Well, steaks cooking on the campground's fire pit does come really close!

I can't remember the last time we went camping that fires even in pits were allowed...

so, we always just bring our backpacking stove. I can't remember the brand but even with the gas hooked on it only weighs less than a pound. Paul has an old girlscout pan and we use that for frying and we have a small sauce pan that we use for boiling water or heating soups or cooking hotdogs. We always get full but, I'm afraid that our camp meals are pretty dull.

DampCharcoal:

I've been using that for a few years now (as well as the Angle Iron Grill and many of their other products) with absolute great results!



I have the whole set up and i really couldn't ask for anything better as far as size and usefulness. I have found with side hangers, there is enough residual heat to keep a good hot pot of coffee and/or depending on wind direction it's great for a slow stewing process.

Also, my wife thinks i need help......She has been calling me a Cabelas Junkie (for over 8 years now) and said that she will cut my Cabelas credit card and put my in rehab if i go more than twice a month. Heeheehee

That sounds like the MSR Whisperlite. It's just a little thing, with a hose that attaches to a SIGG fuel bottle.

I just dragged out my big 2-burner Coleman camp stove. It's still got fuel in it, but for the life of me, I can't get it to hold any pressure. I think the rubber seal for the pump needs to be replaced.

My wife and I still hike off into the mountians on occasion and we still use her old aluninum Girl Scout cooking and eating set. It is a great diet aid 'cause you can't possiblie put a 'nuff food in it to overeat.


Car camping=No Limits!

BBQ Fish that setup rocks.......

my favorite campfire cooking tool is a stick, beer (to keep me balanced, becuase the stick is so heavy ) and one of those chair that set low to the ground
