A campfire cooking grill is one of the handiest, (and least expensive), pieces of camping gear you can have. And it doesn’t have to be a 30-pound cast iron monster either.
A folding grill grate like the pictured Coleman model works great, isn’t too heavy, and takes up very little space. Even when your camp site fire-ring has a grill you will still find yourself using this one too!
