live fire cooking equipment can be a fun and rewarding experience. But it can also be a lot of work. Cooking over the fire can be a challenge, especially when you’re working with a campfire kitchen that doesn’t provide enough space to cook all of your meals. But with a few choice kitchen tools and some practice, you can cook up delicious food over the open flames of the campfire.
The most important tool you need is a campfire kitchen, a grill that elevates your blaze into a cooking platform, so you can cook in the open air while still keeping your meal warm and safe. The grill also lets you easily flip foods over the coals, making it easy to create even heat and crispness when cooking over a campfire.

Once you have your campfire grill, the next thing to invest in is a metal rack that you can use to hold skillets, Dutch ovens and other pots over the open flames of the campfire. It’s best to bring a flat metal rack that has legs so you can rest it on a sturdy surface, like a rock.
To build a fire that will be good for cooking, start with tinder, such as crumpled paper and thin pieces of dry twigs. Add more tinder and small twigs, then gradually add thicker branches and logs. When the wood catches fire, wait for it to burn until all the flames die down and you have white coals. This will take up to 45 minutes.
