Cooking over an open fire is an experience that makes you think of the hard-working, hard-living cowboys who appreciated a good day in the saddle and a good meal cooked as the sun was setting. This campfire grill project is a tribute to that spirit. Easy to weld and install over an existing fire pit, our cowboy grill will have you cookin' up steaks and singin' "Home on the Range" in no time.
This campfire grill has space to cook enough grub for your whole posse, plus a handy condiment shelf for your spices. A natural tree-branch handle and a decorative rock at the top add rustic flavor (and help minimize any chances of accidental injury in case you've got little cowpokes runnin around).
