PORTABLE FIRE GRATE

This generously proportioned fire grate quickly breaks down for easy portability. The two side rails are nearly 2 feet long, and the intervening space contains 10 sliding rails which will support even your heaviest cook pot, black iron skillet, or Dutch oven. I set the sliding rails closer together to cover only half the fire, and leave the other half of the fire open for roasting meat. When the cooking’s done, I slide all of the rails to the rear and enjoy the fully open fire for the rest of the evening. This one stands on four 18-inch posts that provide plenty of clearance for stacking firewood underneath. I forged this rig from 30 feet of 3/8ths square steel.
