Campfire Tripod: Essential Kit!

This campfire tripod is actually a way more essential piece of kit than I expected it to be, and from now on I’m almost certainly bringing it to every camping trip I go on, especially if it’s with friends! Together with the DayHaven tipi tent, pictured above, EasyCamp sent me their Campfire Tripod Deluxe (see more here), and it’s easily one of the best additions to my camping kit that I’ve had recently. In fact, my friends were raving about it on our last trip, so I dare not forget to include it every time we go away now!

It’s relatively small and lightweight, easy to pack away and reassemble (I use a cheap screwdriver to attach the legs, and keep it in the box with the rest of the parts), and the only hassle is emptying the ashes after a fire – which is always going to be an issue with any BBQ or firepit. But I love the fact that you get the tripod with the chain on a pulley, so you can lower or raise the cooking grill. It makes it really easy to adjust the temperature for cooking, or just pull the grate out of the way when it gets dark and you want to tell spooky stories around the campfire…

You can burn coal, wood, processed log fires – anything you fancy. And, because it’s raised off the ground, you can use it in most campsites that allow BBQs without a risk of a fire hazard, or needing to cart around stones to pop underneath your fire to stop scorch marks on the grass.

As we move into the end of the year, I’m sure I’ll be breaking this out for Halloween ghost stories, bonfire night, and dark tales told around a crackling fire…

In my next post, I’ll be sharing a couple of super simple cooking ideas to get you started with your own campfire tripod!

Thank you to EasyCamp for providing my camping tripod for review.
