Iron Cooking Grill

This is an iron cooking grill, hand made on a coal fired forge at Graysburg Forge in Greene County, Tennessee. The design idea came from the grills that many of the Civil War Reenactors had at the 146th annual Battle of Gettysburg reenactment that we attended last year. This is a great item for Civil War Reenactors or Pioneer Reenactors.

This grill comes completely apart for ease of packing and transport. It is very easy to assemble, and comes in 18 pieces -- 4 legs approx. 22" tall and 2 frame pieces approx. 32" long (all made using 3/8" round iron) and 12 cross pieces approx. 15" long made from 1/4" round iron. The legs are driven into the ground a few inches. This grill is meant to be directly over your cooking fire. I finish the cross pieces with a non-toxic beeswax finish that will eventually burn off, but initially protects the metal from rusting (let me know if you prefer no finish). The rest of the pieces are finished in flat black paint, or on request with a traditional beeswax finish.The cross pieces are attached to the frame piece with a loop, so they are secure. The cross pieces slide freely on the frame piece and are completely adjustable from one end to the other. Spread them out for a large pan, move them to opposite ends for cooking at the fire's edge, or space them as you want to grill a hot dog or a steak. After a customer's suggestion, I bring the ends of these cross pieces to a point so you could also use them as skewers. Another customer wanted a way to ensure that the grill sides didn't spread apart, so now with two of the cross pieces I put a loop on both ends. Put these pieces at each end of the grill to make it even sturdier! I'm always open to suggestions from customers. This is YOUR CUSTOM IRONWORK!

This is a very simple and beautiful design for a grill. It is very heavy and sturdy and as long as you sink the legs it's not going anywhere. I've pictured a Dutch oven on it for demonstration. ** Dutch oven is not included with the grill**. The grill is easily big enough for two pots or a pot and an iron frying pan.

This Iron Cooking Grill set is entirely hand made using the same tools and techniqes used by generations of American Blacksmiths. These would be great for Civil War or other historical re-enactors, campers, boy scouts, girl scouts, hunters, or anyone interested in open fire outdoor cooking! If you like hand crafted ironwork that LOOKS like hand crafted ironwork, complete with hammer strikes and a not-too-perfect antique look, you will LOVE this set.
