Zia grill--holiday sale on 11/06/2011 09:49:42 MST Print View

I would like to make a holiday offering for the Zia titanium grills. From now until December 31, the price for a grill will be $45, which includes PayPal fees as well as CONUS and Canadian shipping (for overseas people, I will have to check actual postage rates and modify the price slightly). If you are interested in the 2-grill setup to sandwich your fish, I will do that for $85 and I will include the two connector rods. This offer will be open to all, BPL members and also non-members. Same price for everybody.

For a look at the BPL product page, when they used to sell the grills, go to this link:

For general information about the grill, and to see how the "two grill" setup works, go to this thread:

http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/forums/thread_display.html?forum_thread_id=52472&disable_pagination=1

If you have any questions regarding the grill, please post on this thread, and I'll try to answer them.

I realize that it's a bit out of season to be cooking trout over a fire (in the northern hemisphere), but this would be a good chance to plan ahead for next spring, and score a grill cheaply. It will also make an unusual holiday gift for someone on your list that thought he/she already has everything imaginable.

If you are interested, please post on this thread that you want one, and then send an e-mail to my home account---drzooz@aol.com

If you would like a matched set of two, I will send them to you for $85, and I will include 2 connector rods. If you are interested, PM me, or preferably, send an e-mail to my home: drzooz@aol.com

Great product! Used them for my recent bday overnighter to cook up a nice 8oz buffalo steak. Made for a wonderful birthday dinner.

Thanks, Cody. Buffalo Birthday Bash--you've got style!

Here's my technique, with 2-8 oz. filets. I create a small alcove off to the side of the main campfire, then simply shove the coals under the grill as needed. It's easy to control the amount of heat this way.

steaks on grill

To boil water, I find that setting the pot partially on the support rock takes some of the weight off the grill and provides better stability.

Pot placement

A couple people have contacted me to tell me that their grills sagged horribly under load. I have never experienced this, but intense heat under a heavily loaded grill could certainly bend things downward. This is completely reversible, and the titanium isn't harmed. When it cools, simply bend the grill over your knee and shape it back to the way it was. These grills do have their limitations, and it is important to learn to use them properly. The key is to spread the weight evenly over the length of the grill, such as when grilling fish, and to employ your pot as shown in the photo above.

Thanks again, Cody--your support is appreciated.

Got my grill today, very fast shipping and delivery.

It's incredibly light and seems up to the task as as a lightweight packable grill. Quality is excellent, can't wait to try it out in the field.

Thanks Gary.

Zia grill price drop though May on 05/17/2012 16:53:48 MDT Print View

Just a reminder--I am cutting the price of the Zia grills through the end of the month. A single grill for $45, and a matched double set with connectors for $85. Prices include shipping, as always.

Starting in early June, I will be tied up for most of the summer, out of town working and/or hiking, so I might not be able to ship anything in a timely manner. Now's your chance!
