Ultralight grill for fish, tortillas, sausages, etc. on 12/17/2013 13:46:20 MST Print View

I'm looking for an ultralight grill I can use with my emberlit wood stove.

Something without a massive amount of weight (obviously).

It would also be nice if I could use it to heat up tortillas and possibly make quesadillas...

I haven't been able to find anything decent to date.

I imagine I could just use a piece of aluminum foil under the tortilla along with the grill to prevent the tortillas from burning or catching on fire.

Thoughts?

I'm not entirely sure about the feasibility of this, but you could probably buy 4 tiny carbon fiber tubes (or just use sticks) and then buy titanium mesh. If you can stick the four tubes into the ground, you can pre-drill holes on the sides sticking into the air, and attach the titanium mesh (perhaps with some type of cord?) and create a platform.

I can't say I've ever tried this (or if its what you're looking for) but it's probably the lightest set up if you're trying to bring a "grill" while backpacking. When you're done you could just roll up the mesh and stick it back into your pack.

Kevin, check out QiWiz.net. Rob makes the FireFly stoves, and I make the Mini Grills to fit them (and also regular size grills and supports/tent stakes called Stix). People have bought a Mini Grill and a set of Stix to support it over an Emberlit.

If you have any questions about these products, feel free to send me a PM. If you have any questions about Esbit, GPS systems, or trekking in the Himalaya, contact B.G.

I picked up some cooling racks at the dollar store. Light and cheap.

Something like this (but lighter):

I use it on a campfire using the rocks to hold it up.

Check out Lawson equipment: http://lawsonequipment.com/Backpacking-Grills-c129/

They're all under $20 and free shipping over $10. All his stuff is made in the US and he makes the best cords/lines. Have no experience with the grill, but it's a good price.

I have many times used safety wire wrapped around a forked stick as a grill. This wire obviously has many other uses but as a grill it is great.Backpack grill

nice options... on 12/17/2013 15:45:31 MST Print View

so it seems my options are pretty open:

... I'm thinking of making my own 'stove' by just cooking on the ground and using titanium foil as a wind screen. a 24" piece of foil weighs just 30g and has a diameter of 7" ... Though I admit that I might go a bit larger so I can have a real fire inside.

I need to look at my options here and figure out the right way to do this.

I suspect I can build a new setup for like a 40% weight savings which is much larger.

Now, in this holiday gift season, nothing warms the heart like a gift of titanium.

+1 on the dollar store.

I have seen metal cooling racks at the dollar store that look like they would work great for some ultralight grilling. I haven't purchased up yet but maybe I will go out this week and report back. I'm not sure how long they would last but for only a dollar it is worth a try and I think they come in packs of three.

Purcell Grills are indestructible. I even regularly cook flat bread on on mine.
