Have you ever wanted to cook a mean steak over the campfire but you just didn’t have a way? I mean you could toss it on a rock by the coals, or be a real woodsmen and put it ON the coals, but not everyone wants to eat ash on their steak. Enter the Expedition Research Bushcraft Grill.
Available in 2 sizes, the Expedition Research Grill gives you a lightweight and highly packable cooking grate to take on your next backpack/bushcraft outing. The grill is made out of stainless steel and available as a 9.5″ x 5″, or 5″ x 5″. I found that the 9.5″ x 5″ is a pretty decent size. Truthfully this is a 1 person cooking grate as the space is limited and you will lose even more cooking space when you prop the ends up to cook.
I found the grate to be an awesome cook top for a pan. The first night I used it, it was the cook top for a frying pan as I cooked a great steak.
The fit and finish of the Expedition Research Grill appeared to be good at first, but after further examination, I can see some flaws. Some of the welds are not clean, some of the grates are a little off, and my fingers found a few small burrs along the edges. I hit the rough spots with a file, and accepted that I bought a $10 piece of metal to go in a fire so the others can be overlooked.
Overall, the Expedition Research Grill is a great addition for anyone looking to add to their camp kitchen setup. I look forward to seeing what other products they turn out in the future.
