Forged Iron Tripod, Well Made Cooking Tool
Good Equipment Makes Camping More Enjoyable
Our Tripods are forged from solid iron stock in a gauge heavier than most standard cooking sets. Our tripods will serve you for many seasons of good eating. Walter tempers the iron for strength and has used input from our customers to come up with a versatile design that is easy to assemble and care for.
We also found that one size doesn't fit all. There are many personal preference for camp cooking. We want you to have just what you need and encourage custom orders. Grates and hangers can be made for your tripod or as separate pieces that will work in conjunction with your existing equipment.
The 5 piece set includes 3 forged iron legs and an adjustable chain and hook. The main leg has a forged loop that hangs over the center of the fire pit for holding dutch ovens. The adjustable chain and hook system allow your ovens to hang at any height over the fire. The two support legs thread on to the main leg at the top hook and at 45 to 50 inches long will stand or spread to the height that best suits your fire pit. The 5th piece is a Pigtail Fork that also works well as a lid lifter.
If your outdoor cooking needs would be better suited by an H frame set up, you simply drive the two legs into the ground and run the main support leg through the loops at the top of each support leg. We do recommend that you stake your legs off when set up in an H frame. Cast iron cookware is quite heavy and staking will ensure a stable cooking frame.
Care for your Custom Forged Campfire Equipment
We highly recommend dry storage for your Iron Tripod and other iron dutch oven cooking equipment. Iron that is subjected to open flame and used outdoors will need some light care. Polish your tripod occasionally with a beeswax based polish. Beeswax is a wonderful natural protectant for ironwork. Spray bees wax can be purchased at Lehmans Brothers. Should rusting occur, clean your tripod with boiled linseed oil. It will remove the rust and condition your iron. Rub excess with an old dry cloth and apply a fresh coat of bees wax.
