Brings back great camping memories as a kid - waking-up in a tent and smelling the Coleman. Mom's up making breakfast, and boy, am I hungry!

I use a cooking crane over the open fire it has a grill top and a crane for hanging a cast iron dutch oven.
A blacksmith made it for me and food tastes so good cooked over a hardwood fire

Fire starter

Hello to all,
I am new to the community (looking), but have been a camper for years. Laundry lint makes a great starter! I personally hang my laundry, but collect it from others. My husband is a bee keeper with loads of surplus wax. A den mother friend says mixing the lint & melted wax, then pouring into cardboard egg carton molds enables individual use. Haven't tried it yet, but understand the wax burns off without residue.

Hi Nurstratton.

Thanks for the info on the lint/bee wax/egg cartons, that sounds like a great fire starter.

I have also tried a method suggested by someone else on this forum -- cooking oil and newspaper. This worked, but I found it a little "iffy".

Electric Grill is great for Bacon & eggs, hamburger patties, & grilled cheese. Also travels easier than propane grill. However propane grill works better for me for things that are cooked in a pot.

I love the charcoal grill and chimney starter - it's dead easy, provides great heat, is easy to control - and natural charcoal. I also use a Coleman stove and a small propane grill, and love a campfire when there's time for that.
